Evolution seems to calculate the time zone from JST to CST wrong?

It seems to think that CET is only one hour apart from JST!?

This also effects the ordering.

Is this an Evo problem or a locale issue?

How do you mean?

What he means is that all time zone info is obtained from the system and
is not held within Evo.  Perhaps "CET" or "JST" means something
different to the system than what you think it means - perhaps JST has
been defined as something other than Japanese time?  Perhaps your locale
setting has defined your local timezone to be something other than pure

I get a message from someone in Japan, the message has a Date: header
specified in/with JST. I am in CE(S)T myself, so (apparently) evolution
tries to convert the JST in the header to CET; it adds (..:.. CET,
oblique) to the Date: header. It does this only when "show full headers"
is selected; if "show message source" is selected, the header is left
alone, and no faulty conversion is added.

Well it calculates it correctly for me - I'm in GMT and your last
message says:

Wed, 28 Dec 2005 11:14:38 +0100
(10:14 GMT)

with the (10:14 GMT) in *italics* - I was trying to work out where in
the date header an oblique ("/") could be!  

So this is really an evolution problem.

No, I wouldn't think so - Evo gets all the timezone info externally, so
it can only work on that basis.
