This one has the wrong time. Your previous message had the correct

And I incorrectly assumed that you were using a Java based email

be able to deduce is that your email program is, I've never heard of
MIMI::Lite.  Email programs should pick up the time data from your OS,
which is correct. 

Actually, we have a similar issue with the archives on mailman, except
it reports the time as EDT all year, and mailman is Python based. But,
since we are passed April 1, the old DST switch date, the DST changes
should not be affecting you even if they were not applied.
