_every_ user can have its on timezone. And how timestamps look in mails is
defined in one of the many RFCs, and has really (on linux) _nothing_ todo
with the BIOS time, or System-Default-Timezone.

If you send mails, and the timezone is incorrect, then simply set the correct
timezone in KDE/Gnome/...or LC_TIME

and to repeat:

	Time in an running Linux, has _nothing_ todo with your BIOS clock.
