    It makes no difference if you are posting from the moon.
    Your TIME ZONE is incorrect. You need to double click
    on your system clock and correct the Time Zone, NOT the

    Your post shows here as Wed, 16th July, 16:22hrs.
    It is STILL Tue 15th July, 23:34hrs. If your time zone
    was set correctly, it would show at the correct time and
    date on any server in the world.

    Your time header says:
    which says you are posting according to Microsoft Default Timezone.

    Really? When did Australia adopt US Pacific Daylight Time as a time

    Your post originated at:

    Date: Wed, 16 Jul 2003 08:22:35 -0700

    according to your headers. Notice the -0700? That's the same time
    zone Redmond, Washington is in.

    Methinks you still haven't checked your settings.

  4. I had the same issue and just deleted the account and re installed it
    Everything worked for me..
    Don't worry about the time thing.. I lived in Sydney and loved it.

    Hi All,

    Since i loaded W2K onto my computer my Hotmail e-mail has been able to
    download using Outlook Express. I reccently modified the Internet Explorer
    Cipher strength from 56-bit to 128-bit and since then i have not been able
    to download (or even access) my hotmail from Outlook Express. Is it possible
    to have both the 128-bit setting as well as the ability to download email?

    Using IE6 SP1

  7. Champagne Mike,
    Of all the ngs I "attend" (?) only this one and the freeware group,
    alt.sport.horse-racing, alt.sport.horse-racing.systems and
    rec.gambling.racing are concerned with this issue of the clock. The reasons
    are obvious for the gambling ng's because of claims of posting winners in
    order to run scams or falsely claim bragging rights for picking a good
    winner, but here in the computer groups the reasons are not so obvious to
    newbies and practiced clickers as well. Care to explain to some of us
    utilizers of the net why this is so worrisome to the crowd that does make a
    big deal of it?

    ( I mean no offense with the term Champagne...I just don't know how to do
    those bubbles surrounding your name..it is just a differentiation term)

    It's not a big deal. Many posters have questions about a computer
    problem and a bad clock setting is 1) obvious and can be solved and 2)
    perhaps symptomatic of other problems and 3) something that screws up
    the sorting in my newsreader.

    As far as the sorting in my newsreader goes, if the poster doesn't fix
    their clock when asked then I just killfile them at their next
    appearance. Not a big deal.

    Date: Thu, 17 Jul 2003 02:46:27 +1000 would translate to Wed 16:46 GMT

    'Now' it's about 17:15 GMT (check my time header). You're not in the
    future anymore and if you posted ~30 min ago it looks good.
