The important part for getting the right time on your messages is the time zone offset (GMT-0700). It shows the adjustment that must be applied, in hours and minutes, to UTC (née GMT) to get the local time. All times in messages are adjusted to this offset. If it is not correct, adjust the time zone in your operating system, restart your browser and try again.
For US time zones, IE uses a non-standard display:
