Timestamp for email notification
« on: June 01, 2007, 02:04:38 PM »

Hello,

I setup a few macros to email me snapshots of the outside cameras when motion is detected outside. The setup works quite nicely, however when I receive emails the timestamp shown is 4 hours behind my time zone (EST). I looked under AHP options and preferences, but I couldn't find a way to change this. Can anybody tell me where I can go and change this setting? It is missleading and confusing. It almost looks like it's coming from the X10 server, but this should be a user-based parameter, NOT server based.
Thanks,
Azzar0.

If your sending them e-mail you don't need the time stamp your e-mail program states the time and date recieved! ;)
This may still not be dead on but I bet it is closer then 4 hours off! ;)

I am not sure I understand what you mean... My macros send emails with pictures to my work account. When I get the emails at work, the timestamp of the email is 4 HOURS EARLIER. Example: macro kicks in at 10:07 AM, emails 4 pictures (one pic every 30 seconds for 120 seconds). I get those 4 emails AT 10:07 AM, same time they were sent, but the email's timestamp is 6:07 AM. WHY IS THAT and where can I change these settings?
Thanks!

Check your pc time....AHP syncs to whatever pc clock shows.

I assumed the time stamp that was out of sync was the ones on the pics, not the  e-mail recieve time
In any case do what Tinman55  is suggesting on both machines ;) as the e-mail program also gets the time from the PC

The PC time is set to what it is supposed to be set at, that is not the problem. I don't think I am using my ISP to email, I believe I have it set to automatically select the outgoing protocol. Could it be AHP gateway's time?
Thanks

Certainly someone must know the answer to the problem here? Thanks! Any ideas?
