I'll try to explain the best I can...

I have my emails on iPhone synced with an IMAP mail server. When the emails get downloaded to the iPhone's Inbox, the date/time on the emails is displayed +4 HRS ahead of my time zome (I am in US EST). When I open the email, the time displayed in the header portion is correct. In a nutshell, only when I view (list view) all the emails in my Inbox, the timestamp is off by +4 hrs. I checked my time zone setting on the iPhone and they are correct (set to US EST, i.e. New York).

Since I am using an IMAP email server, when I look at my emails in Outlook on my laptop, all timestamps are correct.

The issue is only when viewing the list of emails in my iPhone's INBOX.

Has anyone noticed this?

    Yes, I have the same problem. My timestamp is off by about 40 minutes in my iPhone's Inbox list. But if I click on the e-mail, the timestamp is correct. I am wondering if there is a way to fix this or whether Apple is aware of this problem and a fix can be expected soon.
