I did the check, and the output shows exactly 2 hours earlier than my current
time. The original post to this list had some problems. I received a
return message that some quota on the other end was exceeded ? Maybe
that's got something to do with it ? I just sent a test message to a
webmail account, but it showed the right time.

And your check on my server gives

Wed Jun 18 22:29:15 UTC 2003

So this seems not to have a >10 minute difference.

Ok let's see how this mail travels to Würzburg ;)
