    I can't figure out how to fix this problem. I installed the app because I started using the tablet for work and needed an email client for a pop3 account. I installed it and set up the email account and I can send and receive mail just fine the only problem is that the received time displayed is wrong. I sent myself an email from a computer at work at 10am. The email on my phone says the email was sent at 10am. My computer says it was sent at 10am too, but k-9 is displaying that the mail was sent at 6am! The time on my vizio is correct so I really have no clue.

    Anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong?

    Sounds like an incorrect timezone has been input SOMEWHERE!

    No, I don't have it on my phone....just the tablet. I'm trying to see if there is any setting for timezone in the mail app itself, but I an't find one. I can't find anything on the k-9 website either.

    Found it! it was set to Pacific time zone when I'm in the Eastern Time zone! The setting was in the Tablet's settings not the mail program. Thanks for suggesting this!
