If I look at the Mail Server "Mail Log" (which lists header info for all incoming and outgoing emails), the date of every entry is exactly one day too early. For example, an email received at 9:00am on September 1 will be listed as having been received at 9:00am on August 31. This is despite the fact that the NAS knows what the correct date is for all other purposes. (For example, Control Panel / Regional Options / Time shows the correct date.)

Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

Gah, nvm, I see this was posted about previously, in the topic "mail server log time is incorrect," back in June.
So anyway, it's still not fixed. :(

Hello.
That happened after a upgrade?
I dont use that app but you can expose that issue on synology support :

Give they more details like NAS model (just one model or in more?) and DSM version for example.

I see that you have more NAS models.
You can try test that particular app in other NAS model and see if it works.

My zone time shift in the log seems to be fixed after updating to release 3 today. I’ve skipped the previous release though.

I’ve just checked maillog under @maillog. Date and time are correct.
Try the “turn it off and on again” trick. Restart if possible.

I'll test this when I have time to upgrade and add in my overwritten edits. The security fix is for Dovecot and mine isn't directly accessible (only locally by Mail Station).

OK! Finally got around to updating Mail Server.

Yep now my log events are showing the same date/time as messages in my iPhones mail app. That's UK summer time, until Sunday 29th when we'll see what happens when we go back to GMT.

I don't have any new log events for mail messages since restarting the server but the messages prior to the upgrade are all showing the correct date and time.

Hmm, I'm on the latest version of Mail Server (1.6.9-0505) and the dates in the Mail Server log are still one full day off.

Just wait until the next update then. Hopefully it’ll be “magically” fixed :)
That’s what happened to me. Or log a support request and prepare to give them remote access. They will ask for it for sure.
