Not sure if this is really a PHP problem or just Microsoft at work, but
sending email using the "mail" function seems to give incorrect
timezone info in the "Date:" header. eg:

Received:  from becks by macs.wn.bcl.co.nz; Wed, 19 Jan 2000 13:11:34 +1300 (NZDT)

(in this case becks=NT, macs=Unix - +1300 NZDT is correct)

Message-ID:  <200001190011.NAA19048@macs.wn.bcl.co.nz>
Date:             Wed, 19 Jan 2000 13:11:35 -1200

-1200 is wrong.

The NT timezone is set to +12:00 Auckland/Wellington, with Daylight saving enabled.

As far as I can tell from the source code, PHP is not responsible for generating the email message headers.

Do other messages generated by the same server have the correct timezone information?

implementation for mail on microsoft platforms
is in win32/sendmail.c

and in there is generation code for generating
 a Date: header if none was supplied by mail()
function ( see function PostHeader() )

Not sure if it helps, but I have a nearly untested patch
that computes the offset using the diff between
php_localtime_r() and php_gmtime_r(). I never understood
where _timezone came from anyway.

dup of #8909

The #8909 was closed.
