Windows 7 (64-bit) Outlook 2010 (32-bit)

I have a user with Outlook/Office 2010 who sends emails and the time/date is several minutes behind their local system time.

Example: sends a message to and All of them have the same local system time (which is accurate). The time on the clock in user1's system is 1:00 PM but when the recipients receive the message, the Date Sent field is 12:55 PM (effectively 5 minutes BEFORE the message was sent).

Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

Does this problem exist if the user emails himself? – Ramhound Jun 8 '12 at 17:19
Doesn't Outlook take the date from the Received: header added by mail server? – grawity Jun 8 '12 at 17:34
