Hi all, , strange one here for ya all, ,

A freind of mine rang me earlier and mentioned a problem with her AOL / TALKTALK email client.
All of her emails are arriving with a time one hour behind GMT, , its not really a problem as such but its really been annoying her since she noticed it.

I sent her a test email at 15:15 and it arrived on her pc straight away, but saying 14:15 as the time.
Her vista pc is set up correctly and the vista clock is set to gmt so its not the pc, its the email client.
She uses AOL (talk talk ) for her web mail ( doesnt use windows mail or anything ) so its the only client she has, , there doesnt appear to be any option for changing the time within the emails tools and as she is about 150 miles away from me, i cant get to work on the pc myself so i am trying to help via telephone.

Has anyone got any ideas that i can explore to help her out , ,as i say, its not a problem but sice she noticed it its been driving her mad ! !

I don't use AOL, but look at this info and see it it will help:

Time Stamp and Online Clock Show Incorrect Time

Somewhere in her account or set up she has the wrong GMT time selected which affect the mail she receives.
