In this scenario, the read receipt displays the date and the time based on the time zone setting of the Exchange server. For example, the time zone setting of the client computers is (GMT-5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) and the time zone setting of the Exchange server is (GMT-8:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada). Client computer 1 sends a message to client computer 2. The message requests a read receipt. When the message is read, client computer 1 receives a read receipt that shows the date and time information of the (GMT-8:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) time zone.
The time zone that is used to create the read receipt is taken from the server instead of from the client computer. This causes an issue when the time zone of the Exchange server differs from the time zone of the client computer.
