If it's always exactly two hours, I'm willing to bet that somewhere
between Antonio and your computer, there's a computer that doesn't know
what time zone it's in, which is causing confusion. Maybe even it's
getting there immediately and your mail program is just displaying its
time two hours off, which is messing up your mail sorting? Just an idea.
