First off, thank you for the original info -- that was exactly what I wanted.

Just to provide a data point, I want to look at the email and easily say
"Oh, it was sent two hours ago."  And the easiest way to do that is to have
the date formatted in my local (or at least, my preferred) time zone.

It doesn't matter to me that it was 16:30 UTC or 08:30 PST.  Only that
it was 11:30 *here* when it happened.
