Thank you for your post.
Under Windows, when sending emails from FileMaker Server, although the time is correct, the timezone offset does not update during Daylight Savings. Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue, and I have attached your post to the original report. When more information becomes available, I will post again.
You'd think that they would have fixed this one in v14 as it was first reported in V13.
For More Information see: FMServer Email Notifications have incorrect sent time
This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List thread here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.
It can also be downloaded as a database file from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jt09b82i0xijbu3/FMP%20Bugs.zip
We are seeing a LOT of issues with v14, and are frankly on the cusp of rolling back to v12 and seeking a replacement product as it very much looks like FM is simply not stable or reliable anymore. Knowing they can't even use the system clock properly for the last year and two major versions is rather telling of that in my opinion. 73 pages of known bugs dating back 5 years would be another.
I personally closed over 60 known bugs with the release of 14. That leaves a lot still unfixed, but it far more than I needed to do for any other release since I created the Known bugs list. Please note that reports stay in the threads and the database after they are fixed and are marked as "closed" only if someone reports the issue as having been fixed. This makes the KBL decently useful for checking to see if a bug has been previously reported, but not very good at reporting if they have been fixed--a function for which this DB was never really designed to support.
Can we have an update on the status us this bug? This bug was present in FMS13, 14, 15 and now 16... it's been over two years since it was confirmed, and yet it still plagues FileMaker users.
The problem of sending email with correct times has been solved throughout the entirety of internet for over 20 years now -- I'm having a hard time justifying FMI's inability to do so within 2 years. It looks very bad to IT/MIS that such a basic, yet very "in your face" bug, is still unresolved in FM16!
I have the IT department of a very prominent entertainment conglomerate asking us for word from FileMaker on this issue.
There is no update at this time.
