The code for the box display is in tdepim/kmail/headerstyle.cpp. I'm not a C++ guru but from what I think I see, the code is pulling the date/time information from the system. As the time in the clock applet in my kicker panel is correct, and the date command in konsole is correct, I don't know how kmail is shifting the time by one hour, the exact difference of the DST shift last weekend. I don't see anything obvious in tqdatetime.h or ntqdatetime.h.
