Whenever I send internet mail with exchange it puts strange garbage
for my timezone, for example:

	Received: by malvinas.AtlanTech.COM with Microsoft Mail
		id <01BA7D33.6C0CE...@malvinas.AtlanTech.COM>; 
		Thu, 7 Sep 1995 15:05:51 +-200

	Date: Thu, 7 Sep 1995 15:05:49 +-200

What on earth is "+-200" supposed to mean?

I'm in Paris, France, our time is currently UTC+0200 (daylight savings
time is active), my timezone is set to "Paris, Madrid" in the windows
settings.

It means Exchange is buggy.
It should be "+0200" (until you switch this fall).
