Wrong time in yahoo email

 

I use my Rogers Yahoo email account via Safari on my iPhone6. When I access my inbox, the emails show they are received 6 hours later than they should be. On my laptop and iPad, the emails show the proper time. How do I change the time for the emails on my iPhone (NOT using the mail app)?

Re: Wrong time in yahoo email

Thanks so much for your reply @Gordoonski!

I apologize for the delay in mine Smiley Embarassed

 

I appreciate that you gave us the detailed breakdown of events.

I also think that your trip may have something to do with the issue encountered.

 

Was the reset performed, after you got back to Canada?

 

Could you try to completely log out of your email account, on browser, and then clear your Safari Cache?

I hope this does not cause an inconvenience. Just so you know, it will also erase browser history.

 

To do so: 

  1. Go to Settings > Safari
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and choose Clear History and Website Data
  3. Confirm that you want to do this by tapping on Clear History and Data of Safari.

Once that is completed, you can try and log into your webmail again.

 

Let us know how that goes!

 

If this does not resolve your issue, we can open a ticket in order to have this looked into.

This will, however, require access to your account.

Re: Wrong time in yahoo email

Good evening @Gordoonski,

 

Thank you for you post & Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!

 

Incorrect time on incoming emails can be confusing, making it difficult to keep track of when it was received. 

I totally understand the importance of rectifying this, in order to remain organized.

 

I am hoping you were able to resolve the issue you are experiencing, since you originally posted.

In order to assist you further, we need to ask you a few additional questions:

 

  • When did this start happening, or when did you notice it first?
  • Is it exactly 6 hours off, meaning that a wrong time zone is set somewhere?
  • What troubleshooting measures have you tried, since you realized this?

Looking forward to your reply!

Re: Wrong time in yahoo email

Thank you for your response.

 

I first noticed the incorrect time when I returned from a trip to South Africa. While I was there, there was a 7 hour time difference from EST, but because of daylight savings time here now, the difference is 6 hours. So I am led to believe that it has something to do with my trip there. The odd thing, is that on my ipad, the times are all correct. (I use the mail app to access my mail there). And on my laptop, using Safari to access the Rogers Yahoo mail, the times are also correct. It is only on my iphone, again using Safari to access the Rogers Yahoo mail, that the times are exactly 6 hours different.

 

In terms of troubleshooting, I've looked at the settings on my iphone for time, clock, etc. and all seem to be set correctly for EDT (Ontario). I also did a reset of the phone, but that hasn't changed anything.  I don't recall changing any setting before I left for South Africa, nor while I was there. So I'm pretty much stumped as to why this is happening. If you can offer any suggestions as to what I should check on my iphone, I would be most appreciative.

 

Thanks,

GF

Have you tried to access your email from another computer or device to see if it is isolated to just that one device?

Re: Wrong time in yahoo email

And my iPhone is back to the same old tricks, except now the emails are 4 hours wrong, not six.
