Date Problem with Calibre

I have Calibre set up to fetch news in the evening (6-8pm) and email it to my Kindle 3's free address via Gmail.
It all works fine, but when I sync my Kindle the fetched News feeds have tomorrows date.
I checked Calibre's published date and that is correct, I checked Gmail's sent emails and the time and dates are correct.
I checked 'Manage My Kindle' page and the Delivery dates are correct.
Could it be the Amazon servers???

Any ideas?

thanks

Ok I just looked at the .opf file for my feeds and they have this:
Code:
<dc:date>2011-01-12T04:07:35.302000+00:00</dc:date>
<meta content="2011-01-12T04:09:17.558000+00:00" name="calibre:timestamp"/>
I should be 2011-01-11T10:07......2011-01-12T04:09 respectively
I'm Central Time


thanks

The dates are GMT (the +00:00) so the first date is 4:07 AM on the 12/Jan, or 22:07 on 11/Jan for central time (-06:00). These seem correct to me.

Looks like Amazon is not doing the date calculations right when correcting the time crosses midnight.

You can probably fix this by sending the email at 06:05 instead of 04:05.

Ok, so it's amazon..I did send amazon an email asking whether it could be their server.
Thanks for that.
