Send mail log showing wrong time

Send mail log showing wrong time

Send mail log showing wrong time

Dear all

I am using linux server with send mail as mail server.  recently i am facing problem and that is send mail time and server time is is diffrent about 6 hours.  

when  i put date command its return

[root@server~]# date
Sat May 28 04:28:18 GMT 2011

when i put date -u its show

[root@server ~]# date -u
Sat May 28 10:29:08 UTC 2011

sendmail log showing log time like this

May 28 10:27:43 my server pop3-login: Login: unify [::ffff:]
May 28 10:27:44 myserver pop3-login: Login: delmark [::ffff:]
May 28 10:28:06 myserver pop3-login: Login: unify [::ffff:]

I think send mail is not picking up the date from the system.  I have correctly setup TZ in server.  

Can any one help me for about time diffrent.  or how can i force send mail to use GMT+6

thaks.  Waiting for a good answer
