Summer Time & DST

Some places observe daylight saving time/summer time during the summer, and therefore use HADT (Hawaii-Aleutian Daylight Time) in the summer.

Email Time Zone Indicator: -1000

An email sent from someone in the Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HAST) time zone will have the time zone listed as "-1000" in the headers of the email. (However, "-1000" does not have to be in Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, as other time zones could have the same UTC offset).
