Default United States Daylight Savings Time

If I choose my timezone I am able to see what time someone typed in a message in the forums in my timezone but what impact does "United States Daylight Savings Time" have?

It determines whether or not the time is adjusted to reflect daylight savings time as observed in most parts of the United States.

In spring and summer the time is advanced one hour to provide more "daylight" time.

Since you're not in the U.S., I would suggest you don't select this option.

Many, in fact most countries don't have any concept of "daylight savings time." The few that do don't always have the same start/stop dates used in the U.S. (first Sunday in April, last Sunday in October respectively).

And yes, as it says below my name in the forums, I'm in the U.S.

I see..
In Denmark (and in the EU) we change to summertime the last Sunday in March and wintertime when you do.

It doesn't say where you're from if one reads the messages in outlook and just click the reply link.
