How to change time zone on yahoo mail?

People keep saying "Change the on the bottom right corner of your computer blah blah blah" but that doesn't work for mine. The time of my computer is correct, but the time in my yahoo mail is not. It says things like 6:42AM when I know that I got the email at 10:42PM. It has to be a yahoo issue.

    CHANGE YOUR TIME ZONE IN YAHOO:

    1. Click on the "Calendar" tab at top of your yahoo mail page.

    2. Click on the "Options" link in Calendar.

    3. Click on "General Preferences" in calendar options.

    4. To select your time zone from the page that opens,

    click the blue down arrow across from "Time Zone" and select your country. Then save.

    Note: Yahoo is on Pacific Time for all mail in the US.

    It's GMT -8:00 US/Canada Pacific

      Did this; computer time is correct and the calendar is set properly but mail is still off. Any other ideas?

    I'm not sure if anyone has figured this out, but for me here is how I fixed this:

    Click the Calendar Tab

    Click the Settings Gear drop down in the top right area

    Click Calendar Options

    Change the timezone to desired zone

    Click save

    Click Back to Calendar in the top left area

    That worked for me!

      This worked for me. You do have to logoff and log back in to see the changes.
