  This is correct from strftime as you're in CET, but I think the OP
  refers the date on the mail belongs to a different TZ (-0500) but CM
  is not parsing it or is parsing it incorrectly and, as no timezone
  correction is applied to time, when generated with local timezone is
  not modified and therefore wrong (12:15 -0500 should be 06:15 CET). 

  Not sure this is a problem of the templates though.
