Has anyone else got a problem with the time being incorrect in their iCloud Mail? I'm in the UK but have US times with my emails, which is not very helpful when combined with the fact my mails are not being pushed to my Mac or iPhone either.

An easy fix? I can't see anywhere to change the preferences.
Thanks.

Obviously, be sure the time is correct on every machine that you use with this account.

Does this happen only with email sent when you use the website icloud.com, ie if you send mail using Mail.app from a Mac the time is correct?

I use my rMBP at home and a Mac Pro at work. Both are using auto date and time settings (Apple Europe (time.euro.apple.com)).

Still, when I view my iCloud Mail, it's all around 5 hours slow. I've noticed the time difference in mail sent and received at work. With iCloud, I guess it makes no difference? And of course this causes issues with times of meeting set in my Calendar on iCloud and the corresponding alerts... all being a total waste of time!

In the web app, click on your name in the upper right hand corner. What time zone does it indicate?

A little confused on this.

"In the web app, click on your name in the upper right hand corner. What time zone does it indicate? "

If by web app you mean going to icloud.com and signing in, I don't see what you are trying to tell us. After clicking on my name all I see is "Account settings" and "sign out". Where am I going wrong?
Thanks
