Email notification timezone



When we are getting email notifications they are coming in as GMT Standard Time when using the %datetime placeholder. It states that it uses the users timezone but the emails are actually going to a distribution list we have. How can I get this adjusted to display the correct time (timezone) EST?

the timezone of the PRTG user that created the notification is used. What timezone is that user in?

I just checked the user and they are in the EST timezone. If the user that created it had a different timezone when making the notification would that timezone stick or does it always check the user account.
