Basically, emails are normally sorted by the local received date &
time for you to easily view the latest new emails as they are shown at
the top of the list. This helps if you have a to-do system where you
need to know when you received the email. You might miss an email that
is dated earlier since it’s automatically moved down the list, while
an email dated later would cause it to constantly appear at the top of
the list.

Problems can arise if the time and date setting on your computer are
wrong or if you have the wrong time zone setting. To add to the
confusion, some webmail systems use the time zone setting in your
online account details.

Similarly, the time and date setting could be wrong on the sender
computer.     Spam emails sometimes do this deliberately.

But in this case, John is in the Philippines and your email system is
displaying his local sender time instead of the time you received the

So you just have to be prepared to answer emails before you have
received them and also answer emails many hours old that you have
just received.  :)
