Very Strange Incorrect Time Issue

    Trophy Points:
    For some time now my server (running FreeBSD 4.8) has been having rather odd issues with the time. When I check my mail through IMAP in Mac Mail it always shows up 4 hours behind the correct time (my server is the same time zone as I am in). For example, if I send an email at 10:43 AM it will show up in my email box that it was sent at 2:43 PM.

    I also wrote a PHP script that I load in my browser and set it to auto refresh every 10 seconds so I can monitor the time. Every once in a while the time will show 4 hours ahead but the problem with my mail showing it arrived 4 hours laster always exists.

    Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I checked the time on the server in SSH by entering 'date' when the incorrect time was showing up in my PHP script and it was correct. I cannot figure out why it's doing this and I've also tried resetting the time on the server.
