I have one explanation for your Dec. 8 response that reached you Dec. 7.
My daughter is on a service that is on UT, so I regularly get next day
mail. Any connection to local time is arbitrary.

EST 6:26 would be the same as CST 5:26. EDT and CDT would match the same
way. Someone reported Monday 8th instead of Sunday 7th. But my email
directly back to me said Sunday 7th. Seems like email through the web
server to the list, and back, said Dec 8.

This was sent via browser. So if the server was not in central time my
laptop could say one time but the web server could say something else.
But why would one recipient see Dec 7 and another Dec 8th ? As the
originating time, I mean.
Of course receipt itself could be at different times.

A mystery! Very interesting. I am not at all sure I understand how web
mail works.
