I have it in and have had it for some time.

No. It is not showing your system time.  It is showing the time where the 
writer of the email you are reading resides, though I can't remember whether 
it adjusts for summer time.

You, so far as I can tell from your emails, are at GMT -4.  The clock at the 
top right of this message window therefore ought to be 4 hours ahead of your 
system time, since I am currently at GMT.

So KMail's clock isn't off by anything, though edst (Eastern Daylight Savings 
Time) may have had some effect.  As I said, I can't remember whether it 
adjusts for summer time.
