Exchange 2010 Read Receipts in UTC Time

We've had this issue with a few clients with Exchange 2010 where Read Receipts are returned in the UTC time-zone (GMT) instead of your Exchange server's time-zone as in previous versions of Exchange.

"Your message was read on Tuesday, November 09, 2010 10:02:00 AM UTC."

Microsoft say that this is by design because "the sending server doesn't know which time zone you're in", so it defaults to UTC. There is currently no way to change this, but there are rumours that it is scheduled to be changed in Exchange 2010 Update Rollup 5 (ETA=?)

Currently, the only option for now is to teach your users how to work out your time-zone from UTC...
