So does the site simply say "Mountain Time," or does it say

I just now revisited the Web page for scheduling a phone
appointment. It says "Mountain Time", not "Mountain Standard
Time". Selecting an icon adjacent to that displays a tooltip that
explains the indicated time zone.  The tooltip says: "The time zone
is based on your computer system's clock."  You can view all that
at <http://www.rossde.com/test/timezone-1.jpg>.

I then launched Microsoft's Data and Time window.  It says that my
time zone is "(UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)".  You can
view that at <http://www.rossde.com/test/timezone-2.jpg>.

All this tells me that the problem is at Vanguard.

Agreed. Either they're misreading your system's clock, or they're
miscalculating.

But I'm curious how your system can say "(UTC-08:00)" while your
message header says "Date: Tue, 8 Aug 2017 09:28:40 -0700." Could
Vanguard be seeing that "-0700" instead of "(UTC-08:00)"? If so,
why?

P.S. I'm seeing the same thing with my Win7 Pro SP1 and SM 2.46: My system clock reports "(UTC-0500) Eastern Time (US & Canada)," but the header of my previous message reports "Date: Tue, 8 Aug 2017 13:32:27 -0400." Somehow SeaMonkey doesn't know I'm on Daylight Time.
