Use local time-zone in email-search-fliter command

We have to manually calculate the timezone difference before input into the email search filter.

Is it possible to give choose-timezone options or use-local-time zone option for this command?

It is really inconvented to calculate timezone difference everytime by hand.


Thanks!

    Ge Yu Jiang Liu clarified by e-mail:

    The command should accept dates from a specified timezone and convert them to UTC, query the e-mail server, then convert the returned dates to the specified timezone. Otherwise, the burden of specifying correct UTC dates falls to the developer, which needs to manually calculate them.
    As a developer, I want to specify dates in my timezone regardless of whether the server uses UTC dates.

    The dates filter use UTC time, so you need to provide a UTC date in the filter.
    Can you please elaborate more on the scenario? Which e-mail provider are you reading e-mails from? Are you using IMAP protocol?
