    One other quick question,

    What is the c1e0 at the end of the whenwritten field in headers.dat?

    WhenWritten: 20190807093601-0700 c1e0

    I'm looking to get the correct Timezone for exported messages, and figure
    this header is how.

    It's a location-based timezone. It contains the same details as the "-0700" UTC offset, but can be more unique (and specific) when there are multiple time zones with the same UTC offset. See https://synchro.net/docs/smb.html#Data%20types if you want more details.

    If you just want the UTC offset, the ISO date/time string has it too.

    I was more concerned about the messages I'm sending out to dovenet, as I
    logged into Freeway, and it showed my messages as being from the future
    (my local time with a UTC offset - which should be +10:00)

    So I was thinking I should set the WhenWritten field (and when imported/exported while at it) but will synchronet be happy with just the
    ISO date/time or will i need to implement that location based timezone
    bit on the end too?

    I'm looking at: http://wiki.synchro.net/ref:qwk

    The SMB/hex timezone representation is optional. It's only used (and override the UTC offset provided in the ISO date/time) if it's present.
