E-mail trigger delay - Time Zone (CET) ahead of System Time (UTC)



We have developed a Z program which triggers e-mail whenever the critical System / Interface user id gets locked in the SAP Netweaver System. However, the e-mail is generated by the program in the Time Zone which is in CET and sits in t-code SOST and is sent to our mailbox in System Time which is in UTC (GMT) which is currently 2 hours behind. Hence, there is a delay of 2 hours for generated e-mail alert to be sent to our mail box. Is there any process to avoid this delay?

In the test system manually we can reduce the wait time by 2 hours in t-code SOST and then the mail gets triggered immediately. But can this be achieved programmatically so that the time in which e-mail gets generated always displays the system time in t-code SOST. Or, is there is a configuration where the e-mail is sent to our mail box from t-code SOST in Time Zone (CET) itself and not wait till the displayed time reaches System Time (UTC).

Thank you very much for your earliest response.
