Conclusion

Congratulations! You have changed your Email Account’s Time Zone using three different Webmail clients: Roundcube, Horde, SquirrelMail. Keep in mind that by doing the changes, they are only applied for the particular email account, so if you wish for all your email accounts to have a different time zone, you have to set it separately for every one of them.
