I think it only works in the index, but don't quote me on this.  Perhaps 
read the configuration help for the local time option, the in-built help is 
generally very good.

Have a look in the help for the reply lead-in stuff and see if there are 
tokens for the local time.  Personally I think it's more accurate to use 
the sender's time but I guess that's a matter of preference.
