Help regarding TimeZone setting in RT 3.8.2

Hi,
In the Preferences > About Me page, there is a setting for Timezone.

Initially it was empty. I set it to US/Eastern .

Before setting the value to US/Eastern the dates in the ticket display , say the created date is Mon Jul 02 09:51:37 2007. After setting timezone to US/Eastern, it adjust for the time difference.

Has anyone used this setting and made it work?

Thanks
-Ashish

PS: In RT_SiteConfig the $Timezone is set to US/Pacific the timezone my server is on.

I am sorry for the typo!!!
After setting it to US/Eastern, the dates DO NOT adjust to show the time in the new time zone.

Thanks
