So now FreeBSD knows what time zone you want it to be in, this doesn't
mean the hardware knows what time it is.

man date

will show you how to set the time.  Or you can get ntp running and wait
until it syncs the time.

Really?  Looks like you sent your mail at 6:57pm EDT?????   As a matter
of fact, it is 7:07pm EDT as I write this.

man ntpq

and try the "peers" command in ntpq to see what ntp thinks is happening.
 Look at the ntp.conf file to see if it is sensible.
