Those mailreaders already have a bug if they do that. RFC 822 only allowed a small subset of timezone abbreviations (US timezones and GMT, plus single character Milatary designations that I've never seen in real use), and its successor RFC 2822 makes even these obsolete, requiring numeric timezone specifiers in all cases.
