How to include server time in server side reply rule 2013

Specs: Windows 10
I need to do a form that will reply with the servers time and date when the server rule based message is sent. In reply to an email. Time that the Email was received would be best, but time that Reply was sent is an acceptable workaround

I have managed to do something similar, but it is giving the time that I *saved* the message and not the time that the server *sends* the message.

"Your email was received at "&Date()&" "&Time()&”New Form”
Calculate this formula when I compose a new form

"Your email was received at "&Date()&" "&Time()&”Automatically”
Calculate this formula automatically

Both Rule Based Replies are giving the time that I hit save on the message that the rule sends

the date and time that the server generates the reply is critical because the date and time that the application was received
1: determines whether or not the applicant is placed on the wait list, and
2: their placement on the wait list

the server needs to reply to every message so it needs to be a server side rule

(A bit late to the party here...)

Since this needs to come from the server, the solution needs to be implemented at the server. Your userland software won't be able to do this unless the server already provides that information somehow.

the server always provides a date stamp to its replies
the server will be configured with either its time zone or GMT/ZULU
the server in question is at the same installation as the entity trying to do a date stamp for the automatic reply.

I was unable to provide solution was not in a timely manner, and the upshot from higher was that the applicants are adults, and they can do their own time conversion (based off the rule based reply that has the time that gets converted to the readers local time when it is displayed.)
