Based on the fact that your native timezone is GMT +3 (at least that's 
what's in your email's date: header) I suspect that one of the systems is 
showing the time in GMT, and the other is your local time.

I believe that snort itself logs its alerts in GMT not local time, this way 
if you have multiple sensors across multiple time zones (big network) you 
can correctly correlate events, but I could be wrong.. check the docs.
