    we are having a minor issue with a few users with thier calendar being
    off by an hour? these are all users with new machines, with all updates
    installed, and also using new blackberrys, also with the newest OS
    installed.

    i maintain a windows server update server in our domain, and push out
    all of the approved updates, so i know that they are installed.

    any ideas???

    ok, more info on this.

    i believe its the Outlook client on the end users machine, as i was able
    to log into his account in webmail and any new appointment i set up for
    next week was fine, except for when he look at it in his outlook it was
    behind by an hour(10am appointment show at 9am for him).

  2. Check the time zone and DSL setting on the computers.

  4. It's wrong somewhere - this is classic time zone setting problems. If it
    were a week or so later, I'd say one computer wasn't updated for the DST
    changes - if you have vista or win7, they have the new DST definitions (and
    you said newest os).

    its possible the blackberrys have the wrong time zone.

    January. i confirmed both DST settings in Outlook and the OS

  6. WinXP is not the newest OS... did you install the time zone updates for it?
    WinXP uses the old definitions, where DST starts in April, so there is a 3
    week period in March that the times are not right. The updates fix it.
