All-day event changing by 3 hours in same time zone


K

Kevin

My wife and I are both in Eastern Time zone (With Windows and Outlook
set up correctly). She sends me meeting invites from Outlook 2007. I
have Outlook 2003 SP3. All-day events come up in my calendar from
3:00 am through 3:00 am of the next day.

This is a different issue than the one frequently discussed, since we
are in the same time zone. Also, appintments that are NOT all-day
events show up in my calendar correctly.

Any ideas?

I suspect they're not in the same time zone. One of you appears to be using
Redmond time inadvertently, which is the default time zone chosen when
Windows is first configured. Check the time zone (and DST) both in Windows
and in Outlook's Calendar.

Brian- Thanks for the response. I checked time zones on both
computers (both Windows and Outlook time zones). All are on Eastern
and have the daylight savings field checked.

Also note that regular appoints come across correct. It's just the
all-day events that are off by 3 hours.

(The errant all-day event is sent from Outlook 2007 on Vista Home
Basic and received by Outlook 2003 SP3 on XP Professional)

Sorry, then. I can't explain it. It still seems like an Eastern TZ vs.
Pacific TZ issue to me, but if you've checked that, I don't know what else
to suggest. If I were in your shoes, I'd see if it made a difference in how
I sent the event - either as a Rich Text format message or as an iCalendar
file. In fact, I'd create an event on one PC, save it as an iCalendar file,
then examine the event in Notepad to see if anything looked odd. I'd them
transfer the iCalendar file to the other PC and add it to the calendar to
see what happened to it. I'd do this in both directions to see if it made
any difference.

Brian- Thanks for your response. The "Rich Text" versus iCalendar
didn't provide any clues. However, I realized a relevant pieces of
information that I had left out:

My company runs Exchange 2003, and they're on Pacific Time.

If my wife (not on Exchange) sends me an all-day event invite via my
Exchange email address, it comes across at 3:00AM - 3:00 AM.

However, if she sends me an all-day event invite to my personal
(fastmail.fm) account, it comes across correctly 12AM - 12 AM.

I logged into Web Outlook, and verified that my Exchange deault time
zone was Eastern.

I have no idea what the underlying problem is, but unless provides
some insight, I'll just have my wife send me invites using my personal
account instead of my Exchange Account.

Thanks for your help.
