Birthdays & Anniversarys - now spanning two days



Why are all the birthdays and anniversarys in my calendar now spanning two

I an recent trip I had some spare time on the airplane and deleted all the
birthdays and anniversarys and reoccurances of them. Then I reentered all
of them. They all then correctly displayed an all day event.

Today I booted up and they are back to spanning two days?!? Some of them
have a black clock icon when preveously I seem to remember a white one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I think its a time zone thing. Did you change time zones ???

I am having the same problem and hope than some Outlook guru can jump in

Unfortunately there's not an easy way around this. The following MSKB

Perhaps if you travel to the same time zones frequently, you can save a set
of events with the associated time zone in another Calendar folder, so you
can easily move them back and forth to your main Calendar when needed.
Dunno how much time you want to spend on this, as opposed to just leaving
the appointments as-is and temporarily dealing with the two-day span.
