Outlook Meeting Request from Win Mobile shows meeting time as current time


P

I can't figure this out, although all the research I've done on the internet
shows some other people have a similar problem (with no solution we could
find). When sending a meeting request via email (doesn't matter which;
activesync, pop mail, etc.) the invitation shows up in Outlook (tried both
2003 and 2007---same result) with the "when" field populated with the
current computer time and date or, sometimes, with the date and time the
message was sent. I do not have this problem sending a meeting request from
the desktop computer using Oulook---works fine. In the incorrect message
from WIndows Mobile (have tried WM5, WM6 on 2 different devices--same
result) clicking on the "calendar" icon at the top of the message in Outlook
will bring you to the correct time and date for the meeting. It is only the
subject lines (where a recipient will likely accept/decline a meeting) that
are wrong. This reproduces on my system (and on at least two others remote
to me I've tried) 100% of the time. Others seem to be able to schedule a
meeting and invite attendees from a Pocket PC without issue. I have no idea
what is wrong with mine. I have a brand-new Verizon XV6800 with WM6 on it
and it still does this. I am totally at a loss and have no idea where to ask
this other than this newsgroup. No MVP has ever answered this question nor
even directed any of the other persons reporting this behaviour in the right
direction. Based on this, I think this must be some kind of isolated problem
with a setup or confguration, but I don't know how. It is not a setup issue
on the desktop, as this happens on multiple PCs and other peoples PCs, too.
It is not particular to a corrupt handset, ans I flashed my ROM and started
over on my older XV6700 (same issue) and now have a new XV6800 that is
"stock" from Verizon--no messing around on my end at all. Any help or
suggestions would be appreciated, since at this point I can't use the PPC to
schedule meetings without really confusing all the invitees with wrong
invitations.
I am cross-posting this on Outlook NG because on my Office 2007/Vista PCs,
the "when" field seems to update with the current computer time (to the next
half hour). So, if it is 7:50AM on Monday (the meeting invitation is for 10
on Tuesday), my invitation will show (sent one to myself to test) the
meeting for 8:00 on Monday. At 8:20 the meeting "when" field updates to 8:30
on that same invitation email. This is on my own PC--very strange.

Seems to be a time zone issue to me. Ask in microsoft.public.pocketpc and
microsoft.public.pocketpc.activesync. The interaction between a PDA and
Outlook is completely in the "hands" or the sync software.

Thanks, but that is not likely it. I can send (this is what I usually do) a
meeting invitation via email from the mobile device over the air. This does
not involve activesync (or WMDC in my case--Vista). It is not a time zone
issue, at least not an obvious one, like being off a set number of hours.
The "when" line of the invitation subject varies as to time the message is
sent, rounding up to the nearest half-hour. WHy I suspect something in
Outlook is that on my own PC, an invitation sent to myself from the phone
(again, not using activesync) will seem to update itself to the current time
and date as I look at it. It is like a "Word" date field that auto-updates
to current--at least that is how it appears. The actual calendar appointment
contained inside the invitation seems correct, however. The subject line
with "date, time" of meeting and the calendar item do not agree. Others have
reported this same issue and it has been guessed it may be an Exchange
issue. I think the common ground is somewhere in Pocket Outlook or Outlook.
Since it does not seem to happen to everyone, I am guessing it has to do
with how things are set up on the various computers. I had thought it might
be something Verizon did transmitting email over the air, but this exact
same thing happens when I use WMDC and sync my "inbox" so the mail is sent
when I connect to the main PC via regular Outlook. Someday, Microsoft is
going to find out there is a bug in there somewhere. I'm guessing on the
Pocket PC end the invitation is somehow not the same as the one sent by
"real" Outlook.

Hi,

I am having exactly the same problem and although I've done a lot of research in the internet I could not find any solution.
Is it possible that any virus scanner is causing this problem?
Anybody here who can help on this matter? Thx in advance
