Problkems with timing on meeting requests...


Brad Pears

This is kind of bizarre and hopefully easy to fix... We are using the
Outlook 2002 client with Exchange 2000.

One of our users who has been sending meeting requests to other users. has
just informed me that when the requested user gets the meeting request, the
requested times are exactly an hour LATER than what she had set the meeting
for. (the time on her machine is perfect)

Also, when someone sends her a meeting request (vice-versa), the times show
up on her Outlook client an hour EARLIER than they should be.

What can I look for to correct this issue? It's seems fine for everyone
else and she just received a new PC on which I installed a fresh copy of
Outlook 2002. It's probably been screwed up since then...




Have your coworker check what timezone her computer is currently configured to. (it sounds like it is set wrong) When she gets it set to the correct zone, it should fix her meeting requests.

The problem is, all the other items on her calendar will also adapt, so they may need to be adjusted.

I have the same issue as described here. The time zone is not the
problem here. I posted this in a separate thread, but I'll post here
also. You can see that the meeting request contains 2 different times.
When I accept, the sender gets a response saying I accepted an hour
earlier than the actual acceptance time.

"I have the same problem with one of my clients. The check box above
In the meeting request, the system generated text has the correct
time, while the "header" has the time plus one hour. I mean by this
that the body is like this...

When: June 30, 2004 5:00 PM-5:30 PM (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US &
Canada); Tijuana.

While the header says this...

Subject: Time test 2

When: June 30, 2004 6:00 PM-6:30 PM."
