Question ID: 195283
Using a meeting request in Outlook, why would two of the many people who got the meeting request receive the scheduled time as 1 hour earlier then what I sent it out as? I.E. I have an 11:00 meeting that I sent a meeting request out to many people in using Outlook through our Exchange 5.5 server. Two people received the meeting time as 10:00. Could this be a time zone setting on their computer? The clocks all do say the same thing though, so it isn't the clock being wrong.

Greetings snevey_rt, I'm happy to help you out with the problem you are having with certain users having meeting requests marked as an hour off in Outlook. Most likely your problem is indeed related to a time zone setting or even more likely the setting for "daylight savings time" in the Date/Time area of the control panel on the affected computers. Please see the following article from Microsoft's Technet knowledgebase which describes how Regional and time settings affect meeting requests in Microsoft's Outlook application: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;186166& I would recommend that you go to START --> SETTINGS --> CONTROL PANEL --> DATE/TIME on the affected computers. (You can access the same settings by double-clicking on the time in the taskbar) Click on TIME ZONE and first make sure that the correct time zone is selected, then make sure that "Automatically adjust for daylight savings time" is checked. Once these settings are correct and/or match the other users, the problem should clear up. If not, please don't hesitate to "ask for clarification" and I'll be happy to help you troubleshoot the problem further. Note that existing appointments will not automatically change, only new ones will be affected. Sincerely, PWizard Search Strategy: outlook meeting requests one hour
