We are using Outlook97 on Windows95 with MS Exchange as server.
The Windows95 timezone is also setup the same on every client PC.
Although the Timezones in Tools, Options, Calendar, Timezones... are setup the same for every user, there is one user that sees the Appointment hours one hour different than all the others.
When I set the Outlook timezone one hour different than all the others, the specific users sees the Appointment hours the same as the others.
What is going on here ?

PatWeyn,

I had the same surprise last week! I think I have understood what happened, but it not easy to explain:

First, it seems that Outlook stores the time for appointments in GMT time. If you are in Europe and are using the automatic daylight change, then if you schedule an appointent for a date within the period where the time will be changed, it stores it using the new time internally: no problem on the local PC, but if the others PCs have a different settings it may look wrong.

Also, you should check if the daylight saving week-end was last week for the wrong PC. This was the case for the first releases of W95, but then the EU decided to change from the last wee-end of September to the lst week-end of October. During one months, all my appointments are postponed by one hour when I looked from another PC.

What I did is to remove the automatic daylight saving flag, and recheck my appointments for October one by one ...

Hope this help,

Steve.

Steve,

That is a good explanation and probably what happened on our site.  Thank you for the tips.

How can I give the points, Steve ?

We had the same problem and tried to find another solution but it seems there is none. I tried to find patches but couldn't find any. Another solution is what we did, upgrade to Win95 OSR2
(4.00.950B). It's the PAN European Version with USB support.
