Are you sure you have the correct time zone on your computers clock?  If you do try changing it and see if you still get the error.

Are you using Outlook or Entourage?

Have you checked both the System timezone (in the Date & Time System Preferences pane) and the Outlook/Entourage timezone?

Had a customer with this problem last week because we had a diiferent end time to DST this year here in Aus, and I had to hack the Entourage timezone file. The timezone is set in Entourage in the Preferences - Under the General Preferneces:Calendar section, you can choose your timezone there. Not sure about Outlook if that's what you're using.

Microsoft released patches for its Windows-based products for timezone issues recently, but they didn't realease one for their Mac-based products, and when Apple released their patch for the OS, it then put things out of whack with MS's (incorrect) timezones.

Hope that's of use

Thanks for your help, Sean.  We have determined that this was indeed a problem that was patched by Micrsoft for Windows and not for Mac.  

So sorry that I didn't get you acknowledged until now!!

Thanks again,
