I have now relocated to from Edmonton Canada to Houston I adjusted my laptop clock to from Mountian time to Central time.  

Problem is, all of my 1 day events are shifted from the start day at 1AM to the following day at 1AM.

This is a problem with a lot of my events as I have set up Holidays and other multi-day events on my calendar that are a mess.

For now, I have switched back to Mountain time, any ideas of how to change with out screwing up so many full day events?

Greetings, rorybrady !

Make sure you have the latest update for your version of Outlook. Outlook 2003 is up to service pack 2 and hotfixes.

Crossing time zone is a problem with Outlook appointments and calendar.  Unless you want stay with the old setup, the calendar events will be off.  You will need to reset them manually.

Best wishes!

What do you mean by "stay with the old setup" and "the calendar events will be off"?

Have you also changed the "time zone" setting within Outlook's calendar options?

Stay with Mountain time.  If you go to Central time, calendar events will be incorrect.
