Date and time change when declining a meeting in Outlook 2000

When a meeting request is sent to a user and the user declines this is what is being returned to the sender of the meeting request:

Subject: Declined: Updated: (then subject of the meeting)
When: Wednesday, March 01, 2006 4:30 AM-5:30 AM (GMT -06:00) Central Time
(US & Canada)

The date and time are correct on the pc and within Outlook.  All users in the office use Outlook 2000 SP3 and are on XP Pro XP 2.

Thanks in advance for all advice.  Paul

Greetings, pbialecki !

Go to Control Panel > Regional Settings.  Make sure you are in the correct zone.

Is the original meeting request dated in March? The problem could be the date is wrong in the meeting request.  Check with the sender.

Best wishes!

Hi war1
The regional settings are correct.  After further talking with the user it
turns out that this is a recurring appt set for every two weeks and begun March 1, 2006.
So, it seems that when a decline is sent it runs home to mama, ie March 1, 2006.
Is this normal for Outlook 2000 to do this for recurring appts?

This is not an issue with Outlook 2003.  You may want to get the latest updates for Outlook 2000 from Microsoft Office Update site. It is up to service pack 3 and hotfixes.

Not yet.  It seems for some unknown reason that the decline reply goes to
the very first entry in the recurring appointments.  Paul
Paul, did you install service pack 3 for Outlook 2000?
pbialeckiAuthor Commented:
Yes, and SP 3 for Office XP.
Does the user have Outlook 2000 and 2002 running on the same machine?  If so, Outlook does not support such configuration and will conflict.
pbialeckiAuthor Commented:
No, Outlook 2000.  I am rechecking the office updates on the machine now.

Can you close this question.  Thank you.  Paul
