I just ran the Outlook DST patch and several of my "ALL DAY" apts. suddenly spanned TWO DAYS!
If I unchecked 'all day event', I noticed some of the events had 11pm. When I re-checked 'all day', it then correctly showed on one day.
I am using outlook 2003, xp sp2 against a pop3 account ( NO EXCHANGE SERVER).
I have an Axim Pocket PC using activesync 3.8. I have previously used a tool to sync to my google calendar. When I copied back the .pst file (from before my install of the DST patch), one of the apts. then showed up correctly as a single day, but some other of the apts remained as two days (which really shocked me).
So, here's my question:
Based on my bad experience with the Outlook DST patch, I'm thinking that the cure might be worse than the disease.
What happens if I don't install the Outlook DST patch for the 5 Execs I support. Is the scope of the problem only apts. during that 3 week period that were previously scheduled? Will new apts. be ok once the system time automatically changes as a result of the OS DST patch?
If I do run the patch, and have the instruct the execs to verify their apt's anyway, why not avoid installing and ask them to do the same thing?
