I checked the tools options > calendar options and time zone.  All looks correct with adjust for daylight saving time checked.  

When this user creates a calendar appointment and invites attendees to a meeting, the time stamp is correct.  If we go into the calendar and forward the appointment (let's say to send out a reminder) the time stamp from the paragraph added to the message below defaults to a 2003 day and time (ie..-----original appointment-----msg sent aug 1, 2003 when the meeting orignal invite was sent today).    It's the same day and time stamp on any calendar item we try to forward.  Wierd huh?
any help would be appreciated.

Hi, nyisls.

"the time stamp from the paragraph added to the message below defaults to a 2003 day and time"
Sorry, I don't understand what "time stamp" you're talking about.

Hi BDF,
If you create a calendar item.  Then right click the appointment in your calendar and choose forward.  In the Body of the Appointment you get this:  
 ----Original Appointment-----
From:
Sent: Day Aug 1, 2003
To:
Subject:
When:
Where:

The sent always defaults to the same day and 2003 instead of the time the original appointment was created.

Thanks,
NY

Ahh, the forwarded message header.  Got it.  That's by design.  Remember that the time stamp is reflecting the original item, not the forward.  The time stamp for the forward is the date and time of the message.  If forwarding set the time stamp to the date/time the item was forwarded, then how would the recipient know the date/time of the original item?

BDF,
Yes, that is correct it reflects the original item time stamp.  The issue is if you just created an item for today and then try to forward it, the time stamp defaults to aug 1 2003 for every calendar item created new or old.
I already tried reinsatlling office 2007 and also creating a new profile.
Thanks,
NY

Are these perhaps occurrences of a recurring appointment?

No it can be any appointment, 1 time or reoccuring, newly created or existing.

Could you create and save a test appointment to a .msg file and upload it here so I can have a look?
