Running SBS 2008 which has exchange 2007. There are 3 servers.
SBS 2008
Server 2000 (data server) no roles
Server 2000 (software server) no roles

The 2 other serves pull their time from the SBS 2008 server perfectly. The date, time and time zone are set correctly on the SBS 2008 server. However, every email and calendar item sent out states that it was sent out 1 hour later than it was actually sent out. For example. if I send and email and sent it to you at 1pm, when you get it it will show that it was sent at 3pm. Any ideas?

Have your Outlook clients been patched for DST?  This sounds like a DST issue.

Are you talking about the DST patch from 2000? All computers are up to date. What does the time stamp, the exchange or the individual client machines? Because we didn't have this problem until upgrading our server to exchange 2007

When did you upgrade your server?  What did you upgrade from?  Are these new appointments, or old appointments?  Are they all appointments, some appointments, appointments accepted from outside sources?

It is a brand new domain. Replaced The Domain server. New domain name etc. Added all computers and servers to this new domain. The SBS 2008 was a new install. Once everthing was setup working perfectly. We imported all the users PST files. Still everything is fine. All newly created emails and newly created calendar items show a date 1 hour later than when created. Again, I just verified the times zone and date and time settings are correct. I did a net time and it is correct.

The time stamp can be affected by numerous things.  For instance, if Outlook isn't patched but the server is, it will show wrong.  If Outlook is patched but the server isn't, it will show wrong.  I have a situation here where we have an Exchange 2000 server still, which there is no patch for.  The users on that machine create appointments that look right to them, but to others on the Ex2k3 box they're off by an hour.  Basically, if there's just one thing out of sync, it will look wrong.  How and where it looks wrong will depend on where the problem is.

So, you may have done all of this, but here's a list of things that need patching anyway.

Client workstations
Email client
Email server OS
Email server
PDAs
Email integration servers (Fax, Blackberry, etc.) OS and software

Here's some info on SBS 2008 and DST.

After adjusting the time zone it didn't take affect for weeks until I rebooted the server. Problem solved.
