Calendar Conversion from Outlook to Notes did not work properly

I converted an Outlook calendar to Notes but when I open it some times are off. For example, if I have a meeting for several days, it puts the first day correct, but it adds an extra day at the end. If I have a reoccurring event, it is always 1 hour behind. If I have an appointment for a certain time in a day only, that is correct.
Does it make any sense? Does anyone know what can be wrong?
Thanks!

What conversion tool did you use to import the appointments?

Also, please, tell us your server release/client release, etc...

I used Transend. Notes is 7.0.3 and Outlook 2003. I am guessing it has to do with DST but don't know how to o around it. What's funny is that appointments in January and February are fine, but starting in March they are all off.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That's clearly a DST problem that's handled differently in each client. Would it be possible to use a different transport vehicle, like a textfile, csv, or Excel, so you can adapt the dates more easily?

It is going to be messy. since all the DST's need to be properly updated and able to work nicely together.

I would contact transend about this.

I hope this helps !
