After changing to DST time in Windows XP, Outlook 2007 calendar items span two days.

After changing to DST time in Windows XP, Outlook 2007 calendar items span two days. Looks only to be all day items, and it has caused them to span from 2am to 2am, one day to the next, or 1am to 1am, some are 12am to 12am (always spanning two days). If I double click on one of these calendar items to view their settings, it says the timezone is Baja California (GMT -8.00), but the computer is in Mountain Time (GMT -7.00).

Any idea what is going on here? I ran the "Microsoft Office Outlook Tool: Time Zone Data Update Tool for Microsoft Office Outlook 32-bit", but it didn't find any items that were marked with the incorrect time zone, which is very strange as I DO see calendar items in the wrong time zone. The only thing I can think is that it's skipping scanning those items due to some DST setting.

Any help is very appreciated, this has caused a great disruption to a very busy executive at a company who needs to get his calendar fixed as soon as humanly possible.

Thanks!

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Anyone know for certainty why this issue might occur? I've read it online in other locations, but there was never a definite reason I could fully understand.

Amit: Interesting fix, but the issue is only occurring for one person connected to that server.

Aravind: I have not yet tried to run the tool from the server, but it's worth trying. Any idea why the client side tool might not be seeing the objects with a different time zone?

Ah, an update. We have gone ahead and just changed everything back manually, and have instructed the client to change any future entries that are incorrect as well - his system timezone is now set properly.

Thank you all for your assistance, didn't get to try any server modifications in the end.

Manually had to go through entries and change them, due to urgency of the issue.
