Outlook 2007 Meeting Requests with Incorrect Times

One of my users has an issue when he sends or receives a meeting request.  The intended time will be for some time in the future, 1 day, 2 weeks... doesn't matter.  Anyway, the appointment is sent out for some obscure time during that day.  If the appointment is sent as Tuesday from 8-8:30am, it shows as (lets say you sent it Monday), it shows as Monday from 12:31-4:30pm.  

The isntall has the most resent SP and I have ran Outlook diagnostics (no errors).  The only thing that fixes it is taking it out of cached mode (which he must use!).  So that's not an option.  Any help out there?  Thanks so much!

Sorry, this is not an answer but I did want to apprise you of another person who is experiencing this same issue and has brought his issue to the Microsoft Technet boards. No resolution yet for this:


The bad news of what he said is that an uninstall and reinstall of Office 2007 with no service packs employed renders the issue extant. I'm wondering if an uninstall and reinstall followed by a new Windows profile (a new Outlook profile would be necessitated as well) might make OL 2007 more usable for what you need...

The post is rather recent, so hopefully MS will develop a hotfix for this after gathering the necessary information to develop a resolution.

I have been working with Microsoft for $300.  UGH.  Anyway, so far the tech found a hotfix... and we are seeing if that works.  But its pretty specific so I'm not going to provide the link as I wouldn't want someone to apply a hotfix to their system that doesn't work.  Another fix that was found in another article that seems to be working is to uninstall Outlook 2007 completely to get rid of SP2 and reinstall and just install SP1.  

Thanks for the help.
