Outlook / Exchange 2003 - Wrong Bank Holidays

Posted on 2011-09-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have noticed that outlook often has wrong holiday dates for example Bank holidays and the Royal wedding but also the Queens Jubille next year is also not present,

Is there a way globally of adding a bank holiday date without having to send a .hol file to all users who either forget or call me as they are unsure what to do with it?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Thanks for that, however this file had not added the bank holidays for the June BH weekend, It says this has been applied before which makes sense as I did try this abotu 3 months ago so this must be the same exe.
