Outlook 2010 not converting the times correctly when accepting appointments from different time zones.


This is what our end user in EST time zone sent in for assistance:

Subject: Fw: Wanted to confirm timing for Thursdays call - it's for 10am ET.
Importance: High

This is the second time that Outlook has not converted a meeting plan in Central time correctly to eastern time (both before and after daylight savings time); the first time made me late for a very important meeting. Can you please check into why this is happening and get it fixed.


This what the meeting organizer sent from CST time zone:

Subject: Wanted to confirm timing for Thursdays call - it's for 10am ET.

Just wanting to make sure you had the timing correct, when I received your acceptance it came through as 7-8am.

Timing: 9-10am CT / 10-11am ET

Users work for two different companies but both use Outlook 2010.

Have done some research but not a defitive fix.  

Any advice/suggestions?
