Outlook 2010 meeting times are wrong

I have a client that uses Exchange 2003 on SBS.  Most of the clients are Outlook 2003 and there is no issue with them.  However, I have upgraded 2 of the clients to Outlook 2010 and I have an issue with both of them.  

If they receive a meeting request for some time in the future, say next Thursday at 10 am, the calendar blocks out all the time from when the request was received until the end of the meeting next week.  

This seems to happen no matter who sends the request.

After searching the knowledgebase, I tried setting the Outlook client to online instead of cached mode.  This solves the problem, but by default all my users run cached.  This client has a large mailbox so online takes longer to startup.  

I renamed the .ost and recreated it, but the issue returned.

have you checked the actual request xml or calendar file to confirm that it is correct?

Yes, I've examined the actual files.  If I send a test meeting request to several people in several companies, the only ones that are wrong are the ones at this particular company and only on workstations with Outlook 2010.  Other workstations at this company with a 2003 version of Outlook are fine.

I don't have solution for you but I think you should dig around SBS 2003, and not Outlook 2010. SBS/Exchange 2003 is pretty old and it could have some unexpected behaviour with recent Outlook clients. You could try updating the server to the latest Service Pack for example if it’s not done yet.

As a workaround you could try Outlook 2007. There is actually no great difference between Office 2007 and 2010 except for Outlook if used with Exchange 2010 or 2013.

I would also recommend upgrading the server: Microsoft’s End-of-Life for the latest service pack of Exchange 2003 is in April 2014.

Well, I was hoping for something more definitive, but I do think the problem lies with Exchange.  If I find something by digging around, I'll post it.

Thanks
