Outlook and Automatic Day Light Saving DST settings, meetings set with incorrect times etc

Hello all,

I have a strange situation where a small number of users report that their Outlooks are playing up. When meetings are scheduled or rescheduled or moved they appear to be moving plus or minus one hour. I have already checked that the time zone is set correctly, DST is enabled for these users however this still appears to be an issue. What else can I check?
DC and Exchange DST and time zone set exactly the same as the client machines, Any ideas?

Cheers,
LVL 1

Apologies for the delay with getting back to you, after all this time Microsoft got back to me to tell me that this is software bug which cannot be resolved. A limitation of the Outlook software which sounds like they don't know how to resolve it. Basically the way to resolve this issue was a workaround, the meetings had to be recreated as the older ones could not be fixed.
In short: To resolve this we: recreated the appointments/meetings using scheduling assistant.

Do you get the same results when you have the user login to OWA or use Exchange Online mode?

Public Folders are in fact supported with Exchange 2010. As you had stated this might be another underlying issue. It is also possible that this calendar in Public Folders is also corrupt or something wrong with it.

Have you tried to create a new public folder calendar and then see if you run into the same issue?

This is happening across a number of public calendars at the moment, I have noticed that meeting time can change simply by renaming them or by dragging them to a different calendar..

Any reason why you are using Calendars in Public Folders? Why not create a shared mailbox or a shared calendar?

I am afraid it is out of my hands at the moment, these must have been imported from an old server before my involvement. I had to raise this with Microsoft who are also unsure what is causing this at the moment, I will update you on the situation as soon as I have heard back from them.
