Time zone calendar issue with an Exchange user

Hello.  We have a user who used to use his Exchange / Outlook 2010 email account in the CST time zone, and has recently retired and gone to the Pacific time zone.  He is still using his email, and is having a problem where in spite of changing his OS to the Pacific time zone (and verifying that Outlook shows him in the correct PST zone now), his calendar entries are still 2 hours off.  Not sure how to correct this.

If you run the following command from the Exchange mgmt. shell, what do you get in return?

Get-Mailbox -Identity "USERNAME"| Get-MailboxRegionalConfiguration | fl Identity,TimeZone

Open in new window

Is it the old time zone?

If so, try resetting it for him with this command...

Get-Mailbox -Identity "USERNAME" | Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Language en-US -TimeZone "Pacific Standard Time"

Open in new window


If that doesn't do it, then you may need to fiddle with the Outlook time zones settings.
