hi,

???

so how on earth does a managers pa book him an appointment for a meeting in say montreal at 10am montreal time when she is based in london??

she will always end up booking things in london time and he will end up reading them in montreal time???

the manager looks at his client set to montreal time (ie iphone, ical) and sees an appointment for 10am (uk) how does he know its supposed to be in montreal time it will appear sometime during late afternoon...

this is crazy!

this doesn't work in any sensible way at all and it totally ignores the fact that outlook 2010 can handle the timezone info but the mapi connector is simply ignoring it.. this needs to be fixed..!

hi oliver/juergen/support,

tried the latest and greatest versions of the connector: 1.52.54.6/1.54.4.1

outlook 2010 on windows 7.

Non-recurrent events are scheduled using UTC time zone and will be displayed depending on the time zone configuration of the calendaring client.

and the results are the same, no timezone data is included in

here is an event booked for bahgdad and there is no sign that i can see to convey this information...

the connector simply isn't reporting the timezone as set within the event only that of the pc originating the event

and another event in kuwait timezone:

Hi,

please try the latest mapi-connector

1.54.3.5/1.54.3.5

as far as the version 1.54.3.5 of the serverside component of CGP has
still some bugs I suggest to use 1.54.4.1. There the bugs are fixed.

Kind regards,

Oliver Koch
