    Synchronizing EST - Daylight Savings Time (Outlook 2002)

    The most annoying thing has started to happen. Calendar events that once were one day events -- now span two. I know it has something to do with the time zone and daylight savings time. I've set the clock properly on my Office XP Professional computer -- but when I look in Outlook 2002 it is incorrect. If I change it here -- it changes the main computer time as well. Very frustrating. Essentially -- when the box for daylight savings time is selected on one or the other -- it messes the other up. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    It's an inescapable flaw in Outlook's handling of all-day events. See <!mskb=281035>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 281035<!/mskb>, which only mentions time zone changes, but is also true for DST changes. Annoys me too; it's a lousy way to implement all-day events. If you want to be compulsive, go to all your all-day events that occur during DST and reset them. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks John -- yes, I went back and reset them. And actually -- I changed my computer settings so it would NOT adjust for daylight savings time. I can go do that manually like I do all the other clocks in the house and thus avoid this issue. Thank you!
