    Outlook 2003 (2003)

    i've been using Outlook 2003 for about a month now. A friend notified me that the date of my emails was off by about 15 days. My system clock and date are synchronized several times a day, so i know that's correct. For example, today is the 16th but Outlook thinks it's the 1 of Dec. Any ideas on how to correct this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thnx in advance. nJOY! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    If you send yourself a test message, do you get the same results? Perhaps the server is time stamping them and its date is incorrect.

    Yes, the time and date off on a test message, but i don't think it's the time server. When i click the "today" it brings up Dec.1.

    Do you have correct readings under Tools | Options | Preferences tab | Calendar Options | Time Zone, including the Current Time box?

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>Beats me. Please try this 'fallback' procedure, in case it helps.

    Close Outlook and all Outlook windows (separate calendars, messages, tasks, etc.) From the command line restart Outlook with the following two switches, and the path edited to suit your installation:

    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice 10OUTLOOK.EXE" /cleanreminders /cleanfreebusy

    Post back either way, if you still don't get this fixed, or advise how you get it fixed.

    Re: Outlook 2003 (2003)

    The problem, uh, corrected itself, sort of. A few other anomalies were occuring, so i shut the box down, cleared the cmos, and set it up again. Opening Outlook today and, bingo, Dec.17. i've seen supposedly impossible things happen before when troubleshooting computers. Guess i'll add this one to the list.
    Thnx for your help. Happy Holidays!
