I have a script that runs through a database of ours that pulls meetings and creates a meeting request in code that is sent out through exchange 2007.




everything seems to be working correctly except recurring meetings. Whenever the script creates a recurring meeting, the times are off by 4 hours for the attendees only. The room resource has the time correct. One time only meetings do not have this issue.




Recurring meetings do show up on the calendar correctly, meaning the day is correct and recurs correctly but time is current_time_zone + 4 so a 7am meeting shows as 11am for the attendees.








the code it creating an ICS file and is sent in an email to the attendess and what not.




All the timezones are the same between the attendess, room resource, and exchange itself. I have no idea what is causing this.




Exchange 2007 and office 2007/2010. Code is written in ASP.Net 3.5

As in 'new since the start of dst'? Or new as of some recent update?

It sounds like the singles have properly identified time & time zone but the recurring are using GMT, however its identified as ET, so the time is 4 hrs ahead. It's odd that its correct on the resource but not to invitees - on the otherhand, the Time Zones feature in outlook 2007 and 2010 could be behind the problem.

How are you viewing the resource room calendar? Does OWA also have the wrong time? Is the time zone correct on an open appointment?

Have you compared the ics files to see how they are formatted?

so the script makes the meeting invite, the resource room auto accepts the meeting. I have access to the meeting room's everything.




if I bring up my calendar and the room's and look, the times will be different. If I log into the resource box directly through OWA, it also has the correct time.




Now, in the script, the only difference between the recurring and non-recurring is a line similar to this.




"RRULE:FREQ=WEEKLY;UNTIL=SOMEDATE;BYDAY=TH;INTERVAL=1;WKST=SU"




Which again, works just fine because the meeting will recurr as it should just for me, as the attendee, I am 11am and not 7am.




All the timezones are EST no matter where I look (outlook, OWA, web, etc)

I have tried to force the time zone in the ICS but it either throws everything off or just doesn't work at all.
