I had been struggling with creating an appointment reminder in MS Outlook to be attached to an email. It was for a event registration Intranet application I had been working on. Finally, after getting most of it working, the most annoying part. . .when the VCS calendar file was sent, the time on the appointment was off by 5-6 hours, depending on the event.

Finally, after searching for what seemed like forever, I found the answer.

Outlook calculates the appointment based on GMT and Tennessee is Eastern Time, so that means I need to add +6 to the time zone when making the appointment.

Just one of those weird problems you bang your head on for hours and you finally stumble across a solution that doesn’t even make sense.
