Default Outlook & Blackberry Screwing Up my appointments

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I'm a newbie here. I've searched & couldn't find an answer to this very frustrating issue that has come up in the last month. I'll try to be clear on what the issue is:

Outlook has "moved" my annual re-occurring appointments by one day. For example - my anniversary is 09/12/98. Outlook is now showing the appointment as "Occurs every 09/11/98 effective 09/12/98". On my calendar the all-day appointment shows up on the 11th not the 12th.

My Blackberry (8800) shows the appointment correctly.

Here's what I've tried:
1) checking my time zones. They are all set to EST (computer, Outlook & BB) & "adjust for daylight savings" is checked
2) deleting the appointments in Outlook & resyncing
3) going through & manually updating each appointment (that was a whip) only to have the issue happen again upon the next BB sync
4) installed the 2007 DST Patch to my Blackberry
5) searched every freakin' Outlook / BB forum I can find

I'm not on an enterprise server. I'm using BB Desktop Manager v. 4.2.2.14 (I downgraded b/c the newer versions were taking forever to sync up). Before I throw my stupid laptop & blackberry out the window can someone please HELP me?!?

Thanks,
David

There is a dst patch for XP too if you are running that? And what version of DM were you having problems with?

Also if all your appointments are on Outlook, just use DM and clear out the calendar and then re-sync your BB.

zocster - I'm using Desktop Manager v. 4.2.2.14

zerog46 - the appointments are correct on my blackberry, incorrect in Outlook - so if I delete them out of DM won't it import them incorrectly from Outlook?
