Note that if you have created non-recurring appointments on your Calendar since you updated your Windows time zones, you should click the Details button once the tool has reported that its scan is complete and uncheck any such appointments before continuing. Additionally, after running the tool, make sure to go to your calendar and review your calendar items to ensure that they appear at the correct times.

This is the standalone mailbox tool…and I’m not sure I understand what it’s doing?

  1. I ran this utility without problems. The biggest problem I see for an Exchange administrator is getting their users to run this utility and approve the changes. Evidently Microsoft tried to force their users to run it back in January and they declined. Wow, I guess it is time to check the Koolaid. It appears to have lost some its kick.
