In Microsoft Outlook 97, if you change the Time Zone to one in the Southern Hemisphere, such as "(GMT+10)Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney," the resulting time displayed is off by one hour.


Southern Hemisphere time zones do not properly adjust for daylight savings time.


Choose another time zone in the Northern Hemisphere with the same GMT+ factor. For Australia, use "(GMT+10)Guam, Port Moresby, Vladivostok."


This issue is fixed in Outlook, version 8.01.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Calendar tab, click Time Zone.
  3. In the Current time zone list, click (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time.
  4. Click to select, "Adjust for daylight saving time."
  5. Click "Show an additional time zone" and on the Time zone list, click (GMT+10)Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney.
  6. Click to select, "Adjust for daylight saving time."
  7. Click OK and OK.

RESULT: The Australian time is off by one hour, depending on the time of year.
