- A Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 mailbox user receives a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) message that contains a recurring iCalendar message part.
- The recurring iCalendar message part contains an excepted occurrence that is defined by the EXDATE property.
- The DTSTART property and the EXDATE property are in different time zones.
For example, you create the following Recurring Rule (RRULE)-based appointment. The properties in this appointment have the following characteristics:
- The DTSTART property uses the "Central Europe Standard Time" time zone.
- The first EXDATE property uses the same time zone as the DTSTART property (through the omission of a specific time zone).
- The second EXDATE property uses the "Zulu" time zone (denoted by the "Z" suffix).
- The third EXDATE property uses the "Pacific Standard Time" time zone.
DTSTART;TZID=Central Europe Standard Time:20091212T104700
DTEND;TZID=Central Europe Standard Time:20091212T111700
EXDATE;TZID=Pacific Standard Time:20100712T004700,20100912T004700
In this example, when you view the calendar instances from OWA, Outlook 2007, or Outlook 2010, you see that the EXDATE instances in which the DTSTART property and the EXDATE properties are in different time zones are not deleted. However, all the EXDATE instances should be deleted.
