When you configure the Microsoft Exchange Connector for Novell GroupWise between a Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server computer and a Novell GroupWise server, appointments that are contained in e-mail messages that are sent by the Exchange 2000 computer may have the time of the appointment changed to one hour earlier.

For example, the appointment time in the e-mail message may be changed from 08:00 to 07:00.

Additionally, appointments that are contained in e-mail messages that are sent from the Novell GroupWise server to the Exchange 2000 computer that uses the Microsoft Exchange Connector for Novell GroupWise may have the appointment time changed to one hour later.

This problem typically occurs on or after the last Sunday in September.
