Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) time zone tables cannot be automatically updated from the registry values of the Windows operating system on Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.
Exchange Server 2003 uses hard-coded tables to store the time zone information. These static tables are used across the different components of Exchange Server 2003. In the past, if the definition for an existing time zone had to be changed, a change had to be made to the hard-coded time zone tables in CDO, and then a CDO hotfix had to be released. After you install the hotfix in this article, CDO time zone values will be read dynamically from Windows time zone information during a service restart. A CDO hotfix is released only if a new time zone must be added to the daylight saving time definitions.
A supported feature that modifies the default behavior of the product is available from Microsoft. However, this feature is intended to modify only the behavior that this article describes. Apply this feature only to systems that specifically require it. This feature might receive additional testing. Therefore, if the system is not severely affected by the lack of this feature, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this feature.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request.

Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the feature is available. If you do not see your language, it is because the feature is not available for that language.
This hotfix requires Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 to be installed on the server because of file dependencies.
