    Default Calendar Requests Displaying Inncorrect Offset from GMT


    I had a general question about the date displayed for calendar invites.
    My timezone it PDT and is currently -7 from GMT. If I send an invite to someone,
    the timezone shows up as;

    Time: Thursday, March 13, 2008, 9:00:00 AM - 9:30:00 AM GMT -08:00 US/Canada Pacific

    Notice that is is "-08:00". I was wondering why it does not show it as my real offset from GMT.

    I have the exact same question. It seems that the timezone pop-up in both the the admin console and appointment config window shows standard time GMT offsets, but don't update (for me) now that we've been in daylight time (PST and PDT for us). Shouldn't Zimbra have respected the time change and show that in the GMT offsets?

    In other words, zimbraPrefTimeZoneId doesn't match the machine's values (PDT should be GMT -7):

    [root@hugo ~]# hwclock
    Tue 15 Jul 2008 03:40:53 PM PDT -0.861909 seconds
    [root@hugo ~]# date
    Tue Jul 15 15:40:59 PDT 2008
    [root@hugo ~]# su - zimbra
    [zimbra@hugo ~]$ zmprov gc default zimbraPrefTimeZoneId
    # name default
    zimbraPrefTimeZoneId: (GMT-08.00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
