Bug#512340: kdepim: appointments (calendar) sent by ms exchange servers do not provide the right time due to timezone calculation problems

Package: kdepim
Version: 4:3.5.9-5
Severity: wishlist


When receiving an appoint ment from an MS exchange server, kontact (or kmail) displays the wrong time in my message display box.

In the VCALENDAR entry, the exchange server sends in local time but prefaces 
the DTSTART line with a "timezone" spec.
The line looks like:
DTSTART;TZID=Eastern Standard Time:20090121T093000

This displays in kmail a meeting that starts at 14:30:00 ( not 9:30:00 EST)

This leads to confusion.
