Office 365: Wrong time zone in e-mail and calendar

E-mails are sent with timestamp for the wrong time zone or calendar appointments are for a different time zone


When Office 365 accounts are first set up, users are prompted to select a time zone. This step is often missed and some users end up with the wrong time zone, usually Reykjavik/Monrovia (the default). This is easily fixed.

Change the time zone to the correct setting in Outlook Web App

  1. Sign in to Outlook Web App, click Settings (), and then click Options.  If you do not see Options, click on Mail in Your app settings at the bottom.
  2. In the left navigation pane, click General, and then click Region and time zone
  3. In the Current time zone box, click the arrow, and then click the correct time zone setting.
  4. Click Save.
