Since we upgraded from Kerio Connect 9.2.3 to 9.2.5 patch 3, Kerio Connect detects our server timezone as "MST". But the correct timezone is CET. This used to be correct in 9.2.3.

This is on Windows Server 2012 R2.

From the debug log:

9.2.3:

Quote:
[24/Sep/2017 09:15:24][1028] Kerio Connect 9.2.3 build 2929
[24/Sep/2017 09:15:24][1028] Detected server time zone: "Amsterdam, Belgrade, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Stockholm"


9.2.5 patch 3:

Quote:
[29/Sep/2017 09:09:30][1480] Kerio Connect 9.2.5 patch 3 build 3336
[29/Sep/2017 09:09:30][1480] Detected server time zone: "MST"


While users can set the correct timezone in Webmail, their default is now wrong. Also, all-day appointments now show 8 hours off in Outlook 2016 (synced with ActiveSync).

Can anyone on Windows Server check in their debug log, if they see this as well? You see this when you restart the mailserver service.

Many thanks.

Same by me. Win 2012R2 server Kerio Connect version 9.2.4
Wrong timezone by users
All day events overlapping to 7:00 next day when created with Webmail.

Allday events created with outlook are fine.

I'm waiting for timewindow to downgrade to 9.2.3

Thanks for confirming the issue.

I have reverted back to 9.2.3 and all is fine again.

It seems that Kerio/GFI has messed up quite a lot with 9.2.4. Some of this has been fixed by 9.2.5 but not everything.

The Release Notes of 9.2.4 mention the following fix:

Quote:
- Kerio Connect in Perth timezone incorrectly detects timezone as


with obviously missing text after "as". It seems this change has messed up the time zone detection mechanism on Windows Servers.

We only use ActiveSync to Outlook 2016 and Webmail. We don't use the offline connector.
