Ok, but how to use then the calendar in conjunction to OL and mobile 
In Outlook and mobile Devices the times are the same but on Webcal -2h..
Immagine someone is abroad and enters his new events in Web, when he 
comes back to his office PC he opens his OL an all the times are 
completely wrong since the timediffs.
Probably I don't understand the meaning of your comment.

Sorry, but I can't understand this behavior..?
Any further Informations for me?
