someone has answered to my whining, in 2.3.15 all-day-events are synced
correctly with EAS.
Interesting fact: the second issue I have/had (the shifting, now by 1 hour
forward!) can be narrowed down to events that are recurring for quite some
time, like my parents' birthdays which I saved with their birth date as
starting point. This behaviour is due to the appointment taking place before
Germany and Austria (and possibly others I have not checked) brought in the
daylight saving time in 1980. So: not a bug but a feature, as all events that
old now respect the timeshift by one hour. This is done by Outlook on the
client with taking time zone settings into account.
