Lotus Notes 8.5 Is Using Obselete Timezone codes

As part of this week’s email debacle, I had to manually forward a bunch of meeting requests from my LN account to my Outlook account.

In doing this, I discovered a time-zone abbreviation that not even timeanddate.com, my go-to for time-zone converting, recognised.

Some Google-Fu turned up this page from IBM, which describes these time-zones. The search also turned up this Bugzilla bug report, wherein I learnt:

RFC 2822 clearly says time zone like ZE5B is obsolete

Which should come as no surprise.
