On a related matter, there were layout bugs in Excel 2008 that I found that existed for some time until a bug fix was finally issued - they called the bug fix Excel 2011 and it wasnt a free bug fix.
The workaround: Open up the Macs Date Time System Preference.
Open up Outlook and open up its Preferences Pane (see the image).
Change the Macs Time Zone (uncheck Set date and time automatically) to the same Default time zone as that found in Outlook - ideally, to the same time zone youre in at the time.
