    To reproduce you can use the demo http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#ScheduleView/Ical and then click Export. Open the created file and look for lines starting with DTSTART or DTEND. You will see something like this

    DTSTART;TZID=W. Europe Standard Time:20160509T050000Z
    DTEND;TZID=W. Europe Standard Time:20160509T060000Z

    According to RFC5545 Section 3.3.5 https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5545#section-3.3.5

    >> The "TZID" property parameter MUST NOT be applied to DATE-TIME properties whose time values are specified in UTC.

    Some programs (e.g. Outlook) ignore in this case the Z at the end of the timestamp and treat it as something else. After manually removing the TZID part everything is fine.

    Please fix the exporter.
