Try going into OPTIONS- DATE AND TIME- AND SET date time source to network.
Are your PC and BBdevice on the same time?
Third thing is to make sure both calenders have the same start of day.
On the BB go to CALENDER -OPTIONS-GENERAL OPTIONS make sure the options listed mactch those in Outlook.
Please let me know!

I ended up figuring out the problem, looked on one of the Smartphone sites. A user of the treo was having similiar problem with Outlook 2007 and I tried what he did and it worked.
Here is the explaination that I also posted on Blackberry Forums:
Pretty much what you need to do is, for all the recurring appointments in Outlook 2007, open them up and edit them.
So here are the steps:
1. Double click on the recurring meeting.
2. Choose "Open the series"
3. Then, right next to "Recurrence" you will see "Time Zones", click on this.
4. After you click on "Time Zones", double click on recurrence and you will see your time zone there.
5. After you do this, click "Ok" and then click Save & Close.
After you do this for all your recurring appointments, trying syncing with your blackberry again, and it will update with the correct time.
I literally spend 5 hours trying to figure this problem out and reading multiple forums, even the Smartphone forums and someone was having this same problem there. This is what they did and I decided to try it and it worked!
So, I guess the problem is with Outlook 2007 and not with Blackberry. This problem was only happening to me for recurring meetings that someone had sent me, the recurring meetings that I had setup, worked fine for me. I guess something to do with Outlook not storing the time zone? Not sure?
Let me know if you are still having any problems.
