Let me guess: you are using the Funambol server? That server doesn't
support time zones and therefore ignores the time zone information sent
by SyncEvolution. This is just one of many problems with iCalendar 2.0
support in the current Funambol release. The next release will add time
zone support, but it is not out yet and won't address some of the other
known issues. For the details, see [1].

SyncEvolution's (or rather Evolution's) support for time zones is pretty
complete. There were some issues in Evolution calendars with conflicting
time zone definitions, but those will be addressed in 2.22.3 and are
already handled by SyncEvolution >= 0.8 alpha 1 [2].
