In Microsoft Outlook, displayed time matches system preference time (which I always set to 24-hr).

However, Entourage does not seem to follow the system preferences for time display.

Is there a way to make Entourage display send/receive timestamps in 24-hr format?

Microsoft says that Entourage uses the System time settings (see here). If it's not working, it's a bug.

It does mention, though, that "After changing the date or time settings, the new settings will not take affect in Entourage until you open an item or click a different folder in the folder list."

I've had my system format on 24-hr since January (when I got it), and Entourage hasn't followed that yet :-\ – warren Apr 14 '10 at 19:45
let me take that back: I've had it displaying as 24hr. Grrr! Thanks for the pointer – warren Apr 14 '10 at 19:52
why would the "displayed" and "actual" time formats be different? – warren Apr 15 '10 at 17:27
