Zimbra 7.0.2 OSE Redhat AS 6
Zextra 1.6.2
Timezone on Zimbra: Abu Dhabi (GMT+4)
Timezone on Iphone4 IOS 5.1.1: GMT+4

1/Try to create a appointment using Iphone
  Connect to your Zimbra: the appointment is not at the same time

2/Test using Android 4.0.4 (Cyanogenmod 9.1):
  No problem.

Additional note:
tested on Iphone 3Gs IOS 5.1.1
using timezone "Saint-denis, Réunion" (should be GMT+4) when creating appointment.
On Zimbra it indicate: (GMT+400) GMT+04.00/+05.00 , should be GMT+4 only.
Comment 3 Cine 2012-11-07 15:49:45 CET
Regarding the "(GMT+400) GMT+04.00/+05.00" comment:

This is the correct behaviour, as the "GMT+4 - Saint Denis" timezone is not in the Zimbra's timezone list, so the timezone is set to a "default" GMT+04.00. The "GMT+05.00" is shown to specify that the timezone is "GMT+04.00 on normal time and GMT+05.00 on DST" and not "GMT+03.00 on normal time and GMT+04.00 on DST".

Have a nice day,
