Next, I tried to send a meeting request from evolution to Outlook.
The meeting request creation was pretty easy, but again Outlook received
the attachment as "att20984.att" rather than meeting subject line.ics.

I saved the file as a .ics file and imported it into my calendar.  

The meeting was added to my Outlook calendar, but the time was four
hours too early!  I noticed that the Gnome timezone was NYC USA, which
is on EDT, and my windows system is set to EDT also.  

Any ideas as to why this occurred?

What is your timezone set to in Evolution? (See the Tools/Calendar
Settings dialog.)

Short question, Why does this need to be set separatly instead of using
the TZ-variable???

We use our own set of timezone data (because we need it in VTIMEZONE
format and it is very difficult to get that from the OS).

We could use TZ to guess the initial setting, though there isn't an
exact correspondance so we may guess wrong.
