Showing two time zones in your Outlook Calendar

For the past few months I’ve been working on a project where the client is in the Pacific Time Zone.  I’m in the Eastern Time Zone.  Quite often when looking at my Outlook calendar I have to on the fly subtract 3 hours when talking or emailing the client.  While talking to Mick Talbott, a co-worker of mine that is in the Arizona Time Zone working on the same project as I am he mentioned you can setup Outlook to display another time zone.  I think my exact words were “really?”.  He told me how and now I’m telling you how.

Notice how my Outlook was only showing the times of the time zone I was in.
