Exception converting .eml to .msg for meeting with non-US date

I'm using Aspose.Email to convert .eml files to .msg files. I've encountered a couple of cases where converting a meeting message with specific content (or lack thereof) will generate an exception.

I'm using this code to do the conversion

MailMessage msg = MailMessage.Load("file.eml", MessageFormat.Eml);

msg.Save("file.msg",MailMessageSaveType.OutlookMessageFormat); <-generates exception

In this case, I have a text/calendar MIME section in the .eml file that has a recurrence entry which has a TimeZone parameter. If the TZID is as shown below, I get an exception with a message of String was not recognized as a valid DateTime (the line may be wrapped here in the forum but it is all on one line in the file).

RECURRENCE-ID;TZID="(UTC+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris":20130325T143000

If, however, I change that line so that the TZID is: Eastern Standard Time, the conversion works.

RECURRENCE-ID;TZID=Eastern Standard Time:20130325T143000

Here's the full text/calendar section (I know there is a mix of Time zones in the file. It still seems to hinge on the recurrence item)
