Outlook 2003 and recurring appointments - no bolding calendar dates

I have a daily recurring appointment; however, I want to be able to not have Outlook bold the dates in the calendar pane on the left.  Is there any way to prevent just this one recurring appt from making Outlook bold each date - otherwise I can't tell when I have "real" appointments scheduled.
I'm not unfamiliar with VB/VBA (no expert by any means, but I can get by if necessary), so if it requires some coding, I can handle it :)
Let me know if I'm not being clear on this :)

Opening up the recurring appointment and setting the "show time as" menu to Free should do it, but then if you are on exchange server and someone is trying to check your free/busy info to schedule a meeting with you they won't see that you are unavailable during the recurring appointment window.  Don't know if that is a problem or not.

Heh...sigh - yep, that worked :) - I feel brilliant now :)
And no, it's not a problem if the other Exchange users can't see it, as the appointment occurs outside of work hours ;)

Full points to you! :)
