Can you disable 'My Calendar' in the list of Calendars in Outook 2003?

Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2000.

When you switch to 'Calendar' view with Outlook 2K3, you have a list, with checkboxes beside them, of Cals you can open.

[X] My Calendar
[] Jim Smith's Calendar
[] Boardroom Calendar

I have a number of secretaries who never use their own cal, they just maintain their boss's cal.  

When they click on Calendar, their's is checked off and their bosses is not.  

They have to uncheck theirs and check off the boss's.

Is it possible in Outlook to configure/set/disable/enable what Calendars are listed there?  

They would like to have either their own cals not appear, or default to having their boss's cals checked off.

Any insight?

    Hello tnorman,

    AFAIK you can't, the default Calendar folder is always the one in your default information store be it your pst or mailbox

    it is a much requested feature however
