This page at Outlookcode.com (http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=139) shows how to set the label color of an appointment.  The colors themselves cannot be changed, i.e. you cannot substitute one color for another or alter the label colors in any way.  As for doing this automatically, that's simple enough.  We just need to trap the event that's fired when an item is added to the calendar.  Something like this:

Private WithEvents olkCalendar As Items

Private Sub Application_Quit()
    Set olkCalendar = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Startup()
    Set olkCalendar = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items
End Sub

Private Sub olkCalendar_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    'Code for whatever you want to do when a new item is added goes here
End Sub
