Outlook 2007

I started distributing office 2007 at work. Today I noticed that most notably the contacts, and calendar folder has the little hand on the icon making it appear that it is being shared. I checked the permissions of the folders, and they shouldnt be shared, there is only the default user in the permissions tab. I have a spare machine that still has office 2003 and I logged in with my account on both the spare machine with office 2003, and my laptop with 2007. On the office 2003 machine there is no little hand on the contacts folder, on my laptop, the little sharing hand is on the contacts folder. In the permissions tab of both machines only the default user is the owner of the folder. Is there somewhere else in outlook 2007 where sharing might be enabled?

I hope its not a sign of things to come. Such as Live meeting convenience of sharing contacts in a meeting.  Im just glad you understood what I meant by the sharing hand. I couldnt tell if I was describing what I meant very well.
