Hallo!

On users computer go to Start>Run and type
Outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy

If this does not work then try

Outlook.exe/cleanreminders

Let us know if this helps.

You will need to close Outlook before you launch it using that command switch.

Hi,

I've done the followings in the user's PC:
attempt 1) Rebuilt OST file; failed
attempt 2) Ran Outlook using /cleanfreebusy switch; failed
Logged into another machine and setup email on it; busy status persists.

What does this /creanreminder does? And we need to execute this command onlu on that particular PC, right?

* Are you trying to use Outlook in Cached mode? Could you un-check the cached mode option in Email Accounts and then try to launch Outlook and see if that shows correct information
* Outlook /CleanReminder switch would clear your recurring reminders
* Have you tried to recreate users Windows Profile on that computer and then create a new Outlook profile to see if that works?
* If all of the above does not work then you'll need to force regeneration of Free/Busy information using the MFCMapi tool recommended by Microsoft. The below link will help you to sort it out.
