Is it possible to prevent users who have full edit calendar control within the Public folder, from deleting past entries?

Hello experts,

The pres of our company wishes to be able to view past calendar events of a handful of users within the public folder of Outlook 2003, but wants to know they haven't been deleted/revised for PAST entries only.
So if a user adds an event to the calender for themselves, they can edit the event up until the current day only. Once item is in the past, it can no longer be deleted or revised.
Seems to me this would be ideal for keeping tabs on workers past schedules, but I can't seem to find any info if it's possible to do.

Thanks for your thoughts and help

hi, markhaynes.

Not possible.  Outlook folder security is set at the folder, not the item, level.  The only way to prevent changes would be to move the items out of that folder into an archive folder.
