Hi, in outlook 2007 when I go to Tools->Options->Calendar Options->Free/Busy Options-> Permissions

there's a list of accounts that have permissions to view my calendar. Listed are "Default" with a permission level of "Free/Busy time", and Anonymous with a permission level of "None".

What is default? and what is "Anonymous"?

    Default is the default viewing permissions of your calendar's free busy.
    These permissions affect what others with outlook accounts can see.

    Anonymous, would be access for say system accounts and or viewers that do not have a user name or an outlook account associated to it.

    These accounts and permissions are Outlooks defaults when installed and an Outlook User is setup.

    Best to leave them just as they are.

    If you want to provide someone or a group of users with additional access to your calendar its best to do it through Tools>Options>Delegates.
