Change default delete option for recurring tasks

Is there a way to change the default setting for deleting a recurring task
from "Delete All" to "Delete this one"?
I am using outlook 2007 and have daily recurring tasks. If I mess up and
hit delete, then enter, I can delete a recurring task completely, but if I
reversed the default, I would only delete the one and it would reschedule
itself for the next day. That not only seems easier, but safer.

Took me a few minutes to see what you were asking, but I think I understand now:

To give an example to make sure:
You are looking at your calendar and see a task marked as recurring
You want to delete the task just for that day
But when you choose to delete the task, the default is to delete all the tasks, unless you choose Delete this one so if you're not carefull, you can possibly wipe out all the entries for that one task.

Do not believe that there is any way to change this behavior by clicking on a menu option. This menu default option is most likely programmed into Outlook program.

To verify this, you should contact Micro$oft or repost this in a developer forum to see if anyone knows of an Outlook addon program that replaces or enhances the Outlook Calendar.
