Exchange 2010 SP1
Is the a way to change this in EMC? if not what is the exact ps cmdlet and syntax?

Default seems to be 8am to 5pm

Need the change to be for Outlook and not for a single user

I am aware of ...
Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration -Identity tony -WorkingHoursStartTime 07:00:00

But I want to change global setting

No I don't think it is possible however you can

get-mailbox | foreach { Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration $ -WorkingHoursStartTime 07:00:00}

OK here is the correct syntax

foreach ($user in get-mailbox) { Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration $ -WorkingHoursStartTime 07:00:00}

I keep on forgetting these changes done to 2k10 :S
