I have a user who has to set each new meeting to Show Only My Working Hours in Outlook 2007, otherwise, she see's 24 hours. She has set her working hours, it's just that she has to choose the option every time she starts a new meeting request. Is there any way to make it the default setting for her? I have recreated her Outlook profile.

Hi, LeoTolstoy.

Outlook does not have a setting (i.e. something in options) that controls this (i.e. makes it the default behavior).  Neither is there a registry setting that controls this (or at least not one that I can discover).  The behavior a person sees depends on how they create an appointment.  Selecting New > Appointment (or Meeting Request) or double-clicking on the calendar in Month view will not limit the times to working hours.  However, if you switch to Day or Week view and double-click on the calendar, then the time will be limited to working hours.

That totally saved me hours of searching to find a solution; I had already spent hours, this saved me hours more. I never knew that about Outlook - the way you open the new meeting requests effects the hours you see. Seems to me, that is a design flaw in Outlook, but, maybe Microsoft had a reason for doing it that way. Thank you for the solution.

You're welcome.  Happy to have helped.

"... that is a design flaw in Outlook ..."
I'm inclined to agree.  I think a persistent option makes more sense.
