Hi, PearlJamFanatic.

Your out of office setting has nothing to do with being shown as out of the office on Outlook's calendar.  Each appointment item has a setting where you can show yourself as free, busy, or out of office.  Have you checked the relevant appointment(s) to see if you've set the appointment as out of office?

Dynamodux: I tried the switch but no change.
BlueDevilFan: The status is set to busy.

I was earlier working on jinegra application that played with my calendar. The central data is refreshed by the sys admin and now the calendar is fine.
