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?

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.
