When I try to setup a meeting in outlook with multiple people, I can mouse over the blocks and actaully see the title of entries in their calendars.  Is there a way I can prevent this?

I am using Outlook 2003 hosted on Exchange 2007.

This is free/busy information.


You can turn it off in Outlook by going to: Tools > Options > Calendar Options > Free/Busy Options

Thanks demazter.  Following your path, I don't see a place to disable the option.

By the way, I still want people to see when I am busy or not, I just don't want them to be able to mouse over each of my time blocks and see actual time block information (calendar entry title and information).

The information is client controlled, you cannot control what is published only how it is viewed.

You are looking for the screen atached.

From Tools > Options > Calendar > Free/Busy Options (button)

OK, you don't have those options with Outlook 2003 so the answer I am afraid is "it's not possible"

Actually, the solution is in the same area code as what you listed.  If you right-click on the calendar, select properties > permissions tab and set both "default" and "anonymous" permissions to "none", it appears to do the trick.
