We are running Exchange 2010, and I know you can set the free/busy to extend in the Outlook client individually, but how you do change the publishing globally?

Outlook Client = Outlook 2010
O/S = Win 7

Thanks!

OL2010

I know we can have the user publish more through options, but we want it to do it by default.

Okay, going to seem a little nieve here. We are simply looking for a way that users can see out up to a year when scheduling events and meetings.

Business need: It's a law firm, attorneys typically need to schedule that far out, and their assistants need to see that.

I dont think it would differ for Oulookt 2007 and 2010.

Basically you would be pusing the below registry Key.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences

You can define the policy using Outlook Policy Template files, attaches is the screenshot for the same
