How do I disable Calendar Timezome Option in Outlook 2007?

Hi All,
Bit of a strange request from someone at work so not sure it is even possible.

In Outlook 2007 there is a new option when creating Appointments to select a Timezone.
When other people receive this invite (and they are in a different timezone) the meeting shows up in the Calendar in the correct local time and when they open it up, it shows in the senders time with the senders timezone beside it (greyed out).

For most people this is fine because they will change the timezone on the computer when they are travelling.
I have one user who doesn't do this though and their assistant needs to move the appointments manually.

So the question is, Can I make Outlook show the time in the local time when they open up the appointment (like Outlook 2003) i.e. not the senders time and timezone?

I cant find any settings to do this and I know there are some registry hacks that disable some things like this but cant find anything on it.

In my opinion OL2k7 appointments and meeting-requests got some more MAPI Attributes.

Even if you disable\grey-out some of the field (like time-zone button) @ UI...still Outlook2k7 should be using the other MAPI attributes....so wont be able to get the OL2k3 behaviour.

End user training...reason: Next coming Outlook versions are going to have these added\more MAPI attributes.

I thought this might be the case but would have been nice to have.
At the moment it causes some confusion in a shared calendar when people from different time zones access it.

Was worth checking though thank you.
