Outlook meeting scheduling

When scheduling a meeting in outlook, I need a user to be able to tell if the invitee is busy or free during that time .
Is there a way to configure this from exchange server or Active directory, so that it gets applied for a set of users or all users in the organization?

thanks

Hi,

This functionality is in Exchange by default, if it is not working we will require more information:

- What version of Exchange?
- What version of Outlook?
- How is Free/Busy information being distributed (PF/IIS)

I suggest reading through this article for a bit of background on the system:

I have seen cases where Admins had to change the registery in windows workstations, in order for users to see the Free/busy information in the calendar
