Outlook 2010 turn off preview on meeting request

Since we upgraded to 2010, when you receive a meeting notice in the middle it gives a small preview of your calendar for that day and time. I have a client that wants to turn that feature off. He is convinced it's slowing his machine down and he'd rather click the calendar button to see if he's available. I can't find the option anywhere though. I thought it might be the "show calendar details in the scheduling grid" under calendar options, but that didn't work. Does anyone know if it's possible?

The only way to turn off the calendar previews in th ereading pane would be to turn off the entire Reading Pane itself

That wasn't in a reading pane. That was after double clicking to open the meeting request. As a test I turned off the reading pane and when I opened the meeting request the preview is still there. Thanks for trying!

In that case, your deffinatley cannot avoid seeing it.
This is by design and is built into OUtlook 2010 Calendar invite message.

If user not happy, you could always offer to roll them back to 2007/2003

You might find they are happy with keeping it

I guess Microsoft did not provide an option to disable this feature.
