First, my environment:

Outlook 2010 with Exchange 2010. No PSTs.

Two issues, actually.

First, in Outlook 2010, I can add the calendar of anyone in the company as a shared calendar, by clicking on "My Calendar" and then "Add". This seems like it should be locked down by default, not wide open by defaul. Can this be controlled?

Second, once I add someone else to my calendar, if I click on a meeting I get a prompt asking me if I want to ask this user for permission to their calendar. I see a potential for abuse here, and would like to disable this prompt altogether.

In a corp enviroment, it's generally good to see other calendars - they can restrict who can see how much by setting permissions. Generally speaking, free-busy is suitable for all, details only for specific users.




To set permissions on your own calendar, right click on the calendar and choose properties, then permissions. SEt the permission for Default and it will apply to everyone who doesn't have explicit permissions. The admin can use PFDAVAdmin to change permissions on all mailboxes.




The prompt comes up because you don't have permission to view their calendar yet. No, you can't disable this - and honestly, I'm not aware of any widespread abuse of it.
