If you delete the primary Calendar folder from the Microsoft Exchange Server, Outlook creates a new Calendar folder. The new folder does not contain appointments from the old folder but the small calendar displayed in Day/Week/Month view still shows bolded days for the old appointments.
Deleting the Calendar folder from the server does not reset the free/busy information in Outlook.
Run Outlook with the /CleanFreeBusy command-line startup switch.
NOTE: The font settings for the Date Navigator may also cause the appointments to appear bolded. To check these settings:
- On the Tools menu, click Options.
- Click the Calendar tab.
- In the Date Navigator section, click Font, ensure that the Font Style is not Bold, and then click OK two times to close the Options dialog boxes.
To clear free/busy time that does not represent a Calendar item, follow these steps:
- Quit Outlook.
- On the Windows desktop, right-click the Outlook icon.
- On the shortcut menu, click Properties.
- On the Shortcut tab, type a space followed by /cleanfreebusy in the Target box or Command Line box. If the last character in the path line is a quotation mark, be sure to type the space and switch name outside the quotation mark.
- Click OK, then restart Outlook.
For more information about the use of /cleanfreebusy and other startup switches, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
