Outlook Calendar and Private Appointments
Its recently been brought to my attention (I recently remembered the Exchange group at my old job announced it) that if you share your calendar with others Private appointments are not totally private. If I open Nancy's (example person) calendar and it shows a public and private appointment. I can double click on the public appointment and then select View->Next appointment it now shows the private appointment. To the best of my knowledge m$ does not consider this a bug -its more of a "feature". This "feature" is available in office 2000 and 97. I know of no way to prevent what I described from happening other then limiting who share the calendar with and never making appointments that could later bite me in the ass. If you know of a patch to make private appointments trully private please share it.
