outlook 2003 appointments default

  Newuser3477 16:34 29 Oct 2008

When I open the new appointment screen in Outlook 2003, to add a timed entry, the default in the above version shows the "all day" event ticked.
I then have to untick this to see the timing windows. How can I alter this default please

I took a look at this but it seems you can't do this easily but got this from here - click here

You can set the reminder default for timed appointments in Tools, Options. All day events will always default to 18 hours - this cannot be changed.

Free/Busy does not have an option to set the default status. However, appointments are always Busy and all day events are always free. If you open the new appointment form using the New button or by clicking on a time period in the day or week view Busy will be preselected. It you click on a date in the month grid, you're creating all day events by default, which are always Free.
