NOTE: The procedures in this article only apply if you have installed Outlook with the Corporate or Workgroup option. With this option, you can use Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) services. To determine your installation type, click About Microsoft Outlook on the Help menu. If you have the Corporate or Workgroup installation, you see "Corporate or Workgroup".
On a computer that contains multiple profiles, the Free/Busy options will be the same for every profile.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
More information
The Free/Busy information is stored on a per-user basis rather than a per-profile basis. If the user who is logged on to the computer defines multiple profiles, each profile will contain the same Free/Busy information.

To set the calendar Free/Busy information, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Preferences tab, click Calendar Options.
  3. Click Free/Busy Options. In the Free/Busy Options dialog box you can set the following items:
    • How many months of Free/Busy information to publish.
    • How frequently the information should be updated.
    • Whether the information should be published on the Internet.
    • The Internet URL address for storing and searching for the information.
