Default Syncing with Outlook 2007 Calendar -- Events show me as "Free"?

Please Login to Remove!

Every time I add a calendar item to my BB and then sync up, the item shows up in Outlook as "Free" instead of "Busy", making the calendar item have a white stripe through it and not "bolding" the day (if it's my only item that day) on my calendar overview. It's annoying to have so many items showing as "Free" all the time and when I take a quick glance at my calendar, some days aren't in bold so I think I'm free the entire day, when I'm actually not.

The default in Outlook is to make every calendar item I add a "Busy" item. Can I do this with on the BB calendar without having to go into each calendar event and change it to "Busy"? I can't seem to find any option to change the default on the Desktop Manager or in Outlook. I'm on a 8320.. I never had this issue with my 8700g, as everything defaulted to busy.

Any ideas?
