How do I mark Bank Holidays as being out of office?

    It's easy to import a country's holidays in Outlook, but by default they seem
    to be marked as Free. What I really want to do (to prevent my colleagues in
    other countries trying to organise meetings with me when I'm out) is to have
    those days *automatically* be marked as Out Of Office.

    Any tricks?

  2. Create a custom view that groups by the Show time as field - drag from None
    to Busy or OOF group.

    It might be easier if you group by category and show time as - then all of
    the holidays will be together and you can drag that group.
