Sharing policies allow individual users in your Exchange organization to share calendar free/busy information with other federated Exchange organizations, non-federated Exchange organizations, and individual Internet users. During the course of normal operations, you may want to change some sharing policy properties, such as modifying sharing rules, changing the free/busy access level, temporarily disabling a sharing policy, or removing a sharing policy entirely.
