The goals are slightly different; here they are:

1. Client-1 can see when I'm free and when I'm busy *by viewing the gmail calendar that they set up for me in their own msemp -at- client-1 -dot- com gmail account* calendar. The busy times will include not only client-1's meetings (for which they should of course see the details), but also when they cannot schedule a meeting with me because I'm "busy" -- with other client meetings or personal time blocked out.

2. People at client-1 should not have to know that I have some other shared gmail calendar that they have to consult; they should just need to look at my msemp -at- client-1 -dot- com gmail calendar.

3. All my meetings that are on my local/personal Outlook calendar should appear on my gmail calendar, but show only "busy" -- not show the details of the appointment.

4. My wish is that the gmail sync tool not even upload the meeting details when it syncs from Outlook to gmail -- I don't really wish that info to live on gmail's servers.

I think items 1-3 *are* accomplished by the sync program -- at least that's what the sharing settings assure me -- but item 4 doesn't seem possible.

So I'll just continue to manually double-enter my non-client-1 meetings onto my client-1 gmail calendar. A bit of a nuisance, but not so bad.
