This example uses the Start property of the AppointmentItem object to determine if the appointment starts after normal business hours. If it does, and if the Sensitivity property of the AppointmentItem object is not already set to olPrivate, the example offers to mark the appointment as private.

Public WithEvents myOlItems As Outlook.Items 
Public Sub Initialize_handler() 
 Set myOlItems = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items 
End Sub 
Private Sub myOlItems_ItemChange(ByVal Item As Object) 
Dim prompt As String 
 If VBA.Format(Item.Start, "h") >= "17" And Item.Sensitivity <> olPrivate Then 
 prompt = "Appointment occurs after hours. Mark it private?" 
 If MsgBox(prompt, vbYesNo + vbQuestion) = vbYes Then 
 Item.Sensitivity = olPrivate 
 End If 
 End If 
End Sub
