You can add a query builder to outlook. Its a lready built in you just need to add a registry key.

Use Regedit to go to the appropriate location.
Right click and choose to add a new Key.

There aren't any other entries that need to be made.

I have been thinking about writing an outlook add-in that would do the whole free and busy thing (appointment calendaring) with a web application/service.
