I would like to receive a prompt/warning when deleting a calendar entry (resulting in cancelling the meeting) , using the delete key.  I do have the box checked for "prompt for confirmation before permanently deleting items" but do not receive a prompt.  Is there another way to enable a prompt to be displayed when deleting a calendar entry/meeting using the delete key?
