Just create the new folder and make sure that you assign the appropriate elements (I think, Scheduling Elements should apply to the english version)

Thanks, but i´ve created a folder in the way you told me. Outlook don´t recognize the new folder as the default calendar folder. You can see this, when you create an appointment with alarm. Outlook tells me, that the appointment isn't created in the calendar or the task folder.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I guess, it's a problem on the server (or did I misunderstand "exchange client"?)

You don't misunderstand server. We have exchange server 4.0 and Outlook Clients 8.0.

My understanding of Outlook 98 so far is don't mess with the default folders. Create new ones if you want but don't create a new one and name it exactly like the default one.

Export your data to a .pst, delete and recreate the mailbox (or ask the admin to do this) and import your data from .pst (.ost doesn't work 'cause of changing ID): that's the only way to get default folders
