Hello
I have a small office LAN . I have MS Mail and Outlook on each client.  How do I enable users to have access to other users Calendars (so a secratary can change bosses calendar).
I tried going into the calendar properties and there was an admin tab, but everything was greyed out, there was no tab for Permissions. How do I enable this?

You have the option Delegate where you can give permissions to a secretary to see your calendar or any folder that you want.
You have to go to Tools , Options, Delegates ( there you define the delegate and gives the permissions that you want).
Then to connect you have to do File, Open Special Folder

PD: You must have Exchange Server to habilitate this option.

Thanks, but i have a couple of questions
1) so there is no way to use it with MSmail?
2) To use it with Exchange: Do I  configure exchange 1st then install Outlook , or when I install Exchange will outlook automatically pick up this feature?
3) I had exchange running before and I still did not see any "delegate" Option
in tool- options.  We opted for MSmail because it is a small LAN and MS mail actually
performs better the MS Exchange for this small LAN.
4) IS there a certain Version or add on for Outlook to enable this feature . Because like I said above,  I have ran Exchange w/outlook and did not get this option or a permissions tab, which I read should be available?

1)No way with MSMAIL.
2) When you install Outlook this options apperar, now you must have them,but not habilitate.
You don't have to do anything with Exchange.
3) If you don´t see the option is becuause the Outlook you are installed doesnt have the extensions for Exchange ( I think if you install with the Personal option it let you include this option.In spite of this I have troubbles installing Outllook from the CD of Office 97, so I have to buy the Outlook apart and there I have the full options.
I hope this help.
