I am using outlook 2000, 2002 and 2003 in a 2003 exchange environment on a 2003 domain. I have just noticed that when I assign a delegate permissions to my calendar then ok my way back to outlook then go back into delegates the permissions have reverted to none. It doesn't matter what permissions I assign or who I assign them to it still doesn't work.

Has anyone seen this before and more importantly does anyone know how to fix it.

Have you looked at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;328927&Product=out OL2002: The Folder Permissions Change for Exchange 2000 Accounts When You Add a Delegate to a Microsoft Outlook Special Folder

It applies to different Exchange version, but it may be resolved the same way.

Nice try but sadly it doesn't make any difference.

Perhaps there's another way of doing what I'm trying to achieve. I want to assign global access to calendars within outlook i.e I want everyone to be able to view everbody's calendars. I can't see a way of doing it other than delegating.

Ok, I recreated the problem using Outlook 2000:

Added UserA under the permissions of the calendar folder.
Added UserA under the delegates tab of Tools > Options
Checked delegate permissions.  Ok
Deleted UserA under the permissions of the calendar folder.
Checked delegate permissions.  NONE
Added -again- UserA under the permissions of the calendar folder.
Checked delegate permissions.  Ok

You don't need delegate permission for your calendar if you just want to share the calendar without granting send-on-behalf of permission.

Go Calendar > Right-click Properties > Permissions > Add

That's what I did in the end. I was worried about the 'delegate receives copies of meeting related messages...' check box in delegates, because there is no option for that in calendar permissions, but I discovered it is greyed out if you only grant reveiwer access.

Thanks for your help.
