Outlook 2003 - group by view and defaulting to public calendar

Two issues -

1) When looking at a contact folder, I have a view setup to group by category and sort by Company name.  If I change the sort by field by clicking on a header, it also blows away my group by category.  I don't remember this in Outlook - when I told it to group by category, it held that no matter what.  I'd rather not create a different view for every column I MIGHT sort by.

2) Is there a way when Outlook opens the first time to have it open a shared calendar instead of a personal calendar?  I have a user that does NOT use their personal calendar and is disturbed that they always have to close the personal calendar and open the shared one (A whole two clicks.)

1- not aware of how do disable the view persistance, sorry. I wonder if you could hotkey views?
2- No way to do this.  You might create a shortcut instead to the shared calendar and they can simply click that icon to open it.
