Sharing secondary calendars in Outlook 2003

Using Outlook 2003 I have created a secondary calendar, stored on the Exchange server.  I've set up share rights to my team, however they can only see my primary calendar. How can I get my team to be able to access only the secondary calendar?

Outlook help says it is possible to view a secondary calendar, specifying that you have to allow high level rights to your whole mailbox, I have done this, and permissions are consistent for both calendars and the whole mailbox.

    go to ur tools \option \delegates and choose a delegate and u will see the folders that can be delegated(or shared in outlook).one way to achieve what u want is to give a person
    full mailbox right(in exchange enviroment u must ask ur admin)and the other person
    must add ur mailbox to his profile and open ur mailbox in his or her profile and access ur
    secondary folders....or create a public folder and choose who can have access to that folder and copy all ur contacts to that folder.

    Thanks for the response.    I don't want to give my team full mailbox rights, so I've achieved the same result by creating and restricting access to a public folder as you suggested.  Are there any additional considerations with public folders I should be aware of such as automatic purging?

    if u like 60 days will be a fair number.u can and should set the numbers for deletion settings(60 will also be a fair number).If u add any public folder to ur favorits it will be available off line and public calander folders should not be used as resource mailboxes...
