    Permission as in opening another users folder?
    Then are you calendar items marked as private?

    Or are you asking about viewing the calendar when scheduling meetings?
    Then check to see if your calendar properties has the check next to, "Automatically generate MS Exchange Views"

    Assuming you both have permissions set to "Folder Visible" in the properties of the Calendar folder as well as the Parent Folder (Outlook Today - username)... try deleting and recreating your profiles and apply the permissions again.

    In case you are not completly clear on setting permissions on Calendars/Tasks etc... here is a link.

    In addition to "folder visible" being selected sometime you may also need to also select "read items."
