Hello All,

We recently moved from 2000 to 2003 exchange server, and upgraded all our users to Outlook 2003. Now some our users have 2 calendars, one that is simply Calendar and the other is Calendar in Mailbox. What is the differrence, and how do I get only one calendar showing that all people can view.

Also, one user has no calendar showing under Calendars. They need to open a shared calendar to see there own appointments.

    1.)  You may want to check your Data Files because you may have two that is personal and mailbox for exchange.  If they do not have anything in this personal folder then you would simply delete this data file and only use the exchange file.  I'm assuming when you migrated you backup each profile into a .pst file then restored it back.  

    2.)  You may want to do the same if not remove the profile all together then recreate making sure not to use the old data file.  You may want to delete all then recreate.

    It could be the same calender just showing in 2 places.

    If they click on the "folder list" icon in the lower portion of the left panel this will cause the calender to show in the folder list as well as the calender button below the folder list.  It is the same calender, just 2 ways to access it.

    Thanks for replying,

    I will check what monty said on Monday, I thought I checked to make sure the personal .pst was deleted. I remeber needing to create a dummy pst. Because I recreated the account again trying to figure this out.
