Sharing Calendars

I can't share a calendar in Outlook 2003. The "Share My Calendar Option" is not there. When I right click the calendar the "sharing" option is inactive. I am using an exchange server account. The server is running Exchange 2003. All desktops are running Outlook 2003  but only one of them can't share a calendar.

On the your PC:

Open Outlook

On the menu bar select Tools > Options

Click on the Delegates tab.

Click Add... then choose your assistant from Global Address Book and click OK.

You can then specify the permissions you wish to grant the delegate (assistant).  Click OK when done. (*if more than one person is being given delegate access, you may want to give Reviewer permission to ensure that not too many people have change capabilities.)

Click Apply. Click OK

Is this Outlook configured to have email delivered to a personal folder instead of the mailbox? That can cause what you are seeing.

Outlook being configured to connect to Exchange does not default to personal folders. It must have been changed.
The default it Mailbox.

To change it, simply change the delivery location in the Account settings. Then restart Outlook.
Find the PST file that has been used to date and import all of the content in to the mailbox.
