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.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

Yes it is configure to a personal folder. It just defaulted to that. How do I change that setting???
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.
