In the past I gone into Exchange Systems Manager/ Administrative Groups/ First Administrative Group/ Folders/ Public Folders. From here I would create a new public folder and by default it would be a calendar. I just tried to create a new public folder (for a calendar) and the content is like a email browse rather than a calendar. I've looked at other settings to make sure it's setup like the others and appears to setup like the other folders. please help...

I don't know how you managed to setup a public folder calendar through ESM as that isn't possible. All public folders created through ESM are mail.
You should use Outlook to create the public folders - that lets you select the type and is easier to manage the permissions. Only use ESM to modify the mail settings (which isn't required for a calendar).

Well you can view the calendars from ESM, correct. this is were I have always created the calendars and changed the permissions. Know when I create one it is mail rather than a calendar. So you're saying that it's impossible to create calendar from this location?
I'm sorry, I'm still trying to figure this all out.
Would you tell me the best way to create a public calendar where I can control the permissions from the server.
Thank you for all your help!!!

I always create public folders in Outlook. Never in ESM. Ditto for setting the permissions - always done in Outlook, not in ESM. As I posted above, I only use ESM for email tasks.

Just because you are the Exchange administrator doesn't mean you have to use ESM for everything. Outlook is part of the Exchange tool set and should be used.

Just create the folder in the usual way - right click, New, Folder. Select the type as Calendar. Then give it the name. Once created set the permissions.
Usually you would set the Default permissions to none, ensure that there is at least one owner and then set the permissions as required.

I went into outlook (exchange account) and created a new calendar. I set the permissions. I am the owner and everyone else are reviewers. I made sure that the box was checked 'folder visible' and other still cant see the calendar. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.
Here is what I am doing: Once the calendar is shared I look into the public folder in the folder list and it isn't there. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you!

What did you use to make the calendar visible to everyone else?

You usually get three permissions by default on new public folder creation...

- Anonymous - Contributor
- Default - Editor often, but can be inherited
- <creator> - Owner (the person who created the folder will be the owner)

Did you add another permission group? Modify something else?
