I have a client that has Three Public Folder calenders one that is accessed and changed by one person only but can be viewed by all.  The other two that are available to all users to change and modify, and view.  The last two I speak of these calenders seem to be having problems with issuing e-mails to everyone invited to a meeting as well as updating their personal calenders in Outlook 2003.  It also gives a message stating that the responses will not be tallied because this meeting is not in your main calender folder.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Public Folders cannot work with free/busy information. Therefore you cannot invite a public folder to a meeting and trying to get a public folder to invite other people doesn't work as expected most of the time.

If you want to invite people to a meeting then you need to use resource mailboxes.

No it was not the Public folder I was inviting to a meeting it was the calenders that reside in the public folder I was using to schedule/ invite attendees and it is not updating the calenders of the invitees, nor is it tallying responses of who accepted or denied the invite.

If the calendar is being stored in a public folder then it cannot work with meeting requests. The only way you can have a calendar work with meeting requests is through a mailbox.
