I have a group calendar in public folders. I would like to setup the perms so that anything I add to the calendar cannot be changed by any other users, but I also want them to have the ability to add items to the calendar. What are the correct perms to do this?  Thanks.

To be honest I'm not sure.  I think they have to be added in Exchange.
