Outlook folder permissions greyed out

On our citrix server when a user tries to give permission to their calendar, tasks contacts, etc., it will only allow you only to add a user, but give them no rights.  All options are greyed out.  You can't even delete the user.  If i delete the outlook profile, it will work the first time they log in but not after that.

Not really.  I am logging in as the user using citrix client.  The user can't even modify permissions.  If I create the profile on my machine, then log in as that user, I can modify the permissions.  So I am thinking it is something in the registry on the citrix server or a permission issue.

I went into AD and gave the user full rights, logged into citrix and everything is still greyed out.  I tried several users logging in through citrix and they are all greyed out.  If I do it on my machine, it works.

Ok..I think I am lost.  We are running Exchange 2000 and I thought the only way to set the permissions were to do it from AD Users.  Where would I do it in Exchange?

AD user account would be associated with its own mailbox...you can check that on the properties of the AD user account...and provide full permission on exchange tab

This still didn't help.  Everything is still greyed out.  Remember this is only on citrix.  If I log in as a user on my pc with the outlook client,then I can modify permissions.

That didn't help either.  But it did help me pinpoint the issue.  We have a 3rd Party Application - Interwoven Filesite 8.2 (document management) that we create a data file for.  If I delete that data file, then the permissions are available again.  If I readd the data file, then the permissions grey out.
