Hi there,

Hopefully this is a simple problem for users that are skilled at scripting in Exchange 2007. I'm currently learning how to do this, so explanations of any code would be appreciated as well.

Basically what I want is for all domain users to be able to view the calendars of all other domain users. Ideally I'd like this to be a policy setting rather than a script that has to be re-run periodically when new users are added to the domain.

How can I do this? The network involved has Windows 2k3 servers running Exchange 2007 SP1 with client machines on XP/Office 2003.

I think there isn't any way to do so with policy instead of script or custom developed program in Exchange 2007.

You can do so with PFDavAdmin but you need to give permission for new users whenever it gets created.

I completely forgot about PFDavAdmin! That works well and easily, however I've also given points to lk-data as that way works too - though its clunkier.

Thanks for your help guys!
