Exchange 2003 public folders / clendar

Hi,
I would like to create different calendars (for meeting rooms, cars, etc) and I would like those calendars to be displayed in the calendar section of the outlook of my users. How do I proceed to do that?

The only way i think of doing this is to create a user called "VW car" and then share the calendar to allow everyone that needs access having access.
Then on each of the users you can instruct them to choose
File => Open => Other users folder
then choose the user "VW Car"

Would it not be easier to but the calendar in the public folders...?

If you are wanting to set the calanedar up as a resource so people can schedule meetings an other resources you will need to create these users/email accounts individually then log on to the account you created and open up outlook then go to tools options then select calender here you will have to set it to be a resource account by checking the coresponding options you want. After you have done this you will need to go to the clients that need access to the specific calendar and open a shared calendar.

Create the Calendars in Public Folders  and then add them to teh users favorites folder.

This will show them in the Other clandars section of the navigation Pane - and wil even allow them to be viewed side by side with their personal calendar.

DavidT543 : I tryed that but nothing is being shown in the calendars (I do not have the other calendars option showig) we are using outlook 2007 and 2003 (mainly 2007)

JohnGerhardt and abn38 : I know that solution but I wanted another one in order to avoid having to open the account on a computer to to that. If there is no other solution then I will accept your answers.

To everyone : Thank you for your help !

Remember that Exchange server 2007 will no longer have the calendar public folder functionality. Thats why we went to the method i suggested. If you dont plan on upgrading then the public folder solution is the easiest in my opinion.

well public folder doesn't seem to be working
I am not planning into migrating to exchange 2007 for the moment as 2003 works fine but maybe later on.

abn38 - what do you mean Exchange 2007 will no longer have the calendar public folder functionality. As far as I am aware Exchange 2007 has full Public Folder functionality, and Microsoft have gone back on their statement that Exchange 2011 (or whatever) will not have public folders - and have now said that they will continue public folders at least in th enext version after Exchange 2007.

dlan 75- did you create the public folder calendars and add the to favorites as I suggested? In the navigation pane select calendars - and tick the boxes of all the calendars you want to see.
