Windows XP, Office 2007, setup as exchange account.  Share my calendar is not an option. The sharing option in properties is grayed out.  No problem sharing other outlook 2007 calendars on this network.

Is the delivery location set to mailbox or personal folder? Is Outlook online?

Assuming that Exchange is in fact being used.
You will need to enable the Exchange Client Extensions

GO to Tools>Trust Centre>Add-Ins
At the bottom Change,
Manage : COM Add-ins
Manage : Exchange Client Extensions


Place a check in all the available extensions


Close and reopen Outlook

Should now be able to share your Calendar.
