Expand Public Folders then right click on All Public Folders, choose New Folder then type in the Calendar name and choose Calendar items from the drop down, click OK.

You should be able to open outlook logged in as an admin on the domain and in exchange, open public folders, right click new folder and under Name there should be a filed for, Folder Contains, which you can shoose Calendar, and you are done.  To set more granular permission, log into the exchange server and go to System Manager to manage settings there.

You need to give yourself permissions to do that then.  What version of Exchange are you running?

Exchange 2003. I have a public folder tree called "public folders" There is a folder called "Internet Newsgroups" inside it. I have given my self permission for that folder. I can creat calenders inside it. But I want to create a folder with a more meaningful name like shared calenders ore something like that. Can rename the "Internet Newsgroups" folder either.

Don't rename Internet Newsgroups, grant yourself permissions to "public folders"

Manage to get it sorted. There were some problems with the permission. I have a new folder called calenders now.  I still cant delete "Internet Newsgroups" folder. Giving an error message. This is the error I received.
"" This error may be the result of trying to delete more than 4,000 messages at one time.  Outlook can delete no more than 4,000 messages when it is working with a server message store.
To avoid this error, delete fewer than 4,000 messages in a single operation.
It is also possible you do not have the appropriate permissions to delete messages. If you need to delete content from a folder owned by someone else, contact the owner of the folder to obtain the necessary permissions, or have the owner delete the content for you.
More information about this error message online. ""

I wouldn't worry about the "Internet Newsgroups" folder.  I'd leave it alone.
