Exch2003 - having a user be able to MODIFY/CREATE appointments in other user's calendar using OWA

Posted on 2009-12-19

I exchange 2003 OWA:
I can access another user's calendar in OWA using http://server/exchange/user/calendar

It however does not allow me to CREATE nor MODIFY appointments. The save/close part of it is grayed out. I've made sure that the user accessing the OWA has OWNER rights even (every right available) - it still does not allow me to create nor modify - only read the calendar.

Did I miss something?

    So is it the user accessing their own mailbox through OWA who can't modify their calendar or a user accessing someone else's mailbox and having issues?

    Does it work through Outlook?
    That will verify the permissions are correct.

    It works in Outlook User A can Access User B's calendar, change or add appointments so persmissions are seemingly correct.

    User A Needs to Access User B's Calendar through OWA.

    User A  can VIEW Users B's Calendar through OWA but cannot change nor create appointments.

    The REAL PLAN is to have User A access and change appointments in User B's calendar but User A is not to have access to their own mailbox even so that needs to be stripped out somehow at a later time. Ive been looking at ADSI Edit's for this to try to remove these Exch2003 features but thats a later issue.

    The reason we're trying to to this is: User A is supposed to be a call center rep that is supposed to view and book stuff in a "company calendar" which is user B. They are however not to have their own outlook functionalilty - only view and change user B's appointments. Has anyone on here had any experience with something similar possibly?

    Accepted Solution

    I did something similar a while ago, but I used a third party tool to do the management - Look from Symprex.

    To have permissions in a mailbox the user will need to be email enabled. Therefore it is not possible to remove the mailbox from the second user. The only way you can have permissions without being enabled is to be granted Full Mailbox Access at the server level, but that grants access to the entire mailbox and cannot be restricted down.
