PFDAVAdmin Exchange 2007: 401 errors

Hi All,
Back in the Exchange 2003 days I used to use the PFDAVAdmin tool to assign everyone in our organisation reviewer permissions to each other’s calendar.  When I try to use the latest version of the tool (v2.8) to carry out the same task in Exchange 2007 I get the following error:

Could not connect to http://servername***************: The remote server returned an error: 401 (Unauthorized)

I’ve created a domain admin account and have assigned full access rights to my mailbox for this account by running the below command but when I run PFDAVAdmin with the account credentials specified in the shell command and attempt to browse my mailbox I still get the 401 error.

Get-Mailbox “MyUsername” | Add-MailboxPermission -User “UserAccount”-AccessRights FullAccess

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
