Cancel meeting created by another user

One of my coworkers sent out a meeting request to about 175 people the other day, and we now need to cancel that meeting.  Unfortunately, he is out of the office this week.  He has made his mailbox and calendar visible to me, but I cannot send messages on his behalf.

Is there any setting that we can use in the future that will allow me to access his calendar and email and send messages on his behalf?

I would suggest then that you have Publishing Author or Publishing Editor permissions.  Note, the publishing editor will give you send-on-behalf rights, however, I am uncertain if that's absolutely necessary to have in order to send out the cancel notifications.

How do you set these permissions?  Is this on the Delegates tab in the Tools, Options dialog?

The only options I see are Reviewer, Author, and Editor.  Is this what I should be doing?

It's actually not in the delegates, but you'll have to do this on the computer that's sharing the calendar (it's doable from the exchange server, but I don't recommend going about it that way unless necessary).  On the person who is sharing the calendar, you can right-click the calendar and go to the permissions tab ( example: https://wsnet.colostate.edu/cwis292/helpmail/images/tipstricks/rc_delegateworkaround_06_publishingeditor.gif )

from here you should be able to change the permissions and then give it a test.

Sorry for the delay.  Exactly what I was looking for.
