Hi i am trying to share 3 calendars using outlook2007, i have created the shared calendar and given the calendars the correct permissions using the address book to assign it to a distribution group E.G BLAh ALL, but when i attempt to open this calendar on antoher pc i use the BLah ALL to view it but it says something about a this is not  a email account etc and cannot open the folder.

Is there something i am missing here?
The network is on exchange 2003

Or is the a easier way to do this share as i need the whole comapny to be able access this easily.

Cheers

Matt

The easy way would be create an Account specificaly for each calendar so you can share the default calendar on that account etc.

It soulds like you have created a new Calendar folder within an existing mailbox and assigned permissions to it - this can be made to work but as the folders are not the standard created folders you would need to add at least reviewer permissions to the top of mailbox so other clients can enumerate the list of folders and see the one it actualy has rights to.
Yoy would then need to add the mailbox as an additional mailbox and use the folder view to access it.

As I say the easy way would be to have each shared calendar on a dedicated mailbox.
