I have a client that cannot access permissions in a shared calendar.  They cannot find a user who has any ownership to the calendar.  They also cannot see any tabs for permissions in the properties.
Is there a way to seize ownership of a shared calendar in the public folders?

My apologies if this is unclear.

Yes, from the Exchange Management you can open the public folder database and modify the calendar's properties (including permission).  What version of exchange is your client using?

Exchange 2007.  I have gotten into the Exchange Management.  A bit out of my element in there.

I only have a 2010 console handy, but if memory serves they are virtually the same on this part.

OK, from the EMC choose Toolbox and open the Public Folder Management Console.
In the Public Folder Management Console, select the "Default Public Folders" so that the middle window pane populates.  Locate the calendar in that middle pane, right-click and choose Properties.  Head over to the Permissions tab and set the user permissions you want.

No problem, I actually just did that on site here no more than 5 minutes before your question was posted. (but do make sure and mark my answer as correct, I'm trying to earn expert access by answering questions instead of paying for it)
