Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am trying to find a quick and easy way to change access permissions (like sharing a calendar or task list) remotely. End user is off site and uses Outlook 2003, I need to permit anther user in the domain access to the first user's calendar.
Is there any possible way to do this remotely WITHOUT Remote Desktop? Can it is be done on the Server (SBS 2003 SP3) somehow? Is there a thrid party app that can help?

    I can't see where in the link provided by Prem that it allow you to share a calendar.. so this is how I would do it.

    1. Try using PFDavAdmin

    2. Give my user "Full Mailbox Access" permissions to the other users account then add their mailbox in my copy of outlook, change the calendar permissions.

    Yes I have been using PFDavAdmin for a few years and it works a treat. Although PF = Public Folders but you can actually connect to user mailboxes upon launching the program.

    Dear All.
    I had answered with a longer answer some time ago. I see that the system did not absorb it unfortunately.
    PFDavAdmin is the proper answer. My singular issue was that I had an older version installed that did not have the function I was looking for.
    Thanks to ormerodrutter for the suggest.

    Still don't understand why (again) ou didn't give me a point for an answer that I know works, and when you say 'pfdavadmin is the correct answer". But there are bigger things in this world to worry about.
