Deleting a Calendar in MS Outlook 2010

I would like to be able to delete a calendar associated to an account. This was an available function in 2003. Can this be done in 2010? Thank you.

Did you just need to remove the 'Other Calendar' from your Calendars list? If so, right-clicking and choosing Delete Calendar should be available to you still.

If you meant to actually delete another Calendar of an attached Mailbox for which you have sufficient rights (and the Calendar in question is not the main, default Outlook Calendar), you should be able to do so from the Folder List view. Expand the Mailbox of the account in question and then right-click on the Calendar in question and choose Delete Calendar.

It is the calendar that is associated to the specific account. We have a general email account that we want to use specifically for email. Multiple people have access to this account. We do not want them using the calendar associated to the shared account. It is the primary calendar I am trying to delete.

Would simply denying them permissions work to fulfill this function? How are they accessing the shared Inbox? Do they have access from the File > Open > Other User's Folder path? If so, just allowing them full access to the Inbox and not the Calendar should resolve this as per the scenario that it sounds like you're trying to achieve.

Yobri,
   I will have to get the Exchange team to open this up for me. I will get back to you. But I think you are on to something by not allowing full access to the Calendar.

Thank you,
Kelly

Yorbi,
     They are using the following to access the other account...
File > Account settings > Account settings (again) > Double click the user’s primary email account from the list > More settings > Advanced > Add secondary email account (the calendar is associated to the secondary email account).

Have your Exchange admins either hide or disallow (via permissions) the Calendar in question as it sounds like all of the users have Owner (or Pub Ed or Editor higher level rights) level rights to this Mailbox.

Which makes sense but our Exchange admin claims to not have the ability to hide just a calendar

Do the users need to access only the Inbox or other folders in this Shared Mailbox as well (Contacts, etc.)? If only the Inbox, the best approach would not be to provision global permissions but rather full permissions to the Inbox alone (and maybe Reviewer permissions at the Folder List Mailbox level so that the Shared Mailbox could be added to their Folder Lists accordingly).

They need to access the Inbox and the Contacts only.

Brian GeeCommented:
How many users require access? Assigning explicit permissions is the best means of accomplishing this. Revoke global perms, designate from the shared account Owner/Pub Ed/Editor (whichever fits your needs) perms for Inbox and Contacts folders for the users in question (or if many, creating a security group and then adding that group to perms). Each user, after adding the Mailbox to their Outlook clients, should be able access the shared account's Inbox and Contacts folders.

This approach requires adding perms at the Mailbox level so that users are able to expand the shared account's Mailbox from their Folder Lists. Reviewer level perms are sufficient.
