Cannot Publish to Shared Outlook Calender

Got a weird problem today.

Running SBS 2008 server w/ Exchange 2007.PC's in Question have Win 7 w/ Outlook 07.

We have three shared calenders between 3 people. For simplicity I'll name them A, B and C.

Normally A,B and C can post on each others calenders but today A and B cannot post on Calender C.

Even though on PC's A and B it shows as posted it just does not show up on PC C.

I added my self with the same permissions (Editor) and can post on calender C with no issues. (Shows on Calender C on both PCs)

But for the three users I have tried so far to un-share, then re-share and re-setup permissions as Editor but still does not get posted.

Is there some thing else I should be looking at ??

(Setup sharing from within Outlook as well as using tool PFDAVAdmin but no luck)

    Still stumped by this.

    Does not work in cached exchange mode but works perfectly in online mode. No meeting request is received at the inbox as well unless the outlook is in online mode.

    So far I can see that cached exchange mode has actually stopped updating altogether for the two users.

    I have tried deleting and re-synching the users profiles in outlook but still the same.

    Online mode everything is okay but cannot figure out why cached exchange mode has stopped synching altogether.

    i.e. Sent email is not actually sent, when switched to online mode it's like that email was never created + New emails are not received unless in online mode.

    Re Creating all the profiles one by one seems to have solved the problem with calenders and sending and receiving emails. Although some of the users now have older missing emails at least this problem is solved.

    Switching to online mode helped diagnose the issue but had to recreate all profiles to get rid of issue completely.
