Exchange 2007 - Calendar Permission

We need to achieve the following:

We got 5 employees from the technical service department.  These 5 employees have their own AD account (tech1 to tech5).  But all of these employees need to share 1 mailbox (e.g. technical service mailbox).

The technical service employees need to access ALL employees calendar  (e.g. the technical service mailbox has access to Maria's calendar).

We want to grant the technical service mailbox the access, not the user account itself.

Is this possible with Exchange 2007?

If I grant the AD user "technical service" access to maria's calendar, how can the user tech1 open maria's calendar?

What you need to do is create another Mailbox Called Technical Service, manually configure the account settings for each user.

For calendars, you can simply share it to give access to the Technical Service mailbox only.

Please remember by doing so all have delete rights. Which might backfire some day.


An ideal way would be to create separate account, and share the technical mailbox  mailbox by providing restrictive privileges. (owner, read only etc)

When you configure Outlook are you doing it manually? So that tech1 - 5 are logged on to Technical Service?

Hi Lance

Yes, I configure Outlook manually so they get the "Technical Service" mailbox instead of their own mailboxes.

Once in outlook if you grant technical service access to marias calendar (Shared from Maria's Calender to be quicker) You can simply open up Outlook - then go to Calenders, and click on the "Open a shared Calendar link" there you can choose by typing marias name.
