I have a SBS 2008 server.  I currently have Exchange 2007 running and operational.  I want to allow a call center access to my calendar so they can schedule appointments for me when calls come in.  This is what I've done so far:
1. Created username and password for callcenter (outlook 2010)
2. logged into my exchange account --> calendar --> right clicked my calendar --> properties -->shared calendar with callcenter. (outlook 2010)
3. logged out of my exchange account (outlook 2010)
4. logged into callcenter exchange account (outlook 2010)
5. accepted request and added my exchange account to outlook(outlook 2010)
6.  I am now able to view my calendar from outlook 2010 under the callcenter account
7.  Logged into OWA using callcenter's account
8.  I can not view my calendar within owa
9.  Researched "How to view shared calendar via OWA?"
10. Found links describing to options:
a) https://owa.domain.name/username/calendar
b) https://owa.domain.name/username@domainname.com/calendar
c) https://owa.domain.name/username@domainname.com/?cmd=contents&f=Calendar%
11. All three links didn't work even if I logged in as callcenter
I have checked -->(Read)full details--> (delete items) own --> Write (Edit all) --> (other) Folder Visible under calendar properties for my exchange account.

What am I doing wrong?  Why can't I see my calendar in OWA?

This is the error I receive when attempting to use:

The folder path specified in the Outlook Web Access URL does not point to an existing folder. Or you may not have sufficient permissions to view it.

Ok, just a quick though here. Can you drop the percentage sign at the end of your URL and try it?

Nope doesn't work
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Oh well, i just tested this in my virtual test lab and confirmed that it should work with the steps that you've taken, so the problem is somewhere else.  Do you have all the updates installed on your server and the SP3 installed for Exchange?

If you grant the user full rights to your mailbox can you open the mailbox then?

@vahiid - I believe so but I'll have to log in later and check
@Radweld - I gave user ownership and still no!

I have just tested it with my lab on exchange 2007 you can access his calendar by using following way:-
1. Log in to your call center account via owa
2. Just open new tab in IE and paste this link:- https://owa.yourdomain.com/owa/you@yourdomain.com/?cmd=contents&module=calendar
3. change yourdomain.com to your owa url
4. change you@yourdomain.com to your e-mail id
and you will be able to view your shared calendar under call center account
it works 100% and tested

This is what I continue to get, just like I was saying before:
The folder path specified in the Outlook Web Access URL does not point to an existing folder. Or you may not have sufficient permissions to view it.

I have verified the permissions by the above thread!  I will play with this tomorrow.  I'm going to create a new email account and try the calendar link.  I'll inform you of my progress!  Is this the only way to view from OWA?

although the other two were able attempting to help the answer they provided was close but not the answer.

I found this to be the answer to my problem.  Another words continue to play with it and you will resolve it.
