Recently upgraded from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.
We have a calendar in Public Folders that was accessed by employees in other counties besides our own. I set up users on our previous mail server AD for these people and they were able to access this public folder item using OWA ( http://ServerIP/public/calendar_name/?cmd=contents&view-monthly
). It prompted for user name and password and took them directly to the calendar and only to this calendar.
With Exchange 2010, this shortcut no longer works. If I (as an Exchange mailbox user) log on to OWA, I can get the shortcut to the public folder
When we use this shortcut and try to log on as one of the remote users, we get the message that a mailbox could not be found for the user. I do not want a full Exchange account & mailbox for these users. I only want them to be able to access this one calendar. Since Exchange 2010 now splits the AD & Exchange users, I'm not sure how to handle this.
I did find that if I create a Mail User, they show up in the Mail Contacts listing. It will then accept their login with OWA for the public folder calendar but I get an error msgs that my Outlook Web App address is out of date.
ions for an Exchange 2010 newbie would be greatly appreciated!
