I have a need for the executive group to have a shared calendar to track meetings, events, etc.

Is there a way to do this on Exchange 2003?

How can it be restricted to just the executive group?

would everyone need to be contributors?

thx

Very simple. Open Outlook as administrator, drop to all mail folders, expand public folders, right click on default public folders and create new public folder as "Exec Calendar" (name it whatever you like). Select the folder type as calendar.

Once created, you can right click and assign permissions to people who have access and how much access.

Let me know if you get stuck or if u feel i have missed a step.

Same principle, only thing that changes is folder type should be set to whatever kind of folder you want.

If you use the EMC or powershell, you can't select the type of folder you want.
