We have a SharePoint 2007 web part, which logs in and displays a users Outlook calendar information via webdav and OWA.

The default OWA URL of one of our users calendar has changed from


Within the standard Outlook client 2007 or 2010 the calendar is named correctly. It's just when accessing from OWA that the name has changed. This is then causing login problems for the web part.

I've logged onto the profile with MFCMAPI and have tried to change the URL back to the standard format (PR_URL_NAME, PR_URL_NAME_A) ANSI value. But it doesn't accept it.

I've still to try the following Outlook switch - outlook.exe /resetfoldernames

Has anyone got any suggestions on how to change the URL back to the standard format? Is it possible somewhere in IIS?

It's not possible to change the code in the web part to accept the changed value for the one user.
