Creating a new Calendar and sharing/giving permissions isn't working

Hello,
 
We've just implemented Exchange/Outlook 2010.  I am having problems creating a new calendar and sharing it.  I create a new calendar under Open Calendar -> Create New Blank Calendar.  When I try to share it by clicking on Share Calendar, then entering an email address in "To" then sending it, I get this error message: Error while preparing to send sharing message.  So I work around this by going to "Calendar Permissions" then adding the user and giving them "reviewer" permissions.  However, when the user tries to open this calendar under Open Calendar -> Open Shared Calendar it cannot be found.

Appreciate any help I can get!!

By the way, the calendar I'm trying to share is the TEST calendar in the above screenshot of my Folder List.

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

I gave review permissions to multiple users. They tried to "open shared calendar" and could not find it. As a test, one of those users created a new calendar and gave me permissions and I could not connect to his either.

In my comment above "They tried to "open shared calendar" and could not find it" should be "They tried to "open shared calendar" and could not find the TEST calendar.  Sorry about the lazy writing.

Are those users able to work in the same fashion within themselves ?

It seems that none of us can access each others' calendars we create and give permissions to.

Exchange is SP 2.  There is no SP on Outlook.  The Default right is None and the Anonymous is None.

Is that the same to Calendar ? I dont think so and if Default and Anonymous is none not sure how that will work for anyother user to access as their name should be listed in there

Screen shotI think I misunderstood what you are asking.  It is the same calendar.  You had asked what was the Default rights.  I thought you literally meant the Default name under Permissions - which is set to none.  I have given permissions to other users as shown in the embedded screen shot.

Thanks,
Winona

We were able to solve the issue.  The EWS virtual directory was not pointing to the correct internal url.  It was pointing to the external.  It now works.

Thank you, Rancy, for your time!
