Outlook Calendar Share from 2010 to 2007

Someone in my office running Outlook 2010 is trying to share his calendar with 2 others running Oulook 2007. We use Exchange Server 2010. I set up the permissions on the 2010 calendar for each of the other 2007 users as Reviewer on the 2010 user's machine. I have read this is enough permission needed for someone running Outlook 2007 to view the calendar. However, when I use Open a Shared Calendar in the 2007 machines, I get the error "You do not have sufficient permission to open the Calendar folder. You don't have appropriate permission to perform this operation."

I've Googled it, but all I read is people changing the calendar permission to Reviewer to solve the issue. Is there something server-side that can be or needs to be changed? I believe that one of the 2007 users used to have this working, but since the 2010 user (the boss) changed his privacy settings on the server, it stopped working.

Right when you say you set the permissions on the 2010 Users Outlook Profile
How did you go about doing this?

Did you do this by Going into Calendar Properties and Permisisons?
If you did, go back and remove the changes you made
Close and restart outlook

Now go into File>Account Settings>Drop Down
and add the users as Delegates to the calendar
Give them reviewer rights

While here have a look and see if there are already Groups That Mat=y be listed as delegates.

If there are check to see if these 2007 users are memmers of this group
If they are check the permissions of the group

POssibel the group does not have permissions on claendar, so when adding the users individually, they are getting an access denied

After the changes make sure you restart outlook for all users
then test

djsharma,

I had seen those articles, and they basically read the same way. The 2010 user must set the calendar permission to Reviewer for the other 2007 users. I've tried adding the calendar using both methods shown above, but they haven't been successful.
