Exchange 2010 Calendar permission problems

I've recently migrated an SBS2003 server to an R2008 Server with Exchange 2010 SP1 installed.  It went pretty well with not too many issues but I have one user who for some reason cannot see information in peoples calendars even though the the default sharing policy has been set to share  "Calendar sharing wiith free/busy information plus subject, location, and body, Contacts sharing".
I have set this user to be an owner (userA) of the relevant calendars (userB) he needs using the followingpower script:
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity userB@mail.com:\Calendar -User userA@mail.com -AccessRights Owner

When I check the user permisison level at he server it shows hom having Owner permission of the calendar.

If I check his Outlook 2010 calendars on his workstation it still only allows for viewing of basic free/busy time.

I have also tried pushing a permission share from the 2 user calendars directly and via OWA as the users that he deserately needs to see.

No-one else in the domain has problems seeing calendars as they have been defined so I am just stuck.
I really need to get this user seeing calendars.
If anyone has any ideas at all I'll gladly give them a try.

Have you tried accessing the calendar (as UserA) from a different machine? Sounds like there is a problem with his MAPI profile. I would also suggest disabling cache mode and give that a try.

If either of the above worked, then you should consider deleting and recreating the MAPI profile.

Thanks,
Raj

I have finally got him to log in to another machine and that machine's calendaring works!
I'm having trouble getting him to  allow me access to his machine :( - as soon as  I  can I'll try deleting the profile as I am pretty sure that will work.
I will let you know shortly

Thanks so much for your help.  Being a solo IT operation for an office of 40 it isn't easy to 'brainstorm'.  I've finally been able to get him off the old machine onto a temporary machine and it works perfectly.
Sorry for the wait to get back to you - amazing how an urgent item can be put with by a director! - it looks like it was a corrupt profile
