Public Folders - Calendar - Missing properties tab(s)

Hello all,

I have a user who browses in outlook (2010) to her company's public folders to view multiple shared calendars. On some of them, she can right-click and go to properties, then click the summary tab. In there is an option to add the calendar to her address book. This option however isn't available in all calendars for her (but are for other users). Instead she sees a permissions tab, which shows her as the owner of the calendar(s) in question.

Any insight on how I can get this calendar added to her contacts?

If you can maybe give me a little more details. I will be trying to research into this a little more so I can get this resolved and help you out.

I finally figured out that if a particular user has 'owner' level permissions to a calendar in question, then they are presented with a 'permissions' tab instead of a summary tab.

If i change the permissions to a publishing editor instead, then the user's permissions tab disappears and a summary tab appears. In the summary tab, the user is then able to use the 'add' button to add the calendar as a personal contact. Unfortunately this method is rather messy, and the naming convention is terribly cryptic.

I've found that the easiest way to set up contacts for public folder calendars is simply to open the public folder management console on the exchange server, right-click the calendar in question, then click the 'mail-enable' option. This creates an email address for the calendar and adds it to the Global Address list.

I finally found the solution after much research and testing on existing exchange servers in my environment.
