Hi Experts,

We are using MS Outlook 2007 and Exchange 2007.

One of our users cannot create / delete items in shared calendars.
User is listed as "Publishing Editor" in the calendar, Default and Anonymous users have "None" permissions.

The calendar is shared, that user can open it, but gets a permission error when trying to create an event.

Any ideas?

Do you have the option for Publishing Author?

Publishing Editor does not have delete privileges as default.

Publishing Author should allow them to create and delete events as mentioned above.

Hi guys,

That's surprising to me.
According to
http://www.marquette.edu/its/help/emarqinfo/permissions.shtml

"A Publishing Author can create and read folder items and create subfolders but can modify and delete only folder items that he or she creates, not items created by other users." (that's what I need)

and

"The Publishing Editor role has all rights granted to an Owner, except the right to change permissions. A Publishing Editor can create, modify, delete, and read folder items and create subfolders."

So it seems that Publishing Editor has more privileges than Publishing Author.

Anyway, I found the solution:
running outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy
did the trick.

Thanks for your contribution!
