I have a disabled user account of a former employee, that other people need access to only that persons calendar.  Typically I give them Full Access permissions, but that also exposes the persons email.  How can I provide access to the users needing the calendar only?

I've used Outlook to add the users as delegates to the persons calendar, and they all have Editor permissions to the calendar, however when i try to open the calendar of the disabled user in the users that need access Outlook, it says "You do not have permission to view this calendar"

In the disabled user account Outlook, when I go to Share the calendar and send it to the people that require access, I get an error saying "Error while preparing to send sharing message".

Do it from the Shell:

Set-MailboxFolderPermission ‘MailboxName:\calendar’ -User BLAH -AccessRights author

Where mailbox name is the name of the mailbox that has the calendar, and BLAH is the name of the user or group that needs permissions.

Don't forget that Exchange caches permissions, so it can take two hours before it works.

Will this automatically add the calendar to the users that are granted access, or would would I need to do on the client end for them to get access to the calendar?

You will need to add it - all that command does is set the permission, nothing else.
