Upgraded outlook from 2007 to 2010 and now I cannot find the shared public calendar on SBS2003

Hi.  I have a SBS2003 Server running exchange.  We share a public calendar as well as a contact list.  We also have a pop email address as our default.  The exchange is to allow us to share a calendar and contacts with a program that manages the law firm.

We are running Outlook 2007 on all our machines (XP & WIN7) except for one I just updated to Office 2010.

There is a "global" calendar that this PC was able to access in outlook 2007, but I cannot find it anywhere in 2010.  It is the mainstay of our business.  

View of "public folders" in 2007  These folders are the same as those in the exchange First administrative group, public folders
 

View of "public folders" in 2010.  These folders are duplicates (it seems) of the users mailbox folders.



We are in the process of upgrading our servers and PCs as well as migrating to OFFICE365 (that is the reason for the 2010 upgrade) but in the interim I need to make sure that we can access the these public folders.  

Please help me to restore the public calendar and contact lists on this PC.  I have been reading and clicking for hours to no avail.

Thank you in advance,

Done and done.  I thank you for your assistance in this.  I guess lack of sleep did not help because this answer was too easy.  I really appreciate your perspective as I would not have thought to "reboot" in my present state of mind.

Again, I truely appreciate your help.
