Exchange 2007 - giving user read access to calendar but not mailbox

Normally would either give user the necessary rights in AD or if full access use exchange management.

BUT, of course, this gives access to entire mailbox. What I want is to give read access to the calendar but NOT the inbox at all.

Best way to do this - Leave AD well alone and set permissions on mailbox itself in outlook?
Assuming way it works is that any exchange permissions are taken into account but if there is nothing then these permissions are used?

Hey bertiebigb,

 You can selectively provide mailbox access rights to a particular user with a powershell cmdlet Add-MailboxFolderPermission <Identity>:\calendar  -AccessRight PublishingEditor –User <Identity>
~Courtesy http://o365info.com/folder-permission-powershell-commands/
Or you can script your mailbox permission from http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ScriptCenter/19b98a56-42aa-4695-b07c-335d8322b64e/ .

Feel free to revert back for further queries

Thanks

Thanks and this works the same as if the user assigned the permissions themselves in outlook?

And as above, dont add any permissions in AD/exchange and just do this?

You should have proper permissions for the cmdlets to execute properly, you cannot perform the same being a limited user. Unless you haven't restricted administrative access to limited people in your AD. If you are an administrator or have proper privileges  then try  Add-MailboxFolderPermission <Identity>:\calendar  -AccessRight PublishingEditor –User <Identity>  cmdlet .

Additional Information all folders in outlook exchange are normal folders with the normal possibilities like folders with NTFS. Maybe that helps to understand
