Exchange 2010

I'm using Exchange 2010. Most of my clients are using the outlook 2010 to access shared calendars and have no problems. However my users with Outlook 2007 do not have the 'Open Shared Calendars' option displayed in Outlook.
The permissions are set correctly and prior to several previous MS updates this option WAS displayed in Outlook.
Is there a way around this?

This can be related to a question asked:  Exchange and Outlook 2007

The problem is office (aka Outlook 2007).  Exchange 2010 is designed for Office 2010 and the permissions structure was changed.  That's why you are most likely seeing the issues with shared calendars etc.  Outlook 2007 has an issue with seeing free/busy time and if you want to put up with it, the users have to request shared calendar permissions from the owner of the calendar.  Various fixes state grant Full Access but I honestly would not want users to have full access to other users calendars.  I would suggest upgrading to Office 2010 but the above related question link is a work around

I was afraid of that. I have been using  that solution for my Power users but hoped to find a solution for other 2007 installs. I still find it odd that the option was formally listed and then vanished after MS updates.

Thanks Nick
