It seems quite difficult to create a public folder calendar in 2007 from previous versions. My account is a member of the exchange organization admins and the public folder admins but I still cannot create a public folder calendar through outlook. I can create a public folder through the public folder exchange console however there is no option to make it a calendar. I do have the option through outlook but it keeps telling me I don't have permission. Any suggestions

First you to need create one public folder from EMC and then assign full permission to this public folder for your account. After that you can access that folder from outlook and create sub folder and calender.

You can log in as and exchange admin to a desktop that has Outlook installed

From Outlook, right click public folders and choose new folder, type a name. On the “folder Contains” drop down, choose Calendar Items.

If you don't have a desktop to do this on there is a work around.

By default, only administrator have permissions to create new public folders, from Exchange 2007′s GUI, you can navigate to tools>public folder management (SP1 and up only.) You can then create a new public folder.

Once the folder is created, you can use pfdavadmin to give the user or group permission to the folder.

Once the user has permission to create items in the new folder, they can right click it and choose new and setup their own public calendar.
