Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2007 calendar issues

I have users that should have access to some vacation calendars that are in public folders but they only way they can get to them is through Public Folders.   Why aren't they showing up in the My Calendars?    When they finally get in there then they disappear and then the only way to get to them is through Public Folders.   They should show up in My Calendars so the user and select them, If they need to show them.

you might have to manually add them to your favorites list

As per your requirement I have search and I think its not the best solution which I found. Basically there is no way to do this via the options but instead the holiday entries can be copied and pasted from one to the other.

Easiest way to do this and get all the entries in one hit is to place your original calendar in view "By Category", select the Holiday category and copy to the clipboard. Load up the other calendar and paste the entries there. Not perfect but as one helpful user on the internet pointed out "its always been like this". Not really sure why it has to continue to be so though  Still hopefully this may help someone out in the future.

Further, you may also try these steps:

In Outlook, Mail section, if the Public Folders section is not displayed by default in the left pane, click on the icon near the bottom of the pane to show more folders.
- Navigate to the Public Calendar within the Public Folders section.
- Right-click the name of the shared calendar.
- Select Add to Favorites.
That Public Folder Calendar will now automatically be listed in the Calendar section.

I understand how to manually add them to the Favorites.   I just don't understand why I have to add them every time I go into Outlook.  I guess I was hoping that since you selected them to Favorites that they would keep showing up in my "Other Calendars list" the next time that I went into Outlook.
