exchange 2007 owa calendar permissions

SBS 2008, Exchange 2007

I need to give access to an external company to one of our users calendar via OWA. I have set up a new user and given them free/busy time access. When I log into the calendar via OWA using the external users details, I am unable to see any calendar entries. When I change the permissions to full, I am able to see all entries including detail which is expected. I need to restrict the external user to free/busy view. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance,

For Exchange 2007 specifically to set mailbox calendar permissions use PFDAVEAdmin. This will allow you to easily set calednar permissions for exactly what you are looking for.

Hi Will,

I have just done some more research on this subject and it seems that due to the fact that we are using exchange 2007 the busy/free time is only available via the scheduling screen on the request new appointment page. Therefore, our guy have to make the decision as to whether to allow full access.

Again, many thanks for your prompt response, I will request that the question is no closed.
