I don't see anything with the actual error. However, I can tell you this is usually caused by the second user not being set up properly as a delegate for the calendar. Did they do it this way, or did someone try and use the admin console to change their security?

Hello,
Does this error appear when the user attempts to open the calendar or is it when she attempts to add/modify an appointment?

Does this issue persist? It appears to be a temporary error message related to your exchange server.

Perhaps some permissions got changed by accident. Have the user revoke permissions and then make the other person a delegate again.

Hi kfalandays,

the message appears when the users tries to add/modify an appointment.
This message persists every time an entry is made in the users calendar

Thank you

Please let me know if removing the delgation I suggest above works.

Also try running Outlook in safe mode (start, run, "outlook /safe").
