Change default calendar on a exchange mailbox

Hello,

We are running SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 in out office. For user1 we have two calendars in his mailbox

1. Calendar - the default calendar folder
2. User Calendar - secondary one

Currently if he receives a request for a meeting, and accept it - it goes to Calendar. How do I change that the User Calendar to be default location for appointments?

Thank you

Outlook 2007 and previous

Step 1
File >> Data file Management

click on data file management

set as default


Outlook 2010 and 2013

Step 1
File >> Account Setting >> Account Setting >> Tab Data files

click on account settings

click on data file


To change default data file, elect it and press "Set as Default" button. If you have elected a data file which can be set as default, Outlook will now apprise you to reopen Outlook.

I am talking about having two calendars in one mailbox. It is not about having two mailboxes or 2 pst files
I think this would work
file->Data file management->Click on the personal folder that has the calendar you need to show as default-> Set it as default.
This is for two data files.

I have to calendars in one exchange mailbox.
You can't change the default calendar for a user from the one that is originally part of their mailbox to a different one -- and I'm not sure why you would.

You can, however, create a rule for any item which is a "meeting invitation or update" and "move it to the specified folder" -- and when you click the "specified" option you can select any calendar available within their Outlook.

Only possible answer was that you can't change the default calendar folder with an Exchange Account in Outlook.
