Looks like the permissions is corrupted or not added from the GAL correctly. Some users accidentidly add from the offline GAL. I would remove the user, add in from GAL, give correct permissions and have the user delete the old calendar and add in fresh.

Dear User

  • Firstly, you need to check that the mailboxes should not be in Cache exchange mode.
To do this: Uncheck "Use Cache Mode"
  1. Open Microsoft Outlook application.
  2. Go to File > Account Settings. From the drop down menu, select Account Settings.
  3. The Account Settings window will appear. Once in here, go to the "Change" option.
  4. This will bring another window up. Select the "More Settings" option at the bottom of the window.
  5. Click the "Advanced" tab, and uncheck the box next to "Use Cached Exchange Mode" as shown below.
  6. Once you are finished, click "Apply."
Close and reopen Outlook and test to see if the issue is resolved.

  • If it doesn't workout then remove the user's outlook profile along with removing some app-data folders. And remove the Outlook folder from Userfolder\Appdata\local\Microsoft & Userfolder\Appdata\roaming\Microsoft & reboot Outlook.

Thanks & Regards

GAL = Global Address List, default with Exchange. Usually it's just the users in the account and other resources.

Exchange in Outlook sometimes has the "offline" as default in the address book and when you add/change permission and permissions don't work always across because that is offline only. Switch and add the real Global Address List and that should fix it. Does for me every time.
