Shared calendar not syncing often enough

A shared calendar in Outlook is not syncing often enough.  I have tried setting the "Send and Receive" to automatically update every 30 minutes, but that does not seem to fix the issue.  Any ideas?  BTW, we are running Exchange 2010 in a SBS 2011 environment.

Is this issue happening on specific machine?  Check if you see the same behavior on another PC.

If not then most probably it is not shared mailbox problem it could be machine specific. Try to repair reconfigure the outlook profile of the affected user.

No one else has been complaining about this issue.  I tried renaming the ost file and removing the profile and setting up a new profile.  Once logged in it created a new ost file.  At first things seemed to be better, but as I monitored it over the weekend, I noticed that it still was not updating every 30 minutes as I had set it to do.  The only way it would sync on command was to go into the Send and Receive and click on the "Update Folder".
