Correction    Exchange mailbox, not Outlook mailbox.
Everything works better when the primary mail storage location is the
Exchange mailbox.

So her Outlook mailbox is not the primary mail delivery location?
If not, make it so, then import holidays.  To work offline, setup an OST,
not a PST.

I have a user running Outlook 2003 on XP with latest service packs and
updates.  She cannot see any holidays listed in her calendar that is
associated with the Exchange mailbox.  She can see holidays in her
"Personal" calendar but she wants to use the exchange mailbox calendar.  She
has tried importing the holidays (Tools/Options/Calendar Options/Add
Holidays).  It goes through as if the holidays have been added and even
claims "Holidays for the United States are already installed, do you want to
install them again?" but then no holidays are displayed after she says
"Yes"(Running Exchange server 2003 on WIndows 2003 server also with latest
updates and Windows SP1 and Exchange SP2). 
Any suggestions?
Also, if holidays have been imported twice, is there a way to clean up the
calendar and delete duplicate holidays?  (I was testing on another
workstation and that is now showing all holidays in duplicate!).
