The "open other user's folder" function is only for default folders. To
access the new shared calendar, another user would have to add the mailbox
with the shared calendar to their profile. Permissions have to be assigned
at both the mailbox and sub-folder levels (i.e. the shared calendar). If the
permissions are set correctly, this will allow access only to the folder in
question. I recommend not letting the end-user set these permissions, as
they tend to err on the side of too much access.

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook & Exchange 2003 - Unable to share new

When a user creates a new calendar to share, the permissions are setup
properly through the properties of the calendar.

Now when the other user trying to view the share, they do the following:

File -> Open -> Other users Folder -> Select the persons name in the GAL

and they receive this error - "Unable to display folder. The calendar
folder could not be found"

Open a shared calendar produces the same result.

When the primary calendar is shared, it works, but not when you create
a new one.

Example: The HR mgr has their personal & primary calendar (not to be
shared), but they also have another one created for employee holidays,
which she wants to share out to management.

In short, how do you share a non-primary calendar to other users?

Thank you,
