If you're using Outlook against an Exchange server, you can share folders between users. This can be done via a few different UI entrypoints - you could go to Tools | Options | Delegates and add a user, or you could right click on a folder and choose Permissions. The target user ('delegate') can then open that folder via File | Open Other User's Folder, or also via OWA by entering in the direct URL to the calendar - http://server/exchange/myboss/calendar.
What to do, however, if the permissions tab on the calendar folder is missing? I ran into this earlier this week, and some Outlook MVPs clued me in.
A couple of things to check:
In my case, my problem was the first one above. These folks are great.
Thanks! I just had this problem, then remembered your entry.
I was actually online at the time (Outlook 2003 showing 'Connected'), but had rebooted the Exchange server earlier on. Going into Offline mode then reconnecting sorted it out.
I'm trying to share a calendar out as a subfolder, much like your example "myboss/calendar". I can see it if we use webaccess is there anyway the delegated user can see this from the regular client. We don't want to put the "myboss" folder below inbox, it's a root folder just below 'mailbox'. Thanks
I have a bit of an off topic question.
When I want to look at my bosses calendar I go to http://server/exchange/myboss/kalender - he use a Danish Outlook client but my other boss use an Enlish Outlook klient so here a have to go to http://server/exchange/myotherboss/calendar. Luckily for me we only use Danish and English software, so it only take two guesses.
Is there any way to solve that problem? The answer: "Only use English software." does not count. ;-)
Absolutely - see http://blogs.msdn.com/exchange/archive/2004/03/02/82745.aspx.
I work at a helpdesk, at the helpdesk have our own mailboxes but we also a helpdesk mailbox that we all share. The problem occurs with the helpdesk mailbox, mail will be open
and noone takes ownership of who open the mail.
is there away to track who opens the mail in the helpdesk exchange mailbox.
