    Shortcut to others calendars (2000 SR1)

    We access others calendars/task lists quite a lot. Is there a way to add a shortcut to someone else's folder in the Outlook Shortcut bar.

    This can be done, but with some risk to privacy and security.

    The person who wants to add the shortcut (user A) has to add the other user's mailbox (user [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] to their folder list. (Tools | Services, Exchange Properties, Advanced Tab). Once you see B's mailbox, right drag the calendar to the Outlook bar. You can then go back into Tools and remove B's mailbox.

    User B has to grant at least reviewer permissions to the mailbox and the calendar. I'm pretty sure any folders they create after this step will take on the same permissions.

    Thanks for that, it works but I can't remove B's mailbox, if I do it stops working.
    I don't need to remove it anyway.

    Thanks again

    Quite welcome. For future reference I think I could remove B's mailbox and still have it work because I'm set up in Exchange as a user of it. That's a little different than having permissions granted at the folders level. Good catch!
