    We are using Exchange Server
    Some staff in our executive branch have brand new laptops (lucky guys) with Office 2007[Of07]. They are creating calendars which need to be shared with other employees, most of which are running only Outlook 2003 [OL03].

    Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
    IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
    Calendars:
    ---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
    Group:
    ---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
    Permissions:
    ---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
    ---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
    ---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
    ---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3



    All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

    OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

    Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?



    Thank you.
