Outlook Shared Calendar
We are using Outlook 2003 to access e-mail on Exchange (SBS 2003). When we atempt to open a shared calendar, the name we enter is converted to an e-mail address from the contact list (which is the same as the mailbox name in Exchange) but we get an error message saying that the user does not have a mailbox in Exchange. However, if we use a name that is not in the contacts list, it will share the calendar. The mailbox names are our first names and the e-mail address are firstname@ourURL.com. We have one user running Outlook 2007 who doesn't have the problem. Any idea what might be causing this to happen?

    The e-mail addresses are in a contact list and the global address list and, as I mentioned before, the calendar can be shared if the name is not in a contact list. For example, person A has person B in their Outlook contact list (it's also in the global address list) and connot share person B's calendar. I do not have person B in my contact list and am able to share person B's claendar. So I'm not sure I understand your answer.
