When you try to view another person's calendar using the Microsoft Exchange Client or Outlook Client, the following error message occurs:

Unable to display the folder. The calendar folder could not be found.


This error is a permission problem with the other user's calendar folder. Permission to view or read another user's folder is optional.

NOTE: By default there are no permissions.


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. In the Microsoft Exchange or Outlook Client, click the user's Calendar folder.
  2. Go to the Properties page of this folder either by right-clicking on the folder or through the File menu.
  3. Choose the Permissions tab to view current permissions. By default you will see the name "Default" with a Role of "none." If the role for Default is modified, it sets the permissions for everyone with access to a Microsoft Exchange or Outlook Client to view the calendar.


This permission problem is the same for all Microsoft Outlook folders, such as the Inbox, Contacts, Tasks, Journal, and Notes folders.
