This topic explains how to use Web Parts in Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 to open the calendar folder in a mailbox that you are not logged on to.

For help with the most current version of Outlook Web App see Sharing your calendar in Outlook Web App.

Outlook Web Access Web Parts lets you access Outlook Web Access content directly by using a URL.

To use Outlook Web Access Web Parts, both your mailbox and the mailbox that you are accessing through a Web Part must be in the same Active Directory forest.

To perform this procedure, the account that you use must be granted Full Access permissions to the mailbox that you are accessing. You can use Exchange Management Console to grant Full Access permissions to another user's mailbox. For more information, see How to Enable Explicit Logons in Outlook Web Access.

  1. Enter the following URL:

    https://Outlook Web Access URL/owa/SMTP address of the other mailbox/?cmd=contents&module=calendar

    • If you are already logged on to Outlook Web Access by using a user ID that has Full Access permissions to the mailbox, the calendar opens immediately.

    • If you are not already logged on to Outlook Web Access, you receive a logon prompt. If this occurs, log on by using a user ID that has Full Access permissions to the mailbox.
