Is it possible to have a user account with a calendar, but no mailbox. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I'm guessing the answer to this is no but I'm daring to dream...

    Basically this is a client requirement, but I'm not sure it's possible. They have some user accounts that they want to remove mailbox access to, but still allow them to access their calendar for the purpose of organizing meetings and whatnot. Is this possible?

    Setup is Windows Server 2008 with Exchange 2007.

    Thanks,

    Pete

  • You can't with mailboxes.

    You can use Public Folders. I use them for my organization for classroom scheduling.

  • Problem is without a mailbox you wouldn't be able to get into Outlook to see the shared calendars though, right?

  • Right. You can use OWA.

  • Not with a user account that has no mailbox attached to it.

    I've done some jiggery pokery and basically created a user account that has a sending limit of 0KB and a receiving limit of 10KB so it should be enough to receive calendar invites.

    Seems like the client is content with this. Huzzah!
