Consider the following scenario:
- User A has delegate permissions or editing permissions to the calendar of User B.
- You hide User B's mailbox from the global address list (GAL).
This behavior is by design.
To work around this behavior, do one of the following:
- Use Outlook on the web to access the calendar.
- Grant User A Full Access permission to User B.
- Implement GAL segmentation. For more information, see Address book policies.
- Add User A as a contact in the local address book. To do this, follow these steps:
- On the server that's running Exchange Server, unhide the hidden account (for User B) in the GAL.
- On the delegate’s computer (for User A), go to the address book, locate the account that was previously hidden, right-click the account, and then select Add to Contacts.
- Hide the account from the GAL on the server that's running Exchange Server.
- On the delegate’s computer (for User A), do the following:
- Open the calendar, right-click My Calendars, point to Add Calendar, and then click Open Shared Calendar.
- Click Name.
- In the Address Book box, change the address book from the GAL to the user's local contacts.
- Select the contact that you added in step 2, and then click OK.
