    A customer of ours called up and requested that a shared calendar be removed from everyones outlook. It was a user whos account has been disabled. I have selected the hide the users mailbox from lists but am looking to get it removed completly so that users dont see it in their shared calendars (They can see the folder but have no permissions to open it).
    Is there a simple way to do this without actually deleting the users mailbox? Is there a certain option in the client permissions or something? I was perhaps thinking that the account would need to be deleted but surely not!! :dry

    Ally,

    Sorry, a quick Google didn't come up with anything. If it really needs to be out of sight, could you back up the account and then delete it?

    Thanks for looking, i had a quick search and havent really found anything although possibly found an option to hide the folder. Was also thinking of re-enabling his account, deleteing the shared folder and then disabling it again. I would have thought that this would then remove it from all users outlook too??
    Having the shared folder there poses no problems but the customer would jus rather it wasnt there. If all else fails i could certanily backup up the relevant information and simply delete the account.

    Thanks

    Can I ask why you don't want to delete he mailbox. It's only taking up resources.

    I would say that your answer to re-enable the account and unshare the mailbox is the answer if it has to stay. Otherwise delete it.

    The customer originally wanted the mailbox retained but i spoke to them today and as this was no longer the case i simply deleted it. This will in turn remove the shared calendar from everyones outlook.
    Am also looking to simply remove the entire account as the user will not be returning to the company but he has been using filefinder which i have no knowledge of. My only worries with fully deleting the account were that data he has entered into filefinder may become inaccesible but i doubt it. Better to find out for sure first before doing this :)

    Probably worth changing the password and log into the account to extract the data before you delete the account.
