Creating the Calendar Area

Use

You have to use a calendar that is in the personal folders area of MS Outlook for calendar integration. Furthermore, the personal folders area must be assigned to the mail profile as a service. You can use an existing personal folders area or create a new one.

Procedure

Procedure 1

  1. Open Outlook.

If you have created several mail profiles, log on using the profile in which you want to use the calendar.

  1. Choose File ® New ® Personal folders (pst file).
  2. In the subsequent dialog box, specify the path and file name with the ending PST. You can, for example, copy the proposed file Personal Folders(1).pst.
  3. Choose Create.
  4. Specify the name under which the area is to be displayed in the file list, for example Calendar area.
  5. Choose OK.

Procedure 2

As an alternative to procedure 1, you can proceed as follows. In this case, however, you cannot choose the name of the area yourself. Furthermore, the standard files (inbox, outbox, and so on), which you cannot delete, are automatically displayed to you in this area.

  1. On the tab page Services, choose Add.
  2. Select the personal folders area.
  3. Choose OK.
  4. In the subsequent dialog box, specify the path and file name with the ending PST. You can, for example, accept the proposed file Outlook.pst.
  5. Choose Create.
  6. Choose OK.

If you want to maintain the same calendar in several profiles, add the service to each of these profiles.
