Can Exchange calendar sharing be automated using the SetPerm utility?

Is it possible to automate Exchange Server calendar sharing for newly created Active Directory accounts using the SetPerm utility? Our expert weighs in.

I have a follow up question to " Set up read-only access for all Exchange Server calendars with the SetPerm utility."

Is there a way to change the default role from None to Reviewer for a new Active Directory (AD) user account? Using this ability, in conjunction with the SetPerm utility, would allow Exchange calendar sharing for every AD user that currently exists. Plus it would enable newly created AD users' calendars to share automatically in the future.

This is a good question. I have never heard of anyone doing this and I don't think it is possible.
