User having problems viewing public folder calendar

We are running Exchange 2000 and have public folders set up. Within the folder, we have a calendar for vacations. One user out of 75 cannot view this calendar. He is set up with even more permissions on the folder than most, but still cannot view it. How do I change this?
Try removing all permissions and re-adding the calendar permissions for this user, specifically the checkbox "folder visible." Also, check the Client Permissions and Directory Rights in Exchange System Manager for the calendar folder under public folders.


MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:

A related problem is that some users, when trying to view a public folder calendar, get a message about cannot view recurring appointment info, whereas others can view and add to these appointments just fine. The solution offered is not great -- i.e., change the recurring appointment -- because all the "exceptions" in the recurring appointment "occurrences" are deleted. This is a design issue that seemingly cannot be avoided. This means all notes about past or future calendar appointments are deleted when one changes anything about the series. Are there other solutions to the error message about recurring appointments?
