Hi folks, we're using outlook 2003 with exchange 5.5

I have a user who has his mailed delivered directly to
his .PST, but we use his server account as the default
calendar location. We do this for sharing purposes and
because he has a blackberry. The problem is, when he
creates a new calendar entry it drops onto his .PST
calendar, and we also cannot remove that calendar from his
navigation pane, when using the calendar view. Is this by
design? I'm wondering if this is happening because of
the .PST being his default delivery point.

The exact same thing is happening with his Contacts, we
are trying to use the server account as his default
location for contacts.

I'm going to guess that we're forced to use the default
delivery location, but would love to hear that verified,
and if we're not forced in that manner, how do we remove
the unwanted entries in the navigation pane.

Thanks for any help :) John

That's not the way it works. The default calendar is the one in the store
that's acting as the default delivery location. The best solution is to get
rid of the .pst file.
