It may be possible to transfer ownership to another member of your domain only if you on an exchange platform and the calendar is not your default cal.

Simply open your Outlook 2007 > Calendar. Select the calender from the calender list and right click it to get to the properties window. Once the properties window opens select the permissions tab. here you will be able to add anyone to give permissions to. Only the original owner can give ownership to another user.

Hope this helps.

Will this work, if the previous owner leaves the company, and the corresponding email address is deleted? In other words, is such a transfer irrevocable and irreversible? And further, can th enew owner transfer it to another person in a similar manner?

If you are unable to log into the owners mailbox to assign owner permissions to another user than the calendar will not be able to be transferred.

Thanks. That sounds logical.

Suppose the previous owner sent you a copy of the calendar as an email attachment.

Can a new person take the information there in, and recreate the calendar? Or simply take the ownership of the attachment and convert it into a calendar?

If he sent it to you in a CSV file, you can just import the file into Outlook. You will then have a copy of the Calendar in your Outlook.

To add, once you have the calendar imported you should be able to share that calendar with any member of oyur domin or copy past the contents of that calendar to a secondary calender of which you are the owner of to assign permissions to those you shared it with.

Hope this helps.

No, she sent it in the Outlook format. Can I convert it into a CSV file? (I am going to try it - now that I know the calendar can be in such a format)
