LSUMail: Calendar Sharing Issues


Calendar Sharing Problem

When trying to share your LSUMail Calendar you get an error message about "permissions".
 

Option 1: Possible Reason & Solution

Reason 1:
  • The person you are trying to share with is incorrectly specified.  Check to make sure that the e-mail address of that person is of the format PAWS_ID@lsu.edu (ex. mtiger2@lsu.edu) and NOT some other format like PAWS_ID@campus.lsu.edu or PAWS_ID@tigers.lsu.edu.
     
  • You can only share with someone whose e-mail address ends in @lsu.edu AND has a mailbox on the LSUMail system.
     
  • It is best to share your calendar with a person by picking them out from the Global Address Book.
