Cant change calendar background color


P

pd

Hello. I am on a Windows xp pc running Outlook 2003 all patched up in a
windows/exchange client/server environment. I have ownership rights to
another exchange mailbox. I just need to know if there is a way that I can
change the background color of that secondary calendar so that it is
different from my own calendar. The help menu in Outlook says > on the Tools
menu, click Options, and then click Calendar Options. Under Calendar options,
in the Background color list, click the color that you want. Easy enough.
However, even if I put the focus on the secondary calendar and change the
color it also changes the background color of my own calendar. Is there a way
to keep the existing color of my calendar and change the color of a calendar
that I have ownership rights to? Any help is greatly appreciated.

if you go to your tools, options, calendar options menu and uncheck the
option to use the same color for all calendars then uncheck the other
calendar and recheck it, it should be the next available color.

This setting only applies to your calendar - you can't select the second
calendar and choose a color for it. You choose a color for your calendar
only.
