Private Appointments - Outlook 2003 and 2007



We are currently in the process of migrating from Outlook 2003 to
Outlook 2007. There seems to be a problem where a mailbox owner is
using Outlook 2003 and their secretary is using Outlook 2007. The
manager has checked the box fot the delegate to be able to view
privvate items, however, they just show up as private appointment.

I've seen several postings, but they all refer back to the following:

KB 949751 - When trying to install, the package says the update is
already there. Further research showed that it was installed with:

KB 952142 - I do see this in the updates area in Add/Remove Programs.

Unfortunately, the 2007 user still is unable to view the manager's
private appointments. If she logs on to a workstation with Outlook
2003, she can see them.

Any thoughts?

Apart from hurry up and get them all on the same version, no.

I have not seen any workarounds mentioned - there are other challenges with
a mixed 2003/2007 environment as well. For example, Word's ability to Mark
as final does not work in 2003 so they can still edit the docs.
