When we create AD accounts for contractors, temps, etc that need to access the network, we assign the 'Manager' attribute in AD to employee responsible for the user. In many cases, this is a manager.

We've discovered that, AD Accounts that have no Exchange mailbox, email address defined, really anything more than being a security context in our AD domain are showing up as part of the managers Team in the calendar view of Outlook 2010 and 2013.

Is there a way to keep the team view, but not display the AD accounts that are not exchange enabled, mail enabled, have a mailbox or really any Outlook/Exchange/Email configuration whatsoever?
Thank!

Yeah, stumped because AFAIK, there is no way to remove those accounts from the team, unless you assign them a different manager.

If you delete those calendars, do they come back when you restart Outlook? They definitely will come back if you remove and reopen the group, but if they stay gone when you delete them (or move them to a new group, which you keep collapsed) they'll be out of the view when ticking the group name.

Or create a group with the correct members in it, instead of using the team calendar option. Deselect the accounts without calendars then Calendar Groups > Save as New Group. The delete team group.

well, I can't 'delete' them, but I can uncheck them after selecting the team.
not ideal, but is what it is. bummer.
I think we're going to find a different method to track the ID, but it does seem like a bit of a 'bug', or poor choice, to display IDs that do not have mailboxes in the calendar view. You'd think it would be a pretty easy check, only display IDs w/ mailboxes, but not how it works.

Thanks for the time!

how often do the names change? (of the people without mailboxes) A macro could deselect them, but it would be a hardcoded list, so it wouldn't be useful if the list changed often.
