Calendar Permissions Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010

Our company has Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and clients throughout user Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010.

We have a board room calendar setup, and shared with 2 people setup as Publishing Editors and the Default is setup as a Reviewer. We want everyone to be able to see the calendar appointments, the date/time and content is fine if everyone sees it. BUT, no one else is allowed to enter information on the calendar except for the 2 Publishing Editors.

Here is the problem -

If someone using Outlook 2003 or 2007 has the shared calendar opened in their Outlook, and if they try to add a meeting/appointment, they get an access denied error message. This is normal, and the way it should work.

However if users have Outlook 2010, they are able to ADD appointments to the calendar, even though no permission settings are setup for them. What's even weirder, is that after the user enters the meeting, he cant delete it, he gets a permission/access denied error message.

I checked the Exchange server permissions and cant find anything that would allow this user, or users of Outlook 2010 to be able to enter data. I also checked the calendar properties, and all it shows is the default as a reviewer and 2 people setup as publishing editors. I also made sure no one has delegate control of this account.

Any suggestions?

I'm puzzling over this. Nothing really jumps out at me, but I do have the following thoughts:

1. Are the added appointments actually making it onto the calendar? In other words, can you see them via OWA or some other non-cached source?

2. Do you have an unusual Full Access or Send As permissions on the room?

3. I don't have an Exchange 2007 box is look at this, but in 2010 you also set permissions via policies. Is that the same in 2007? I've attached a pic to show you what I mean. Capture.jpg
