Can someone please walk me through or point me toward enabling a Calendar in Sharepoint Services 3.0 to receive appointments via email. I have incoming mail configured and I have followed the instructions here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/enable-and-configure-e-mail-support-for-a-list-or-library-HA010082307.aspx#BMcalendar
To no avail, I am not clear how it created a email for the calendar. I have Exchange 2010 SP1
Enable and configure e-mail settings for a calendar list
- Open the Calendar list for which you want to enable and configure incoming e-mail support.
- Click Settings, and then click List Settings.
- Under Communications, click Incoming e-mail settings.
Note The Incoming e-mail settings link is not available if incoming e-mail support is not in Central Administration.
- In the E-Mail section, choose Yes to enable this list to receive e-mail, and then type the alias that you want to use to send e-mail to this list.
- In the E-Mail Attachments section, choose whether you want this list to archive e-mail attachments.
Note If you choose No, e-mail attachments will be discarded.
- In the E-Mail Security section, choose whether to archive e-mail from only members of the site who can write to the list or to accept e-mail regardless of who sends the e-mail.
Important Archiving e-mail from all senders allows everyone (including unauthenticated users) to write to your library. Because of the potential security risk, you should give this option careful consideration.
- Click OK to save your settings.

Did you configure incoming email on central admin?
Here is a link to help

I did configure incoming email but I did not configure this section:
Directory Management Service
The Microsoft SharePoint Directory Management Service connects SharePoint sites to your organization's user directory in order to provide enhanced e-mail features. This service provides support for the creation and management of e-mail distribution groups from SharePoint sites. This service also creates contacts in your organization's user directory allowing people to find e-mail enabled SharePoint lists in their address book.
To use the Directory Management Service you need to provide the SharePoint Central Administration application pool account with write access to the container you specify in the Active Directory. Alternatively you can configure this server farm to use a remote SharePoint Directory Management Web Service.
Do I need to configure this part? Thank you for the link I am reading through it now.
Thursday, May 10, 2012 4:54 PMHow can I determine what user is Central Administration Application pool identit. I created a service account when I installed Sharepoint is this the account they are reffering to?
Thursday, May 10, 2012 4:55 PMNevermind I jsut read it on the post. Great post by the way!
Thursday, May 10, 2012 4:55 PMYes, since sharepoint needs to know where to create the AD object for the email address that is associated to a list.
Thursday, May 10, 2012 4:58 PMMy Central Adminstration Application Pool Indentity is set to Network Service. Will I need to change this?
Thursday, May 10, 2012 5:39 PMYes.

I have followed the entire post and made all configuration changes. I also followed this post to change the Application Pool Indentity:
When I try to mail enable a calendar I just get a generic error "Error in the application."
Any ideas where I should start troubleshooting?
OU=SharepointGroups, DC=domain, DC=local
Thursday, May 10, 2012 7:18 PMFirst see if there is a new object in the container SharepointGroups in AD. Then check the error logs where central admin is running. Most likely it's an issue with permission creating the new object in AD.

I agree it is a issue with permission and creating a object in the OU. No object has been created in the OU. I changed the administration pool app user to sharepoint.admin
I see this error in the event log. I double checked the process for delegating permissions on the OU and everything is correct.SQL Database 'WSS_Search_NOHSHAREPOINT' on SQL Server instance 'np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$Microsoft##SSEE\sql\query' not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.
Cannot open database "WSS_Search_NOHSHAREPOINT" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'NEBRORTHO\sharepoint.admin'.

Thursday, May 10, 2012 7:33 PMYour app pool account does not have access to the database. please make sure it has access.
Thursday, May 10, 2012 7:45 PMForgive, obviously I am new to sharepoint, how can I go about ensuring the app pool account has permissions to the DB?
Thursday, May 10, 2012 7:48 PMLog into the sql server using the management console, go to security and see if the user account 'NEBRORTHO\sharepoint.admin' exists, if not add, then give permissions to the appropriate database using the User Mapping tab or Server roles Tab.

I am on Sharepoint Services 3.0 stand alone install., it does not have a full blown version of SQL it is all installed locally is it not? How do I go about access it? I have management studio installed but it does not see any instance of SQL on the server'
