information.  The KB's talk about it as well as the help files (as I recall;
it's been a long time since I looked)
Basically, to open it in a web page, you need CDOEX type of programming
similar to what you get with OWA to open the page.  It's a lot easier in
Exchange 200x to link to a public folder via the web (it's a selling point).

To use a link that opens their Outlook, you would post a link like
<outlook:\\Public  <outlook:\\Public Folders\All> Folders\All Public
Same as you'd mail it.

Subject: [exchangelist] Easy question - I hope

Hello all,

   I am running Exchange 5.5.  
   My department has created an intranet web page for the user community to
view.  We have a team Calendar in Public Folders that is shared out for
everyone in the community to view.   How can I provide a link on a web page
to a public folder?  I do not want to have to just provide a path for them
to navigate to.  I would like for them to be able to simply click on a link
that will either:
1. Launch Outlook and open the public folder location automatically
2. Lauch a web browser that will display the calendar information.

Can anyone assist or provide a KB article about this.  I can not seem to
find anything.
