Slipstick.com used to have instructions for sharing calendars via the web,
without Exchange Server, but when I went there now, they seem to have
replaced those instructions with two programs ... It looks like they both
have free trial versions, so you might want to see if they are within your
budget (I'm sure they are WAY cheaper than Exchange Server).


Also, you may get more answers to this question if you specify which version
of Outlook you are using.

Subject: [mso] Outlook calendar sharing

I'm setting up a new office system with colleagues in a remote location.
We'd like to be able to view each other's calendars (and possibly contacts)
and update from both locations.

We are currently working with different versions of Outlook and we don't
have Exchange Server as they are standalone installations.

Does anybody have any experience of using the MSO Internet Free/Busy Service
who could enlighten me about how good or bad it is?  Does it only publish
free/busy times or is it possible to view calendar details?  And more
importantly perhaps where on earth I find it? LOL

Our alternative is to set up something via an online group calendar perhaps
but that's less likely to be useful for us.

Thanks in anticipation.
