    Outlook 2003 - Setup Shared Calendar?

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to setup a shared calendar in Outlook 2003 and i was wondering if anyone would could give me some advise?

    I have found many bits of 3rd party software that you install on each machine, but is that the best route to go down?

    Cheers all

    Darren

    without exchange , you really dont use outlook to its fullest potential.

    do you all have pop3 accoutns or somethign ?

    its not as expensive as you'd think ( dependiong on the number of staff you have )

    Hi,

    Well we have around 15-20 people on PC's. The rest are all on Mac's.

    Yes we are using a pop 3 server, via Mandrake Linux.

    Ah throwing MAC's in to the bundle doesn't help.

    earlier versions of outlook supported a rudementry calender sharing which was officially horrible.

    Its one of the features that exchange does pretty well.

    I'm guessing that your budget woudn't streach to SBS + enough calls for 20 people ( would be between a grand and £1500 for software , and you'd need somethign to run it on.


    all however isn't lost , have you thought about a shared calender application such as sunbird ?
    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird.html

    if you have mod_dav installed on your linux server you can use it to publish and share your Mozilla Calender ( sunbird )

    I'm sure this woudl work for the mac guys too !

    We use a database called Filemaker. From what i now understand if i get the Filemaker plugin then i'll be able to publish my calendar.

    In the mean time i have managed to share our calendar via OfficeCalendar.

    Don't forget if you can afford exchange then the mac's have Microsoft Entourage which also gives full Outlook connectivity, ie shared calendars, address books etc etc
