What are you trying to share?  If folders and calendars, you will need Public Folders set up on an Exchange server to do that.

I have to state that this works for Outlook 98, but ....

This answer assumes that director fred would like asst dir marvin to have access to
his calendar.



1. Set User mail boxes.

In asst dir Marvin machine do the following

Enter Control Panel
     
         Mail

         microsoft exchange server, properties.

         click on the advance tab.

         The mailbox that you want to view in addition to yours must be shown. If not
          click add and put in the mailbox to be shared. It is important to note that it
         can't be shared without this being done but the permission tab still controls
         who sees what.

2. Permissions on shared Calendar.

In Dir Fred's machine do the following

         Enter Outlook.  

         Highlight the calendar (doing this to the mailbox gives access to everything. doing          this to calendar gives access to only the calendar.)

         Right Click on caendar and click on properties.

         Click on permissions.

          Add asst Dir Marvin to list. highlight him and give him a role. Each role has different
          access levels. I suggest Reviewer which will allow the viewer to see the calendar  
          but not change it.

I hope this helps.....

I have learned that I need MS Exchange Server in order for me to share my Outlook 97.  I am abel to download a trial version of MS Excange Server, however I am not sure which version I require, choices can be found at the following web site.
