Question about sharing Outlook

I have two related questions about Outlook 2000.

1. Using MS Exchange, can one set up a common/shared PST file that resides on an Exchange server and have users share this over the Internet? (So if user 1 enters an appointment other users can see it.)

2. Same scenario but to have the various users information sync?

If these can be done, how would the performance be?

If you use your mailbox instead of PSTs you can share your personal calendar with other users. Also, you could setup a Public Folder containing appointment items that multiple users could post in.

How about Contacts (in both eMail and Public folders)?

Same goes for contacts and most other Outlook items (the journal is the only folder type that has 'issues')
