Is there currently any online web calendar services that offer syncing to both MS outlook for windows as well as Entourage for the mac?

I need Calandar, Task lists, Notes, and a public folder for file storage.  I know traditionally this would be done with Exchange server, I also know that Entourage and Exchange do not play nice with each other.  therefor I thought a service might be able to provide this functionality  however I cant seem to find one.   Can you offer any solutions that would ultimatley allow entourage (mac) and outlook (win) to sync.  I do not have access to an exchange server.

any help you could provide would be much appreciated.

Is it really necessary to use MS mail clients? EE is loaded with questions from folks who have lost their mail database, or have some other near fatal issue with MS mail clients. Why not use the OS X mail client which is 100x better, and use iCal with a WebDAV server to share calendars/notes/task lists?

If it were up to me all these pim's would be speaking some universal language,  but i believe in the end it comes down to personal preference on which client to use.  I think i would still be using my old franklin day planner if i werent on the computer so much.  can you tell me more about a webdav server and how i might sync data between MS outlook and ical.  im sure that some of my users are not going to switch easily and would prefer to stay with entourage.  seems to me that an MS product should be able to talk to another MS product   even if there has to be a translator.

They "should" be able to but this is MS we're talking about. They created versions of word on opposing platforms that couldnt even share documents.
The only reason for a WebDAV server is to be able too upload the iCal database and share it. The .mac service is a WebDAV server and may be worth the $100 a year for your users. At least you dont have to run and maintain it.

iCal, via the import menu, can import entourage data, but that's about as close as you'll get.
