Sharing Outlook Calendar When Using POP3

Hi,
I am currently using a POP3 e-mail account (i.e. do not have exchange locally). I would like to share my calendar with my co worker and allow him to make appointments for me on my behalf. And add future event s too. How can I do this? Is there any work around for this?

Not using Outlook, at least effectively.  You could use third party calendars, such as Yahoo's.

This question seems to be asked often - here's a thread with an accepted answer from 4 days ago or so.

What version of outlook are you using??  If you are using 2000 or under and the people you want to share with are using 2000 or under, you can share your calendar using "Net Folders"

Microsoft took that feature away with anything above office 2000.

Sorry, again, there really isn't any other than use Exchange.

The only other way to do it is to setup a PST file with a calendar in it, and both access it - BUT, you can't both access it at the same time.  If you try, you'll be told it's in use.  So this is neither a convenient nor in most cases practical way of doing it.

There are other 3rd party programs which allow calendar sharing/viewing.
officecalendar is good, but about $100US per seat (cheaper than exchange though!)
Have a look on www.slipstick.com for other options
