Thunderbird deployment and Calendar sharing

Posted on 2006-05-03
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Currently our company uses, IMAP mail with Rackspace.  We host our Linux servers with them.  It works fantastic.  Our desktop users use, Squirral Mail to obtain thier email.  A web client.

Someone from our company has suggested Thunderbird as a email client.  I agreed since we will not need a server in house.  and it will just be installed locally.  Now the users are pushing for shared Calendars.  

Please let me if anyone can give me any suggestions on how I can do the following:

1. Share calendar with my setup above.  Utilizing Thunderbird software. Do I need to store that calendar in a central location, possiblly a WebDav?? setup.  

2. Can anyone suggest how I can go about this.

Any help will be appreciated.  

thank you

              o iMIP support (meeting invitations)
        * Improved CalDAV support
        * Cached calendar support for offline calendar use
        * Device synchronization

    They are only at version 0.1 so ...
