publish Public folders to the intranet and set them to scroll through each one

I urgently require a solution to display 15 training rooms that are public folder calendars on the intranet.  What I would like is for a display screen in building to scroll through each one in turn.  But how do I get the information from Exchange 2003 public folders to the intranet automatically?

Something like this (save the text into a .htm file, and then open it).  I have only added the URLs for 3 fictitious calendars - you will need to supply your own.  The delay here is n * 5 * 1000 milliseconds = n * 5 seconds, change that to whatever you need.


<html>
<script language="JavaScript">
function doLocation(URL)
{
  document.all.iframe1.src=URL;
}
function doView()
{
  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar1/')", 1 * 5 * 1000);
  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar2/')", 2 * 5 * 1000);
  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar3/')", 3 * 5 * 1000);
  // add the rest of the calendars here.
  setTimeout("doView()", 15 * 5 * 1000);
}
</script>
<body onload="doView();">
<iframe id="iframe1" name="iframe1" width="100%" height="100%"/>
<body>
</html>

Actually, you wouldn't need a delay on the first one:

  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar1/')", 0);
  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar2/')", 1 * 5 * 1000);
  setTimeout("doLocation('http://servername/public/calendar3/')", 2 * 5 * 1000);

Also, in that last example

  setTimeout("doView()", 15 * 5 * 1000);

The 15 should have been 16 (i.e. 1 more than the number of calendars), but with no delay on the first view, 15 is okay now.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Do you know whose permissions this is using to access the public folders?

If it didn't ask you to log on, then it will be using Integrated Authentication, which means it will be using the account of whoever logged onto the workstation running the browser.  It depends what kind of authentication method is configured on your Public virtual directory, and what kinds of permissions are actually set on the folders in Outlook.
