We are currently using outlook express, but we want to use the calendar feature of outlook.  How would I configure this?  Also, if we are on a network, how would I share the calendar across the office?

Greetings, YLaw !

You can use the Outlook at the same time as Outook Express.  But you have to download and install Outlook. Open Outlook and setup your calendar.  Here is how to share your calendar without an exchange

Outlook is not free. Student version may cost a little less.  Try to uninstall and reinstall your version of Outlook.

YLaw,

No, installing Outlook will not affect Outlook Express.   When installing Outlook, the install processs will prompt you to import the OE accounts and emails.  You can choose yes or no.
