Creating public folder links on intranet

Hi.  I am in the process of using Dreamweaver to create an intranet (I am a novice) for my company and one of the things we'd like to do is add  links to public folders on our Exchange 2003 server.  The public folder is a shared calendar.  It's so we can schedule our meeting rooms.  We'd like to have links on the intranet so employees can click it to see if their desired time slot is available in this particular meeting room.  Users can easily browse now in Outlook to view the meeting room calendar without issue.  I've tried dragging and dropping the calendar to my desktop to see if a shortcut is created.  It creates an .xnk file which windows does not recognize and it prompts me to search the web for an application..  We are using mostly Oultook 2003 but have quite a few Outlook 2007 users also. If anyone has any suggestion, I would greatly appreciate the help.  Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tenrags,

    This is not a novice-level request.  You are creating basic HTML in Dreamweaver, but you need to be able to handle creating a gateway to the Exchange server in order to do what you want.

    So this cannot be done with Dreamweaver?

    Not with anything that is built-into DW, no.  You can still design the application, but it will probably require you to build an ActiveX or ASP.NET component.  In other words, you have to know how to program some things.
