Publish Outlook 2007 public folder on the interenet

We have worked (hard) to set up a shared public folder - the benefit from public folders seems to be we can share a view.  And now I wish to publish that folder so it can be accessed by a person out of the office and not connected to our exchange server.

However it seems one can only publish the default calendar.  Is there any way we can publish a public folder calendar, or do we need to go back and share a default calendar.

Thanks,

Hi,

The most secure way is probably to set this external user up with an account and assign them permissions to logon via OWA and browse to the public folder. Otherwise I would try to find/write some code that can export the public folder contents and then import it to a web site that is exposed to the Internet.

Thanks Mass,

unfortunately we had problems with the router and it is not configures to allow outlook web access (bugger).  

Do you think it is possible to synchonise the default calendar with the public folder calendar and then publish the default calendar ?  Or should I ask that as another question on this site?

Publishing to a secured Webdav capable web server might work for you but I would test and re-test the security of it. You don't want to expose your Exchange server to port 80 requests from the Internet.

I've never tried to do this so I can't give exact instructions. You could also try to write a script that saves the public folder calendar data as a web page and then uploads that to a public accessible web server.

Thanks Mass,

I am a lowly medical practitioner, so writing script is beyond me.  I might try to add the relevant person to our domain and see if she can connect via the vpn.
