Provided both recipients have Outlook at either end, you can still send meeting requests. You just need to press "Invite Attendees" and enter their email addresses in the "To" field on the meeting request.

You can't easily poll their free/busy information though, since this is usually stored on the user's local PC in their Outlook PST file, meaning it will not be available on a server anywhere. That's about all the functionality you lose by not having Exchange, though.
