How do I set up the connections with all my Outlook 2007 Client machines with the Exchange 2007 Server

I have 5 clients in a small business and I wanted to set up the Exchange 2007 so that everyone that uses their Outlook 2007 on their individual machines can share their calendars for scheduling etc within the office. I am a bit lost as to what to call that whole scenario and where to find information on how to do it. Please advise.

Do you have a domain? Do you have a server for Exchange? Is it setup and installed? What is actually in-place?

We do have a domain it is installed on a Windows 2008 Server Standard. It is showing fully installed with all updates. Are there any videos or step by step instructions out there for us. Best practices would probably help too.

the general overview is this:

1. prep the domain - everything in setup will help you with this. You have to install a number of items, such as .net, powershell, etc.
2. install Exchange 2007
3. configure Exchange to send and receive email
4. configure emails for the users
5. configure offline address book and public folders, if so desired

You can also get good info from the articles on Petri's website -

and don't be concerned about it asking you to install a number of updates and items.

you do have a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 or 2008, right? 2007 won't run on 32-bit in production, and only SP 1 will run on 2008. In fact, go straight for SP 1, as it has a full version of Exchange in them.
