Altering and adding events to an outlook calendar that is published to the internet if you are a delegate

So the scenario is this

Person A - 'Publishes their calendar to the internet'
Person A Shares said calendar with Person B

Person B subscribes to the calendar by signing in using their 'Live ID'
Person B now sees Persons A calendar in their outook

Heres where my problem begins... Person B wants to create meetings on that calendar but is met with a 'You cannot make changes to the contents of this read only folder'

Is there a way to do this and if not does anyone have any suggestions for a Calendar Sharing scenario that isnt google based...

Maybe someone with some Google Apps experience can help you with this.

In general though, there is a feature in Outlook to publish an Outlook Calendar as a web page. This published page I believe is like any web page you would see on the internet meaning that you cannot just edit this page. This published page is just a copy of the Outlook calandar at the time the owner published it.

Sharing as defined via Google, would likely only mean that the Calendar is being made available to be seen only like sharing your Facebook info as an example.

Sharing a Calendar via an Exchange server hosting outlook web access might offer the ability to edit calendar appointments.

Sharing a Calendar accross a LAN/WAN on a network via an exchange server is doable, but I'm pretty sure this is "not' what you are asking.

What you might be able to find is a Web Application/hosting company that offers their web based Calendar to use for a monthly fee.

Maybe Google Calendar will let you do this?
