Share contacts and calander in SBS2008 without email exchange...

Hello, I have an issue that cam up after getting "professional" advice. Please help...

I want to share ONLY calendars and contacts with 4 users. I was advised to get a dell server and Windows small business server 2008... There are some problems...

1. I do not want to use the exchange server for email, because there is not a tech onsite or near to watch and protect the mail exchange. their email is currently handled by another provider.
2. There are 2 laptops that connect to the server (currently only acting as a glorified file share) which are vista home.
3. I want to sync the calendar and contacts between the 4 users so if need be they can also access offsite...

I have worked with Dell extensively only to be told after that I can't do what the plan was...

Please provide info and I can fill in anything else you need to know from me...

If you don't want to run exchange, sign up for google apps.

Are they using Outlook?

I have heard good things about http://www.officecalendar.com/
