How to share an OUtlook/Excahnge Calendar with an outside e-mail address

I have a co worker that would like to share his work calendar with his wife.  He incorporates their personal schedule with work schedule in Outlook (kids schedules, soccer games and so forth).  He would like to share his Outlook Calendar with his wide at home.

1.  We use Microsoft Exchange 2007.
2.  Currently we use Outlook 2003.

My question is can we make this happen?  As long as we know his wife's email address and have her as a 'contact' can she access his work schedule?  Just as if she was another user her?

Just assign her read permission and is that it?

Is OWA available externally?   You can send her a link similar to:

http://mymail.myorg.com/exchange/HusbandsUsername/Calendar

She can authenticate with his domain credentials, or you can create an account for her and grant her permissions to his calendar.

If we can share his work calendar how will she be able to open it?  If she is using a gmail or yahoo e-mail account?

You cannot share your our Exchange calendar with a user outside of the organization in the same manner as you would for an internal user who resides on your domain controller.  Check out the following Microsoft link on 'Internet Calendars':

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Also, If she has Outlook 2003 or better, you can configure RPC over HTTP to allow her to use the full Outlook Client without a VPN connection.  Here's one of many articles availabe on the web:

Having the users' wife access OWA enternally is a big "no no" but I like that idea, Cyberlopezz6!!

Joe Freedom, I really like the web page:  http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/howdoi/?p=128 ; however, we do not currenlty use Outlook 2007.  We curenlty use Outlook 2003.  

We do use OWA 2007 (We use Exchange server 2007).  We plan to use Office 2007 in July; but, anyway.  If you see the screen shot I do not see an option to publish a calendar in the OWA, do you know how to make it happen?
