Is there a way to sync data between two Exchange calendars?
Posted on 2010-08-31
Here is the situation. I have a group of users that are going to be working on a long term project for a city government. They have BlackBerrys and Outlook 2007 clients connected to our Exchange 2007 server. They have been provided with some city owned computers that have Outlook configured to connect to the city Exchange 2003 server when they are in the city office. They have very busy schedules and users in both organizations need to see their free/busy time.
Here is what I have been able to accomplish so far. The users are able to send and receive emails from both accounts on their BlackBerrys (OWA access to city mail). The users can check their city email when they are away from the city office via OWA. Unfortunately, the OWA connectivity is limited on the BlackBerry to email only, which means no calendar. I can sync the two calendars via Google Calendar Sync, but this is not a reliable solution by any means and management does not like this solution. Can you help me find a way (or paid service) that will sync the data between the two accounts? Thanks.
I DON'T HAVE:
IMAP or POP access to the city email
NO city BES connectivity
NO VPN connectivity
I DO HAVE:
OWA access to city mail
Citrix access to a city outlook client
Physical access to a city computer
