Hi can anyone recommend a Calendar sync tool that they have used to sync between a calendar in an Exchange 2003 public folder and Google apps.
I have found the following link but they appear to only sync a user’s personal Outlook Calendar.

I don't use Google apps, but this looks like what you require:

Hi Tony1044
The problem with this is that to implement Googles own sync tool you have to migrate you Exchange system over to Google apps changing DNS MX records etc .
At this time I just need to sync the Calendar.
Thanks

Ah sorry - I didn't realise it'd want full control.

Found this:

Seems to be about as good as it gets?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

This one only syncs to Outlooks default calendar so I would need another tool to sync the public calendar with the default local one.
I don’t know if you have ever setup the Blackberry desktop manager but it can sync the Blackberry with both local and Exchange folders. I was hoping that the same functionality existed in a 3rd party product that someone could recommend.

According to a colleague, this can sync multiple calendars but it costs:

Not expensive though - US$15 a user.

Gotta say btw - this is pretty poor showing of a company trying to push people to the cloud.

On a personal note, it is one more reason I wouldn't use Google for my hosted apps.

Sorry for the off-topic notes there.

Nice one Tony1044:  Indeed it lets me select a Calendar in a public folder.
 That’s great thanks again you’re a star.
