I have a very small law office as a client and they would like the ability to be able to use Outlook to share a calendar and to message internally between two computers without the messages ever leaving the Internal network.  Doing this is very easy using Exchange but I have never had to set something like this up on a small scale.  If Outlook can not do that is there some other collaboration software that would work for this.

Outlook is a mail client and can't do operations like that alone.

I suggest that you contact an ISP offering Hosted or Shared Exchange and configure your Outlooks to use it. It will much cheaper and easier than thinking of installing a collaboration software.
