Sharing Outlook Calendar problem

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to share some Outlook 2007 Calendars, and the option to Share is not available. Thing is, we are not using Exchange. It's all pop3 to an Linux mail server. Do we need to use Exchange to be able to use the Calendar Sharing functuions?

    Accepted Solution

    Calendar Sharing, Delegate Access, Scheduling Assistant, Publishing Free/Busy, assigning tasks, and tracking are all Exchange Only Options.

    Without an Exchange Server, and a Domain Controller with Active Directory Outlook would not be able to Assign permissions / Shares nor will it have an Exchange server to publish information to

    If using 2007 or 2010, you can send a copy of the calendar appointments, but that about it

    Only way around it would be to publish the calendar to a WebDav Site or Office Online
    However, still not really sharing as much as it is just publishing it
