Add Holiday/Work Schedules in Outlook Web App / Exchange 2010

I created a .hol file that has our holiday and work schedule I'd like to send out this file to all employees. My problem is, some employees use Outlook Web App and I haven't been able to use the .hol file to add the schedule using OWA.

Is there another option to send out the holiday/work schedule to OWA users? Or a way to push out the schedule using Exchange Management Shell - if so, how?

Yes, as you answered HOL files can't be used for the OWA clients.

You can have a calendar folder with just the Holidays added\listed

Export this content to an PST file using the command

Note: You could make use of the
-IncludeFolders "#Calendar#"

Then, import these PST settings to few mailboxes...so we can get these items added to the calendar folders

You may need to add yourself an additional permission to perform the export-import commandlets

Thank you for the solution, you saved me a lot of time. We converted to Exchange/Outlook this year so I'm still in the learning phase.
