Exchange 2010 Shared Contacts and Calendars in OWA

I've read around and have not found any solutions to accessing Shared Calendars, and more importantly, shared contacts in OWA.  Perhaps there has been a solution integrated into Exchange 2010 SP1.

Is this possible?  

Thanks,
JOe K.

For the calendar....
In OWA, right click on Calendar, click Add Calendar...enter name of shared calendar

You cannot view another user's contacts without opening their entire mailbox.

I got the calendar to work.  It's less than graceful if you need to check a bunch of calendars but it's definitely better than nothing.   I think it saves them so it's a one time addition.

Is there a way I can create "Global Address Lists" that only certain users can see and other users can manage?

Thanks,

Dang!

So global address lists are limited to the mailboxes within the domain?  Meaning I can't add a bunch of random lists to global address lists?

Shoot.  I meant Distribution Groups not address lists.

I just want to create a distribution group with external email addresses on the server.

You'd create a contact and add their SMTP email address, then add that contact to the distro.

So if I have a list of 50 contractors in a users outlook contacts I'd have to create 50 contact objects in Active Directory?

And end users would not be able to manage these contacts?
