Exchange - How do I share a company calendar?

I just upgraded to Exchange on Network Solution.

I got it all working correctly, but I would like to know how I can share a company calendar.

The receptionist has her calendar, but I want her to also share a company calendar.
How can I do this?

Also how can I create a global contact list so that anyone in the company can have access to it?

Thanks you

I am not sure what the Network Solutions offering is, but I assume it is similar to Office 365. There are ways of sharing a calendar just by using Outlook:

The basic principle is that a person shares their calendar, eg the boss shares it with the receptionist.

To have a "Generic" company calendar, you would need to create a separate "Company" person or a resource mailbox from within your Exchange Control Panel (if Net Sol offer this). You then give full access permission to the receptionist who can share it further so all employees can view it.

A global Contact list is automatically created for you, it contains all members of your Exchange domain. If you want to add entries outside the company you need to add them as Contacts in Exchange. Alternatively, you could use the above "Generic" mailbox to use as a Contacts repository for all your companies outside contacts and have it maintained by the receptionist.
