Exchange 2010 Setup (Calendar Only)

Exchange 2010 - Calendar Only Setup

I am looking to produce a calendar only Exchange solution. I want the ability for each person to setup their own calendar through Outlook 2010 through the server and share it accordingly with each other in the office. I also want a web based calendar setup on the server as well that is accessible through a browser through a sub-domain.

I have the following already.

5 PC's Setup with Windows 7 Professional - Each one will be a user
iPhones for each user to setup the calendar.
Dell PowerEdge T110-II w/SBS 2011 - Exchange 2010 - 10 Users - Multipurpose Server

Exchange has been preinstalled on the server itself and it has been setup. Any information that requires me to link the MX Records or anything to it for email purposes that would be helpful too. I am just needing a calendar but any of the other information would be helpful as well.

Thank you in advance.

I'm kind of confused. The title says a calendar only exchange server, but then at the end you don't mind setup info on email either. My understanding is that calendars are apart of the default set of tools users get with an exchange based email account. So, I would have no idea how to setup a Calendar only Exchange.

That is what I am saying, if email is required then I do not mind setting it up.

I thought that this was an available option, the Calendar Only.

Ah, I see.

You can setup a Calendar Only item in public folders. But this is not going to allow users to link their iPhone to the Calendar. Seeing as how you 5 PC, and I would assume that means you have 5 users, it looks like you are licensed to have 10 exchange accounts.

How is email currently handled for the company? Just because Exchange is available does not mean its the right solution for the company. If you end up using Exchange you'll need to take into account storage needs, retention periods, Exchange friendly backups, and possibly DR (disaster recovery) scenarios.

Email is currently hosted through GoDaddy and we are fine with that, it doesn't cost alot and I do not have to manage the back end of email as much as I probably would have to with the Exchange server.

I will look over what you linked and get back to you. Thanks!
