Moving To Offiice Calendar Or Similar But Need To Transfer Data

Need to replace an ageing SBS 2000 server with a new one and probably Server 2008 R2.
There is currently a public folder set up so that 2 users can share a calendar. I was thinking
That SBS 2011 might be overkill so was thinking of server 2008 and something like
OfficeCalendar so that the 2 users can continue to share a calendar.


The main problem I can see is importing the data from the public folder on the old SBS network to the new folder setup in Outlook via the OfficeCalendar software. Has anybody else done this? and what is the best way to approach .

Thanks

You say there are public folders setup so are they using Exchange internally as well?

How many events does the calendar have? What do they use for email if it isn't Exchange? You should really either have internal Exchange, hosted Exchange or something like Google Apps that does all the syncing and sharing you are wanting.

No, Just for a public folder. Quite a few, going back at least 6 years and some in the future.
Email is just a pop account in outlook express. Just 2 users and 1 public folder.

Built a test server with SBS 2011 on it. Created a public folder using Exchange management
console and then Public folder management console. The folder appears in outlook
on the workstation I am testing it on. But I am having trouble importing the backup I
have from the old server. When I try I get the following message. Items cannot
be created in the root of public folders. How can I import the pst into the new public
folder. If it has the same name would that be a problem

Thanks

Question was about a third party product for sharing a calendar. Nobody had answered this,
So have decide to go with SBS 2011 anyway.
