We currently use Phone Slips to see and post to each others Calendars in the Organization.  We have 15 Users on the Network and all have Office 2003, 2007 or 2010.  

If we wanted to start using OUTLOOK calendar / scheduling . . . is there a way to see other’s appointments or make an appointment for someone else without an internal Exchange Server?

Thanks...

Hi!

You need a server to handle calendar sharing. You could use one of those alternatives to Exchange server:

Thanks for the above Links Tobias......

I currently have a MS 2012 Foundation Server onsite that I wanted to use.  I was thinking about installing Apache Server with WebDAV and sharing the Outlook Calendars that way. I have never done this before and don't know if it will even work.

What are some thoughts on doing it this way?

Thanks,
Dave

I haven't done it either, but it looks like it's quite possible:
