We're running smartermail 13.1.5451 and activated a trial of microsoft exchange activesync in order to be able to use a central calendar for planning meetings, time off etc.  

Everybody is running microsoft outlook (2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013).  The outlook client is what we want to use for meetings etc, not the web interface of smartermail.  I found info in the smartermail kb on using "add to outlook" but the description says "Add to Outlook does not, however, sync domain resources like shared calendars and contacts".

Is there any way to do this?  Basically we want to be able to use outlook to plan meetings, etc and have that information automatically update a central calendar so we know when we are trying to invite somebody to a meeting at a time they are already busy.

Looking further on the smartermail knowledgebase I found this:

"NOTE: As listed in the SmarterMail System Requirements, SmarterMail requires a Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit or higher to run on. While earlier versions may succeed, attempting to enable ActiveSync for use with Outlook 2013 on a Windows 2003 server will result in connectivity issues."

Currently we are running smartermail on a windows 7 pro box.  I'll need to look into getting windows server.
