Need shared calendars and shared (global) address books

Our office is moving away from Exchange, but is retaining the Outlook clients. Outlook is connecting to our new mail server via dovecot/IMAP. The test platform works great so far. The issue is that the Exchange/Outlook configuration facilitated shared calendars and shared/global address books.

How can I get this functionality with dovecot/Outlook?

As I look around on Google, it appears this has been a challenge with DoveCot for several years, with no good answers.  It looks like you may have to look to a third-party (outside of Dovcot) for a solution.  

FWIW, Kerio Connect (http://www.kerio.com/connect) provides this functionality out of the box, costs a fraction of Exchange, and is actively supported and updated,

Well, that sucks a bit. We're going to use roundCube as our webmail app. It says something about "LDAP directory integration for address books". I haven't explored that yet.

I'll check out your Kerio link.

The kerio marketing verbiage seems to indicate it is a full email solution, not just calendars. That seems like it would require a change of direction away from dovecot. We'd have to think about that. I'm going to explore what dovecot has in mind with its statement about "LDAP directory integration for address books".

Other ideas for standalone/integratable calendars?

I'm going to repost a version of this question as I'm getting no traction. Your (BudDurland's) comment "you may have to look to a third-party", might end up being the final answer
