Group calendaring with Outlook 2000

By eusi ·
I have a group of 6 users who keep individual Outlok calendars. I need to be able to see all of the calendars at one time but coded somehow to tell the different users apart. I found a program that will allow me to do this but it requres Exchange 5.5, which I believe requires Windows 2000 Server to run. All of the machines are currently running Window 98 on a P2P network. I had planned to set up a server for the office but I had hoped to use Red Hat 7.1. Both Windows 2000 server and Red Hat 7.1are new to me. My users do not have to use Outlook but it would be easier.
So, I need to find a way to have group calendaring in a Win 98 environment. Is this possible? Please give details. I hope this is clear.

As you've found, trying to do this without Exchange is hard. I find that the best site for information about Outlook?Exchange is WWW.Slipstick.com
Here are some URLs that have some suggestions including posting to the Web and using Net folders:
http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/share.htm

http://www.slipstick.com/addins/calendar.htm

http://www.slipstick.com/calendar/scheduleall.htm

(there are no spaces in the URLs)
Good luck

Outlook 2000 has a way of "sharing" folders such as calendars. Go to the calendar that you want to share with other users. Click on the calendar, then go to file - share - This folder. A wizard will pop up and ask you who else you want to share the folder with. If you want to see other peoples calendars, you would have to set this up on each pc. During the process you may need your office cd if you didn't do a complete install.

Be aware that Office XP does not support this feature anymore.

You may want to look into Windows 2000 Small Business Server. It is somewhat reasonably priced and includes the server side and Exchange 2000.

Good luck
