MS Exchange for Calendar/Scheduling ONLY

By FGiffone ·
My school district moved away from MS Exchange several years ago due to viruses. We now use Centrinity's FirstClass (FC) Client/Server. To USE FC's interface, you must login. Many of our admin's would like to "take" their schedules/appt's with them but FC does not provide portability as an Outlook or a Palm desktop client would. Can MS Exchange be used JUST as a Calendar/Scheduling application OR MUST it's email functionality be enabled? Our environment is Win2000 Active Directory and Mac OS9/X. Outlook & Entourage, coupled with an Exchange server would be a very useful addition, minus the email (and possible virual infection that comes along with it). Thank you!

You will have to enable public folders for the Free/Busy portion of calendaring to work in Exchange. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings...

I would honestly look at Ximian or Mozilla calendar if all you need is calendaring functionality.

I'm curious as to why you seem to believe Exchange will expose your company to viruses more than any other mail server?
