Default can public folder calendars be synchronized with user calendars?

hi,

in my company we do use public folders heavily within exchange 2003/outlook
2003. for our team we share that way i.e. a public folder (team) calendar,
mostly containing absences of our team.

however other employees of our company are not aware, where to find our team
calendar. when checking, who is available, they do check the user calendar of
the members of our team. however these personal calendars are not updated as
the team calendar has been decided as the way to go. beside of changing
internal communication ;-), is there any way to synchronize the team calendar
with the user´s calendar in order to avoid writing entries twice?

Not natively, and I know of no third-party app that does that. You're
welcome to look at http://www.slipstick.com.

If the team calendar is a public folder, they could synchronize that folder
by making it one of their public folder Favorites and configuring it to be
available offline. But that won't merge the content with their Outlook
folder.

Hi - as you can see from the duplicate postings, the web interface to the
newsgroups is not great. Try using a news client, such as Forte Agent,
Thunderbird, or even Outlook Express, instead. It's a lot easier to do
nearly everything that way. You can mark messages to be watched, filter the
views so you can see replies to your posts easily, and search.

The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
subscribe to as many groups as you like; no authentication is required.

The following is from a post by MVP Malke ...
