    Can I Share My Outlook Calendar?

    I have a two-PC wireless network that exists mainly so that two PC's in my home can use my one DSL connection. Those two PCs both run Outlook and I'd like to be able to read one of the Calendars from the other PC. I know you can do it if you have MS Exchange Server but I don't have it. Is there anything I can try?

    While not strictly "sharing" I tried setting of a new appointment on one PC and used the "Invite Attendees" function to at least alert the other PC. I received the following instead of an actual "invite". Is there anything I can do with it?

    You need to be using a Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail account on both ends.

    Thanks I knew about MS Exchange Server but was hoping there was something else I could do.

    You can publish your calendar to a web page too.

    File > Save As Webpage...

    Then after it saves as webpage you can upload the files to your IIS wwwroot folder's virtual dir of your website orjust upload to your ISP's website, if you have that option from your ISP.

    Another one lost to Google.

    Hmm, so if there was a Add-In for Outlook that would share your calendar (for non-exchange environments) out to a webpage, similar to Google, you would buy it? Sign up for the free calendar hosting service but just purchase the Add-In for a nominal fee?
