Outlook Calendars


S

Stormy

I am hoping that someone can give me a definitive answer & the reasons
(please!) & get my MD off of my back.
We have 2 buildings, 2 domains, each with its own exchange server,(& a
vpn link between buildings), what my boss wants to be able to do is have
his calendar for each site available all the time in just one profile,
is this possible?
We use SBS 2k on one site & server2k3 + exchange 2k3 on the other,
client is currently outlook 2k but could be upgraded if needed

No, sorry. You can see only one Exchange server in a mail profile (although
you can open multiple mailboxes *on* that server in the profile). Perhaps
your company needs to rethink its current structure and have a single domain
and Exchange org/admin group. You can't even set up trusts with SBS.

Beyond that, I'd suggest he just keep the other mailbox open in OWA.

Thanks for that!
I believe it is possible to send calendar items as mail? perhaps he
could use that as a workaround? send himself calendar items by mail from
one account to the other so they can be added to his calendar that way?
Would that be do-able? If so whats the best way?
TIA

He can send himself meeting invitations, or ics files, but I think that
might be a bit clumsy.
