May be impossible but..

My firm uses Exchange Server (version 5 I think), with no POP3/IMAP access. So when I'm out of the office, it is down to Outlook Web Access. And my laptop is running Ubuntu, so it is a pretty poor experience.

What I would like is for my Outlook calendar to sync itself with my Google calendar (or with anything Linux).

Try davmail - it allows access to your exchange calendar via ical. The way I use it :

  • configure davmail with my corporate outlook
  • In thunderbird (I am to TB3 beta) , create a calendar (iCal) which points to the davmail configuration

Now, I can access outlook via thunderbird.

Not sure if this solves your problem, as it does not by default "syncs" to google etc.

Don't know 1 year ago how was davmail, but today it does solve the op's problem full featured! ;) – cregox Nov 3 '10 at 14:28

You may want to look into Google Calendar Sync.
I use it to sync my Google Calendar with my Outlook at work. I do not know if it works with the Web Access variant of Outlook, though.

Doesn't work through web access as far as I can tell. It needs a proper Outlook install. – Gary Sep 3 '09 at 22:44
