What's the easiest way to share a calendar in outlook 2007 between 5-10 people on a local network? I have tried sharepoint and the password prompts are too much of a pain. Security is not an issue; ease and functionality are the priorities.

Are you using Outlook with Exchange? Have you tried just using a simple shared calendar in a public folder? – Russ Warren Dec 22 '09 at 15:49

No exchange. How do I create a simple shared calendar in a public folder? We all have access via the local network to a shared file system. Can I use that to "host" the calendar? – JoshuaD Dec 22 '09 at 21:23

"Are you using Windows authentication in SharePoint?" I'm not sure. How do I check? – JoshuaD Dec 23 '09 at 5:38

Popular online syncing solutions for an Outlook calendar are Windows Live Calendar and Google Calendar. If an Internet connection is not an option, you can share a calendar via a local WebDAV server (see your Outlook help for detailed steps).
