This is the nearest one could probably come. Took just a superficial look
and it sounds interesting. Sould probably help to move away from m$ IE to
mozilla alltohether. I'm trying to engage the sysadmins at work into this,
with very little success :( There's an RFP on this too.
>From the FAQ:
Q: Will it work with Outlook?
A: Outlook does not store its calendar data in an open standard format, so
it currently does not support Outlook directly. However, you can export
your Outlook events as an .ics file, and import them into the calendar.
Q: Can I publish my events on a remote server?
A: You can publish events from the calendar to an FTP server or a webDAV
enabled webserver. You can also use the calendar to subscribe to these
events as well.
