    Question Share Free/Busy With Exchange

    I've tried to find something about this on the forums, but haven't seen it anywhere, so excuse me if this is a duplicate.

    Would it be possible to share the Free/Busy status of a Zimbra user with an Exchange user? This would be most helpful while we migrate users to Zimbra.

    if they use outlook, they can set the internet free/busy url to point to the zimbra server.

    In outlook:

    1) Go to:
    tools->options->calendar options->free/busy options

    2) Set the search location to:
    http(s)://<your-server>/service/pubcal/freebusy.ifb?acct=%name%@%server%

    when you attempt to create a meeting request with user@company.com, outlook will send a free/busy request to

    http(s)://<your-server>/service/pubcal/freebusy.ifb?acct=user@company.com

    Default Thanks!

    That worked very nicely. Is there any way to do it the other way around? Let the Zimbra users view free/busy info of the Exchange users?

    Not today. We are working on it though.

    Sam - Is there a way to secure this or can anyone access this information?
    Sincerely,
