    The external HTML view is still slated for the 5.0 release.
    You would browse to something like http://server/home/~/Calendar.html

    I played with publishing the calendars like you suggested. Thank you for the tip. When I am logged into the Zimbra as a user is able to access the shaered calendar as I would expect.

    Is there a way to do something similar with public access through http://zimbramailserver/home/joeuser/Calendar ? When I access the calendar through the published url I get the blasted .ics file and only 1 calendar item is there

    I would like to be able to pull up the calendar like the calendar on the ZIMBRA community forms site. That's what I want...WHAT I REALLY-REALLY-WANT!

    How do I do that?

    According to both the PM and the 5.0Beta3 Blog entry, this feature should now be present. But I'm having no luck getting it to work.

    I've tried sharing a calendar as 'public' and then accessing it with the URL https://zimbraserver/home/me/Calendar/ (the URL advertised in the Sharing setup), but this just gives me the .ics file. I've also tried the same thing replacing the trailing '/' with '.html'. That just returns a 404 for "RequestURI=/zimbra/h/rest".

    So am I doing something wrong, or is this not yet ready in beta3?

    Unfortunately I believe it is working 'by design' and I think that term should be used loosely as this is some of the worst 'design' I've ever seen. I now have a broken nose and black eyes after getting pasted by trying to figure out shared addressbooks.

    Try this as you are making the same mistakes I did with addressbooks. Right click on the header in the left frame called Calendars, notice the option 'Link to Shared calendar'. That is how you attach to the shared calendar. The next question you will have is wth is 'Path'. In a nutshell it's going to be the name of the calendar as it is shared. SO if the shared calendar was 'my calendar' then that's what you use. Apparently there is a possibility of nested objects where it could be something like 'my calendar/June' but haven't fooled with that at all.

    While I 'get' this arrangement now, it needs serious help. If I am configuring a new system for a 100 users and I want to set up global lists for various departments and share it amongst all the users....what a nightmare.
