Managing a Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2010

Sharing Calendar Information

Outlook enables you to share Calendar information with others. You can forward a Calendar item by e-mail to other Outlook users, or you can forward an iCalendar item to any user of any Internet-connected mail program. You should use iCalendar when you schedule meetings with people who don’t use Outlook.
