How to Share a Calendar in Outlook 2007

Outlook 2007 gives you the option of sharing a calendar with other users. The recipient normally receives a notification via email indicating that you wish to share your calendar with him/her. This goes both ways--the recipient can share a calendar with you in the same fashion. Sharing calendars on Outlook is becoming increasingly popular these days because it saves users time and energy--they don't have to manually type dates and times to send an invitation or schedule meetings.
