I have been asked to investigate moving staff at our recently merged sister company, who have their own Exchange server, onto our KC server. One requirement is shared calendars across the two domains. I've been testing this and it only partially works. I have set up a secondary domain, and a test machine running Entourage 2008 configured as an Exchange account. I have then added a user as a delegate in the Accounts delegation tab.

If inviting someone from the primary domain, I can see them in the directory list and their calendar events show in the scheduling window. But I can't actually view their calendar in the folder list.

Am I missing something, or is Kerio not really designed to work this way?

Thanks.

Entourage 2008 cannot share or delegate folders for users in different email domains. It is the limitation of the client.

I see, thanks. How about Outlook 2011 for Mac, will this support calendar sharing across domains?

I'm pushing this up again. We've got different domains within our Kerio and I need to access shared calendars belonging to one domain from another! How can I reach this goal?

I tried give directly access for the user - doesn't work. Groups from the second domain are not shown...

The target user uses Outlook (2003)....

We are using shared calendars from different domains in Outlook 2011 Mac and Apple Calendar. No issues so far.

Permissions are set up in KC web client.

But how?! Maybe I just can't find it. Example:

I've got a public calendar from domain-a.de within KC. I've got several permissions for user of domain-a.de - everything works fine. Now a user of domain-b.de should have access to the same calendar. Unfortunately I can't grant any rights for domain-b.de to that public calendar. Neither groups are available nor I can enter single users from domain-b.de. -> "You can only add users of the domain-a.de domain" - or something like this - for me it's in german.

How to share? Thanks!!!!

This is really a sad thing. Still found no really good solution. One possible (unsave?!) solution:

Tag the calendar you want to share as a complete public one. Then you'll get a link to the calendar you can import either in Outlook or in iCal. Two things:

1) One who guesses that URL can fetch the cal - not very safe.

2) The one who put's that cal into his Outlook with the URL can also edit each entry - which I for example don't want. Even in it's written "read only permission" in the kerio backend.

So for me no real solution :/

You can share calendars from different domains by using the old webmail to set it up. I don't know if this works in Outlook but it works in Apple Calendar/iCal and works on iOS if you set it up with activesync.

I can use the manual import (read only?!) thing - http://my.domain.de/ical/public/calname within Outlook. I just need to auth with an existing domain user. In this way I've got a read only calender within Outlook. This seems to be my (construced) solution.

Or did you mean any other way within the old webmail?

I found another thing: Within the domain settings you can switch: Unique for each domain or global. This is the solution BUT...

It only works if you haven't created any calendars so far. Once you switch the public ones that are already created are hidden. Of course you can export every cal - then switch and re-import them with the new settings. You just need to make sure that every of your users need to re-activate these calendars.

So no real solution for me now since we've got already several cals in use.

Sharing folders across domains is possible only if Public Folders are set as "Global for All Domains". Outlook first sends request to resolve user name (it's not possible to enter user name directly) and this resolving works across domains only in this case.
