The following describes the process of sharing free and busy information between Microsoft Exchange Server and MS Mail (PC) systems.
When the Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector is started, it determines whether an administrator's mailbox (ADMINSCH) has been created for the Microsoft Exchange Server computer. If a mailbox has not been specified, the connector stops. If a mailbox has been specified, the Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector searches the global address list for custom recipients designated as ADMINSCH for the MS Mail (PC) system. The Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector then searches for a distribution list of accounts to whom it will send scheduling updates from Microsoft Exchange users. If the list is empty, the connector stops.
The Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector checks the Inbox of the ADMINSCH account on the Microsoft Exchange Server for free and busy information sent from the MS Mail (PC) system to Microsoft Exchange Server. If it finds an entry in the ADMINSCH account, the Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector searches the Schedule+ Free/Busy system folder for a corresponding entry. The Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector moves free and busy updates for MS Mail (PC) users from the Inbox to the system folder.
The Schedule+ Free/Busy Connector checks the Schedule+ Free/Busy system folder to determine whether any Microsoft Outlook users have updated their schedules. It sends any changes in the system public folder to the ADMINSCH accounts defined in the MS Mail (PC) system.
