How to access two outlook exchange calendars from completely different domains side-by-side

i work for two independent organizations. One of them has provided Outlook 2007 via Exchange 2003 and the other has provided OWA via Exchange 2003.

Each Organization provides a calendar. One is accessed as an exchange account in Outlook 2007 using and . The other is via OWA at https:///exchange//calendar.

I would like to access via outlook 2007 as well so I can easily compare the two calendars. I tried to subscribe to in Outlook using this address: webcals:///exchange//calendar but Outlook wants the subscription to include a specific file name like ical in order to work.

Any Ideas how i can get these two calendars side-by-side?

Thanks!

it seems I used tags in the previous post that eliminated some words. Sorry for that. here it is again corrected:

I would like to access domain2 via outlook 2007 as well so I can easily compare the two calendars. I tried to subscribe to domain2 in Outlook using this address: webcals://domain2/exchange/user2/calendar/ but Outlook wants the subscription to include a specific file name like ical in order to work.

AFAIK Outlook doesn't like two Exchange servers in one profile. Filename or no filename doesn't matter. If you can get organisation 2 to provide you with connection details (for Outlook Anywhere, say) you could set up another profile under Control Panel -> Mail -> Show Profiles. Then set to "Prompt for which profile to be used" and Outlook will ask you at start. That's IF because you already said org 2 only provide OWA. Either way you probably need to talk to tech support at Org 2.

Try to get Outlook access to the second account (rpc over http or over VPN) add it to a new profile like yoHighness suggested.
Then in Outlook 2007 you can publish the Calendar to the Office Live online service ("Publish My Calendar" in Calendar view) and send it to the first account.
It's read only access but you can view them side by side.

Thanks for the thoughts! Unfortunately Org 2 provides only OWA or outlook within a secure/locked-down private network
