I am not on a Windows machine and cannot access outlook other than I have my exchange email set up through Thunderbird/Lightning AND synced my exchange calendar.

How can I share my exchange calendar with another outlook user? Thank you.

When you say share with other outlook user. Do you mean you want share your free/busy status? – devav2 Aug 28 '12 at 10:13
@devav2 - No, I can send event notifications. I need a specific person to be able to access my calendar at any time on outlook so they can see my schedule for the day/week. – Ben Aug 28 '12 at 10:16

If you have your calender is on, you should be able to Publish the calender to anyone you wish to share with.

In your calendar, on the Home tab, in the Share group,
click Publish Online, and then click Publish to

You can also set who can view this calender along with other settings.

Outlook products are being merged (renamed :P) into so the sources I have below should relate to this.

On Thunderbird you can do that with lighting .

If you have already created a local calendar on Thunderbird. First you need to publish your calendar to be shared with others.

To share, Right click on a local calendar -> Select "Publish Calendar...". You will get a dialog box prompting to enter the "Publishing URL" Enter a proper URL(check with your company email administrator for this URL) It may differ for different companies. The URL I use is something like http:// domainname\email_ID/EWS/Exchange.asmx
