You could try a couple of things...

First, you could evaluate some software like Communigate or Axigen but I 
can tell you that, Communigate at least, is not a very good product.  
Your best bet is to either try Axigen, which I haven't tested, or do 
what I did...

Install WebDav on a FreeBSD server and use this Outlook plugin to 
connect to webdav servers and save your files in ical format.

Outlook Plugin

Before you flame back with, "it only works with Outlook 2003".  Trust 
me, it's a small price to pay to not have to use some over-priced server 
solution like Communigate or Scalix.

Just my 2 cents...
