Using SharePoint to Collaborate on Office Documents

If you’re on a network and you want to share a document with other users, the easiest way to do that is to place the document in a shared network folder and give those users access to the folder. If you also want to have online discussions with those users and share a calendar and contacts, the easiest route is via an Exchange Server on your network.

However, what if you want to work with people who don’t have access to your network? These days, many businesses are “virtual” in the sense that they consist of permanent employees and temporary contract workers, all of whom work or live in separate locations. For these far-flung businesses, you can still use Exchange Server via a hosting service. However, this usually means creating a separate Outlook profile just for the Exchange Server account, which is a hassle if you also have POP or HTTP accounts, for instance.
