    Can this ASP.NET ajax control:
    1. Bind or connect to an Exchange Server data store (2003 and higher)?

    2. Display multiple calendars simultaneously (display 2 or more user calenders at the same time)?

    3. Allow email to be sent.

    I am sorry; these are more like sales questions, than technical questions, but I don't have time to test everyone's trial version of these controals (daypilot, devexpress, etc.). I just know that I need a third-party control that looks sort of like an Outlook calendar and will allow a user to save scheduled appointments directly to Exchange Server (while mobile) so that when the user returns to the office and opens Outlook, they will see the new appointments. I don't want to have to jump thru hoops, such as storing appointments elsewhere, like SQL Server, and then having to migrate the data over to Exchange. I want the ASP.NET controls to be able to read/write directly to Exchange.

    When a user is mobile, they will also need to view the calendar of multiple contractors at one time, in order to figure out which contractor is available to work on a job. And while mobile, they may need to immediately send email to that contractor, so I need the web control to be able to send email messages as well.

    As a Visual Studio 2010 developer, is RadCalendar right for what I need???

    Hello steven,

    RadCalendar is not the right control for your case. You can try using RadScheduler and see if it works for you.

    Kind regards,
