  • WSS 3.0 can send emails with or without Exchange Server.  It only needs some SMTP server, which could be via the POP3 service MS provides, Exchange, or even Groupwise).  WSS 3.0 receives emails by installing the SMTP service on the local IIS box for incoming mail.  You have to configures incoming mail settings to get it to point to the correct folder, and to enable this feature.  Office 2007 supports the export and modification of SharePoint-based Calendars and Contacts.  Just go to the list in question and click on Actions -> Connect to Outlook.
