Outlook: Scheduling Appointments on the Web

I created a public calendar in Outlook. When I click on a Web site that offers to put an appointment directly in my calendar, the Web site puts the appointment in my default personal calendar. How can I make the appointment go into a calendar in Public Folders instead?

Most Web sites that provide Outlook-compatible appointments use iCalendar.ics or vCalendar.vcs files. When you open these files, you see an Outlook appointment. Don't click Save and Close to save the appointment. Instead, click File, Copy to Folder, then select the public folder that contains the calendar. Finally, close the open appointment without saving it.
