This should work, Monique:

1. Sync your Outlook calendar to your own Google calendar, using Google's free
Calendar Sync program or whatever.

2. In your Google Calendar, go to Settings and choose the Calendars "tab".

3. Click the "Share this calendar" link. Check "Make this calendar public" or enter an
email address in the "Share with specific people" section. If you chose the former,
also check "Share only my free/busy information (Hide details)"; if the latter, set
Permission Settings to "See only free/busy (hide details)".

4. Click Save.

If I were doing this, I'd probably create a second Google account and share with it, as a test, before I shared with my client.
