Generate Outlook events

 10:48 pm on Aug 30, 2006 (gmt 0)


I thought I'd found a way to do this - twice - then realized that the methods I was using only worked to send Outlook events (or Appointments) to the current user. I need to send Outlook calendar events to a list of users when someone enters an event on my site. If I can, I'd like to avoid doing it by generating the event file and sending it as an attachment.

Does anyone know how I could do this? Even a good place to start would be a great help.

Thanks in advance,

Alot depends on whats installed on the server. Are you on win2k3? use the free sharepoint services, you can run it without windows authentication.

If not you can use CDO for classic ASP or WEBDAV in .NET. Or can create a vcs file and save it on the server, but the user will have to click it.

Try here for sample code

I'm creating the VCS files now and emailing them to the appropriate users, but I'd like something more automatic - at least so they don't have to open an attachment. What does WEBDAV do?

Also, we looked into Sharepoint and found that its reliance on ActiveX and other things made it pretty useless on a Mac and annoying in Firefox. Do the Outlook integration components avoid that problem?

Thanks for the response!
