Meeting Requests


Q

Question Boy

Hello,

I created a meeting request and e-mailed it out to different people. A
couple people said they got garbage which I checked and is the coded version.
Instead of getting a nisely formatted e-mail with voting buttons they got

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
PRODID:-//Microsoft Corporation//Outlook 11.0 MIMEDIR//EN
VERSION:2.0
METHOD:REQUEST
BEGIN:VEVENT
and so on

I then checked and found out they use Thunderbird to check e-mail. Is there
a way to send a meeting request that is universally accepted? Is there a
work around? or are meeting requests limited to Outlook only (which mean not
useable outside my own organization)?

Thank you,

QB

Use iCal format instead of vCal.

Brian,

How?

Under Tools the 'Send as ICalendar' is checked. Am I missing something?

I also noticed that in the Action menu there is an option 'Forward as
ICalendar'. What is the diff between the Tools and the Action versions?

Thank you,

QB

I'd save it as a file and then attach it.

I don't know. I do this so rarely that I'm not familiar with the vagaries
of the various methods.

I don't know.
