One of our users tried to send some appts as attachments to a non outlook user outside of the company and the attachments are empty when you ckick on them. Is there a way to send appts, contacts, etc. to other people outside of the company's exchange network?

Thank you.

Thanks for the input but I think that only works with users who have an iCal email client (Which I think means Outlook).

Is there a way to send several calendar entries with the notes, not just the subject line, to a user in another company who is not using Outlook but does have email and internet access?

Thank you

Icalendar is designed so that users that do not have Outlook can see the appointment or respond to a meeting request. Did you even test it before you said that I'm wrong?

I said "I think" not that "I know", sorry if I hurt your feelings.

From what I read on the help file, it said that the recipient needs to have an iCal enabled email client. When I open the attachment from the message I sent to a Yahoo account it opened it up with Outlook and does not just display it as I had initially wanted it to. I will not be able to test it on an outside machine for many hours, so I thought I would ask if there is another way to do it, not necessarily that you were wrong.

OK Amy, if you are still there and "speaking" to me. I tried using iCal to forward the appt. and opened it with a computer that did not have Outlook. I opened the file using notepad, the date-time field, DTStamp, gives the date and time along with 00z all in one string that is not too easy to decipher for my users' recipients. Is this as good as it gets, or is there something else I can do to make it more readable? Is there a better program to open the file with? I would think that Lotus notes would have some compatibility to open a delineated file from M$, but apparently they do not...
