Send detailed email reminders via iCal and AppleScript Apps
My iCal mail script, called fittingly iCalMail [44KB download] lets you automatically email people at certain times. The following shows what becomes what in an e-mail;
  • Event Name becomes the Subject
  • Attendees become Recipients
  • The Notes field becomes the message text
For best results:
  • Set the alarm to open the "iCalMail" script at "0 minutes before."
  • Schedule events at least five minutes apart.
When sent successfully sent, a dialog lauds that fact for 10 seconds, and the event's location reads "iCalMail sent." Run the iCalMail Setup application to start the proper calendar and/or create an example event.

[robg adds: I tested these scripts, and they work as described -- just remember to choose the new iCalMail calendar for these reminder events. I have also created a local mirror [44KB download] in case the above URL fails at some point in the future.]

Send detailed email reminders via iCal and AppleScript
Authored by: lezone on Nov 06, '07 12:59:15PM

This script appears to be broken in Leopard. The crux looks like it has something to do with the attendees field. As this is clearly not supported by the developer anymore, I was wondering if anyone has experience with Applescript and might be able to fix it. If not, maybe a suggestion as to where to look to figure out the syntax for iCal in Leopard so I can fix it. Thanks,
