Use sendmail with iCal even when iCal isn't running
Authored by: cybermill on Oct 01, '02 02:46:19AM
You will also need to edit the mailscript.applescript deeper inside the iCal.app, inside the "iCal Helper.app". After I edited and tested the mailscript.applescript file, I navigated via

cd /Applications/iCal.app/Contents/Resources/'iCal Helper.app'/Contents/Resources/

Once there I made backups of mailInfoScript.applescript and mailScript.applescript using the following commands.

sudo cp mailInfoScript.applescript mailInfoScript-bu.applescript
sudo cp mailScript.applescript mailScript-bu.applescript


Then I copied the same 2 files from the iCal.app resource like so:

sudo cp ../../../mailInfoScript.applescript mailInfoScript.applescript
sudo cp ../../../mailScript.applescript mailScript.applescript


I tried just logging out and logging back in, but it didn't seem to work. Once I restarted, the emails started flowing through sendmail. You still have to be logged in but you don't have to have the iCal app running.

Maybe they can combine this with the original hint so that it is a complete solution.

Use sendmail with iCal even when iCal isn't running

I've tried modifying pretty much every mail*.applescript file i could find (save for "Mail.applescript") and i still can't get iCal to use sendmail instead of Mail.app. Has anyone figured out how to get this working correctly?

The file in my case was Mail.scpt.

And then there was the problem to get this email out...

I always get the error message "Domain of sender address does not resolve"

well of course not: logo@localhost will not be a success in the recipient's server!!!

Any way to get a good (my real) address in there as the sender?

I know it's possible if I use a java app that can set the sender!!!

Pleeeeeease!!!!

I can't get this to work. iCal still uses mail.app after changing all the script files. Do I need to turn sendmail on?
