How to SEND meeting requests in Mail
Authored by: mark hunte on Aug 05, '04 06:50:59PM

Ok, after reading this thread I went and had a play. I'm using 10.28 so they maybe some differences.
All you have to do to send an Invite from iCal is create your event.
Once done and all you info is set, select your event and go to the Attendees in the info side bar and type the email address into the None field. Your will notice it will then offer you possible address as you type. add all the names you want.
Now click the attendees button to send invite.

Just to Note in 10.2.8 to get an invite, I sent one to myself by logging on to my Works mail and sending me one.
In 10.2.8 this arrived as text within the email, even though the Attachment Icon say's there is an Attachment, There is not. So I copied the text from
BEGIN:VCALENDAR to END:VCALENDAR and saved it in a text file with the extension .ics.

Double clicked this and up pops iCal with the do you or don't you want to accept.

That all worked ok apart from the accept email bounced back (will try and find what the problem is)

Ok, my own sends from iCal was also getting bounced back.
It seems in 10.2.8 at least, iCal screws up the address by adding characters to the address.

If this happens to you, This is an easy fix. before you hit the send invite, click each attendees address and select to edit it. Take out any characters not part of the address and once you have done them all send them.

Also when I send myself an invite from iCal it arrives as an Attachment.

The problem I had with sending an acceptance when I got an invite from Outlook, seems to be a similar issue. the only way so far to solve this is to just send it let it bounce back and then copy the bounced back attachment and acceptance message, and past it in to a new email to the attendee.

The answer was when I copied and pasted the text from the email. I did not notice that the mail address had been truncated. so iCal would only see half of the email address. So now all I need to do to avoid this is to make sure the address is all together befor I save the file down.

It works perfectly fine without any glitch from Mac OS X 10.3.4 Panther.
