Does Outlook Connector support iCalendar Meeting Requests?


Question:

Does Outlook Connector support iCalendar Meeting Requests?

Answer:

Outlook Connector supports iCalendar Meeting Requests in version 2.2.2 onwards. To enable iCalendar support, from the Outlook Connector Toolbar choose Accounts -> Miscellaneous and tick "Send meeting requests in iCalendar format"...

Possible issues to note:

1. The option above is the only option that will enable iCalendar support in an Outlook Connector profile. The option in Outlook at Tools -> Options -> Calendar Options -> "When sending meeting requests over the Internet, use iCalendar format" is ignored by the Outlook Connector account.

2. For iCalendar Meeting Requests to work correctly Outlook must be running the latest Service Pack available.

3. Outlook 2000 also requires "Post-Service Pack 3 Hotfix Package July 3, 2003". The hotfix is available for download at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823324/
