you may not find too many smaple in c# - your best bet would be to look for samples written on VB (or C++) and convert them

the MSDN at MS is a good place to start

I have some example code for c# to do what you need and more with Outlook.  If you provide your email address, I will send it to you.

Here is the one to mail an appointment, if you want other examples let me know.

// Must run the folling command to create wrapper for outlook/office
// tlbimp "c:\program files\microsoft office\office\msoutl9.olb"

using System;
using msoutl9;

namespace OutlookEmail
     /// <summary>
     /// Summary description for Class1.
     /// </summary>
     class Email
          public static msoutl9.Application objOutlook = new msoutl9.ApplicationClass();
          public static msoutl9.Folders objFolders = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").Folders;
          public static msoutl9.NameSpace objFolder = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI");
          static void Main(string[] args)

               msoutl9.Application objOutlook = new msoutl9.ApplicationClass();
               msoutl9.NameSpace objFolder = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI");
               msoutl9.Explorer objExplorer = objOutlook.Explorers.Add(objFolder.GetDefaultFolder(OlDefaultFolders.olFolderDrafts), OlFolderDisplayMode.olFolderDisplayNormal);

               msoutl9.AppointmentItem objAppointment = (msoutl9.AppointmentItem) objOutlook.CreateItem(OlItemType.olAppointmentItem);
               DateTime dtNow = DateTime.Now;
               objAppointment.Start = dtNow;
               objAppointment.End = dtNow.AddDays(3).AddMinutes(15);
               objAppointment.Body = "Appointment Message";
               objAppointment.ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 15;

               msoutl9.MailItem objMail = objAppointment.ForwardAsVcal();
               objMail.To = "user@localhost";
               objMail.Subject = "Important Appointment";
               objMail.Body = "Hi,\nHere is a new appointment for you.";
               objMail.Importance = msoutl9.OlImportance.olImportanceHigh;
