Hi,

I've got a project which requires me to directly insert an calender item directly into the users outlook calender using .NET.

I've done some research and can see the only way would be webdav...


Does anyone have any recommendations or best ways of doing this? A simular example would be great!

Unfortunately, it has to insert the item via exchange and not the users outlook client.

Thank you,

Nick
