We accept invitaions of events dailey here. I have a user that is now a secretery to an orginization for work here. He needs to send out an invitaion and we would like end users to be able to accept the invitation and add to their Outllook calendar. Can someone suggest a pain free way of doing this?

Creating an event in your outlook and sending out won't work since it's going out to 400 end users

can't really do that in outlook
you need to buy (or implement)  a mailinglist manager.

yes, sorry it runs on a webserver.  its not exaclty what you are asking for, but  to email around 400 you will need some kind of mailing software, and you will need to put the email addresses into the system.

another system I hvae seen used is:

chilternPC: thanks,

Constant contact is pretty nice except it does not allow you to include a link/button to allow the recipient to add an invitation to his/her Outlook calendar.
