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

try the one here:


allows you to send out to mailing lists

Got it, it's used on a M.S. machine running IIS
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
