Here is what I would like to be able to do, I am not sure if this is possible.

I use Outlook 2003 with Exchange. Here is an example fo what I would like to do. I would like to send and email to Joe Schmoe reminding him of a meeting next week at 8pm. I would like this email to also add in an event to Joe's calendar for the meeting at 8pm. So basically, I can email a reminder to someone and it will make an entry onto their calendar.

Not sure if this is possible but I thought I'd ask.

Try this. Create a meeting in your calendar and then rt click that calendar item and forward it whomever you want to send.

They will get as a meeting and they can accept it.
The question here is Joe on the exchange server with you. If yes, just create a calendar event, Invite Attendees and include Joe. Once he accepts the request, it will be on his calendar.

If Joe is not on your exchange server, I believe it provides an email with an attachment, which they must open and then accept. But they must have Office 2003 open to do this, and it will be on their calendar.

Hope this helps.

If you are wondering about the reminder, just set the calendar reminder when you want it. If Mr. Schmoe accepts your request he will get a reminder whenever you do.
