Hi,
I'm working on a ASP.net (build on framework 3.5) system that generate quotes. Those quotes have an expiration date.

When a quote is created I currently send a email to multiple recipients that need to be informed about this quote, with the information on that quote.

Now I need to send a Calendar entry for ours Lotus Notes (version 8) email client to have reminder about the expiration Date of this quote.
This reminder will be sent separately because it need to be send to a different recipient, but the important part is that I already got my system send E-mails.

My boss said that he currently receive meeting appointment form external sources (that are likely do don’t use notes), he said that the appointments are integrated in notes.

I made a quick search and I found reference about "ICalendar" is that what I need (Would it be "integrated" in Lotus notes) and how could i deal with it in ASP.NET?

Here is an article on how to generate an email with an ICS calendar attachment.  Lotus Notes should be able to recognize the calendar appointment: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/CalendarAppointment.aspx

I tested the iCalendar file and Notes eat it transparently.
Thanks.
