My OS is windows 7.  Sometimes I send emails that invite people to events and I would like to add a link that says "Add this to your Outlook Calendar', which will do what it says.  How does one insert this into an outgoing email?
Q Can this be added only from Outlook 2007 when creating the email, or can this feature  be added  to any email client, i.e. Thunderbird and others?  But the feature will work if the receipient uses Outlook.

Thank u.

Why not create a meeting request from the calendar.  This will ask the person you are inviting to accept or decline the meeting.  If they accept, it automatically puts it in their calendar.

You can use a distribution list for invitations, works equally well as individual invitations.

1. Create a meeting request, fill out all the information and add recipients.
2. Click the save button to save it on your calendar
3. Save it as an iCal file somewhere on your drive

To get this as an Hyper-link,we need to move this .ics to any HTTP server\folder

Add the hyperlink with the content to --> https://localhost/Welcome%20to%20ICS.ics (similar too,....as i have IIS on the same box)
