Need help please: Have Exchange 2003 in Windows 2003 using Outlook 2003. We also house an AS400 without any email applications. Need to find a way for Exchange to accept appointments from the AS400 and to be placed directly into the recipients calendar. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mark

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not familiar with the structure of an Exchange/Outlook calendar entries, but you could use the “Create Mail Message (QzmfCrtMailMsg) API” to send messages directly from OS/400. You can send anything you want from your AS400, so if you know what the appointment entry has to look like to Outlook it should be able to work. You’ll have to make sure your AS400 is configured to handle the e-mail. There are several decent articles on how to do that on the WEB.

    The obvious answer is to obtain the specs for remote appointment access from Microsoft documentation and start programming. Why would you expect the info to be here rather than at the Microsoft web site? Tom

    Consider creating a vCalendar file and sending it attached to an e-mail. According to Microsoft, the basics are easy. It's just a text file. Tom
