i would need recipients with Outlook/or Equivalent(blackberry etc) to receive calendar events in Outlook Calendar event format, not an ical attachement.This is to enable me use outlook calendar specific headers (Anyone knows what these header commands are?) like cancel, modify etc.I figured that i am just missing the correct MIME header string which Outlook needs to interpret the email as an Outlook calendar. All my clients use Outlook based mail softwares (over a 1000 of them).
I'm working on a little training micro site for our Internal network and one of the items I want to add is the ability to click on a link I create which would send an "Outlook Calendar Item" email to the user. Been doing a couple of Google Searches, but can't seem to hit the right phrase:
PHP + Add to Outlook Calendar PHP email + Add to Outlook Calendar PHP email Outlook Calendar item
Is it possible to open Outlook Calendar from an email link or a webpage? I am looking for code that will open the recipient's Outlook Calendar. I don't want to populate the calendar with anything - just open Outlook Calendar so they themselves can block out some time.
i would like to be able to sync contact details with ical (mac) and outlook for a website im doing, does anyone know how to do this, if its possible? for example file formats, ways of sending data to the apps? are there any good online resouces regarding this?
This works fine when importing into outlook 2007 (as well as Google calendar). In outlook 2003 I get the following error:
"This error can appear if you have attempted to save a recurring Lunar Calendar in iCalendar format. To avoid this error, set the appointment option to Gregorian instead of Lunar."Is there something I need to change in the .ics file to get this to work with Outlook 2003? (I don't have Outlook 2003 to test with at the moment)
i am using drupal events calendar and i am creating events. Now i want to view these events automatically in the Microsoft Outlook calendar when i look into my outlook. Currently i am exporting the drupal calendar events as calendar.ics files and then importing them in the outlook manually. How can i automate this process? I am sure that Outlook can import files of format ".ics" and so i am just curious to know how can i import an ics file into my Outlook, or put in other way, how to add events to outlook calendar with php ?
I am developing an intranet application in PHP with the Zend Framework. One of the features the client would like to have is the ability to click a link and have Outlook open a new message window addressed to everyone in a specific group.
So far I have been using a mailto link and comma separating the addresses, but this doesn't work if the combined length of the email addresses is too long.
I could use a mailto link addressed to an alias and have another program or script intercept the email, read the database and forward the email to everyone in that group. I'm not sure how I could achieve this though.
Any Google search on PHP ical just brings up phpicalendar and how to parse or read IN ical files. I just want to write a PHP file that pulls events from my database and writes them out in ical format. My problem is I can't find anywhere that will answer two questions:
What is the exact ical format, including headers, file format, footers, etc.? In other words, what does the file have to have, exactly, in order to be properly read in by Google Calendar, etc.? If I build this file using a .php extension, how do I publish it as ical? Do I have to write to a new .ics file? Or will Google Calendar etc. read a .php file as ical so long as the contents are in the correct format? (Much like a style.css.php file will be read as a CSS file if the contents are actually CSS, etc.)
I'm using [URL}....ec/index for a nice User Generated Calendar but it doesn't have the function of sending an email to me when someone posts an event. I'd really like this feature and I really like this calendar.It's all open source, so you'll be able to play with the code and look at it all.
I am trying to send an email to approx 2,000 people every time a new event is added to a calendar. I'm guessing that I can't just call mail() 2,000 times, but I'm not real sure how to do this. I was thinking either a cron job that was called every minute, or a script that could be started from the webpage that would run in the background and process a queue.
So now when I run this code in Firefox, I got a pop-up asking to open the generated ics file using the Microsoft Outlook and I opened it and saved it to outlook and finally an event is added in outlook.
But is there a way I can automate this process? I mean, can I store the event in Outlook calendar directly from a php script, without needing to generate an ics file and saving it?
I am using the iCalCreator class to create an event for user to load into their personal calendars. Here's the info, for those unfamiliar with it: http:[url]....
Using the documentation, right on the homepage, I'm able to create an event and output it to the browser. No problems. The issue is that when it is imported (I'm testing on Outlook, but I'm expecting this to persist to other calendar software) it imports as a new calendar, with one event in it. I want the event to go right into your regular calendar.
Does anyone have experience iCalCreator and know how I can make this happen?
Anyone knows how i can add a anchor to a web page that will force an Outlook Calendar file download? I need the file to open with outlook and the calendar info to be added to the user's calendar.How can I create the MS outlook calendar files? Is there a standard/documented way I can create these calendar files using a script/automated way? (the script will be written in php)
I am working on a project management system where in a project manager assigns a task to a resource on a particular project. Once this is assigned, the resource would receive an email informing him / her that an activity has been assigned. In this same email I also need to include a link on click of which the activity would be automatically saved in the outlook of the resource. The resource can then look at all his / her activities for the week or for the month that has been already assigned to him / her in outlook itself. how to get this done? The activity / task will have dynamic fields like Project Name and Task name and will also be associated with a particular time and date.
After a user adds 5 emails and their name to form below, and then hits the "send" button, I would like to send a message such as "Hello, your friend 'sendername' recommends that you use [URL]. visit the site." I would also like to specify the from address that this email has on it. What PHP script could do this?
I sound like a spammer but these emails are completely legitimate email confirmations for people that have signed up for an account on this website we developed. These emails all make it through to various mail providers (gmail, yahoo, aol, hotmail/live) but they always get directed into the Outlook Junk Email folder. I am have tried using Zend Framework mail, PEAR Mail and phpMailer. All of those methods result in the same thing happening.
This seemed to start happening after Microsoft released their update to the Outlook Junk Email filter in January of this year.
As you can see we are using the PEAR Mail functionality in this test. This is the most basic test we could run and the above generated email gets dumped into the Outlook Junk Email folder. We have reverse DNS on the mail server and it matches the forward DNS, SPF and DKIM are set up and there is nothing "spammy" with the above content.
I hope somone can help im trying to create a file in any laguage (asp, php...) that will allow me to send a meeting request to users on outlook and entourage from my company intranet. The idea is that people can insert information and someone else will select who is taking part then the meeting request will be sent to the persons email inbox so they can accpet the meeting.
Is there a way to send email on Linux to an Exchange Server from PHP and/or other tools when there is *NOT* SMTP access?
Has anyone figured out a way to use PHP to get inside an OWA (Microsoft Outlook Web Access) website to send email that way?
The reason I ask is because my corporate office is going to do away with our rogue SMTP server access and force everything through Exchange Server. This makes it hard for our batch scripts on the Linux server to relay to internal email accounts that a job has failed or other errors.
I am currently working on a PHP project that involves a calendar. We need to send emails out when a meeting is set. Now, we want the email to be in a format so that when received by outlook it is recognized as a meeting request and accept/deny/tentative etc. buttons show up at the top (just as it does when meeting request is sent out from outlook to outlook.)Now, we were able to make .ics files and can send it as attachment, but we would like to do it so it is not an attachment and user do not have to click twice to open it up and see it like outlook request.As a note, when event invitation is sent from Google calendar and received by outlook it does do what we are trying to do (outlook immediately shows it as meeting request), but we so far could not figure out how it is done
I have gathered a list of emails and concatenated them into a string, for the purpose of using them to send emails out. I don't want to use the mail(), because I just want MS Outlook to open and put the list of emails stored in a var in the CC box.
This way the user can put whatever information they need into the email and click send and it will send it. Is it possible to put it into the CC box or is it just better for the user to use the mailto code in HTML.
I was curious to know if anyone was experienced any difficulty in receiving PHP generated emails with file attachments using Outllook XP as their mail client. I have used PHPMailer, as well as other classes to accomplish this functionality, and has worked just fine in all other clients, except my client just updated their software to XP... I thought perhaps the encoding could be slightly different, any thoughts?
I coded what I thought would send html email from a website. The code actually works in Apple's mail program, Yahoo mail and gmail, but not in MS Outlook. In Outlook all the html tags are printed in the email. In the other email all the html tags are handled properly. Is it my code or is it another instance of MS doing its own thing?
