Creating Appointments from Web Pages
I want to create an appointment in Outlook when the user clicks on a link on
the web page. Can anybody please tell me about the ways and the tools that
are available to this?
Thanks in advance,
Use Outlook to create an appointment, then save it as an .ics iCalendar =
file. Put the file on your web site and add a link to it.=20

UGH, I'm gonna start screaming!!!!! I KNOW that at some
point in time, I was able to view my Inbox and have my
task list displayed on the right side of the "window". I
could click off tasks as completed, even though I was
looking at my e-mail list. But for some odd reason, that
view went away and now I can't get it back.
Anyone know how to set up the view so that I can be
looking at my INbox message list and be able to see tasks
on the right?

Weve got Exchange 2003 with most of our clients using Outlook 2003 or 2000.
We have kept the Exchange 5,5 server on the domain purely because we have a
newsletter public (folder which receives newsletters we have subscribed to
over on the internet), and which uses an agent script that forwards these
mails to different people and public sub folders.
We cannot get rid of the exchange 5,5 server until we figure a way to
forward these emails. I have tried using the Folder assistant to assign a
rule which forwards the emails but they dont seem to be working, all the

there is any way of creating this folder without going to each of the

You'll have to script a solution. Nothing native in Exchange will let you do
this and deploy to existing users.

How does one set the default properties applied when
creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a
new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on
by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left
off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new
folder and then go in to customize it's properties.
You can do this by editing the Messages view; View-> Arrange By-> Current
View-> Define Views...
You might want to define a new view yourself and apply that view on first
use of that folder.
