I have a program that creates the meeting request as an .ics file, this file can then be attached to an email. The meeting request is stored in an outlook user's calendar when she opens the attachment and click accept.
Is there any way to send a meeting request to outlook using the Java mail api instead of sending it as an attachment in an email. When the user will click on such a request, it opens, she then accepts/rejects it.
I want to emulate outlook's manual meeting request process as closely as possible.
Thanks in advance, Anu

JavaMail only supports the mail standards like SMTP and MIME. Anything else is a Exchange/Outlook-specific extension, and I doubt that there are Java libraries available that support those. Of course, now that Microsoft has laid open the Exchange protocols, you can use those to roll your own.
You might also want to look at the Bedework project which is a standards compliant, Java calendaring system. Take a look at the Open Connector project as well for ideas. [ October 27, 2008: Message edited by: Rob Prime ]
