Hi,

I have developed an outlook add-in in c# using vs2005 and vsto.

After attaching a file to an appointment item in my outlook
calender, i would like to forward this file to all invitees of the
meeting such that on receipt of the mail, the attachment automatically
gets saved to their outlook calender. Is there any way to do this

dark_sleauth,

What you want to do is have code on the recipient machines that will copy up the attachment to the calendar. The only responsible way to do this is to have trusted code on each workstation that knows how to handle the situation. To do this, you will want to create an add-in that is distributed to the client workstation. As long as that add-in is running your solution will work properly.

Here are some more resources to help you:

Thanks for your reply John. Could you tell me how I should about go about handling this via code Would i have to monitor each mail that comes in and check whether it contains the attachment and then copy it to the calender In that case i would have write code for the send - recieve event in outlook. Wouldnt that lower the performance at the client machine, if the client revieves a lot of mail
