Description

16 years ago
This menu item needs some functionality added to it.  Right now the data still
has to be pulled from the calendar and be automatically placed in the body of a
message compose window.  Format should be selectable based on the recipients
favoured groupware app.  Since there is a description of how Outlook handles
sending out meeting requests perhaps I'll look into formatting it in that manner
first (see bug 59630).  This is for sending out appointments only.

open composer with values filled for a calendar event

This patch opens composer and fills in all fields except for who the event is
to be sent to.	This is a first run, feel free to comment on its functionality.

more proper formatting of the date, apply this patch after previous patch

This patch just formats the date a little bit nicer, this was a request from

for rfc data see bug 122651 - calendar event requests should be sent in a
standards based format.

next step towards iMip calendar event sending

Currently missing:
- method= as part of the mime type header
- absolutely no s/mime even considered yet
- need a way to get around having to create a temp file in the user's profile
directory, ideally getting ical info would be as easy as using an URL so that I
could pass that URL to nsIMsgAttachment.url

Methods added in CVS for Mozilla 1.2.
We can now do:
  nsIMsgAttachment.contentType = "text/calendar";
  nsIMsgAttachment.contentTypeParam = "method=request";
  nsIMsgAttachment.charset = "UTF-8";
