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.
accepting bug, this is my next task to work on. making blocker of mail tracking bug.
Created attachment 77452 [details] [diff] [review] 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.
Created attachment 77472 [details] [diff] [review] 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 email@example.com
for rfc data see bug 122651 - calendar event requests should be sent in a standards based format.
Saving danp from being alone and talking to himself. :)
Created attachment 78956 [details] [diff] [review] 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
this would be all platforms and OSs
> Currently missing: > - method= as part of the mime type header Methods added in CVS for Mozilla 1.2. We can now do: nsIMsgAttachment.contentType = "text/calendar"; nsIMsgAttachment.contentTypeParam = "method=request"; nsIMsgAttachment.charset = "UTF-8";
Reassigning to Clint since he's dealing with all things iMIP/iTIP these days.
Sending iMIP events from the event dialog is possible by now. Nominating for WFM.
