    Exclamation URGENT: Outlook appointment through VB.NET

    I have a program that will run off of my server and send an email to about 50 employees. This email will contain an attatched vCalendar item that needs to automatically go to their appointment list. How would I make this vCalendar file automatically go there without altering the client's Outlook?

    If the user has Outlook installed and opens the vCal attachment, Outlook will open the vCal as a new appointment automatically. The user then has the option of adding the appointment to his calendar. I don't know of any way to add the appointment to the user's calendar without the user's permission.

    Thanks. Is there any way at all (other than using the vCalendar file) that I can add an appointment without their permission?

    None that I know of, unless you have access to their Exchange server.
