Tip 369: Emailing a Calendar

How can I send my monthly calendar to someone within Outlook 2003?

Let me count some of the ways:

  1. Use a word template and either send it as a document or save as HTML. See Calendar Tools for Outlook for templates.
  2. Use Custom View Data in Another Program.
  3. If you both have Visio, use the Import Outlook Data Wizard to create a calendar from Outlook data. You can filter it to include only certain appointments. Send the .vsd file as an attachment.
  4. Use VBA to create an HTML-format mail message containing any single day's appointment list or 30 days of appointments. Look for code samples at:
    Sending a mail message with today's appointments
    Mail 30 Days of Appointments
  5. Or you can upgrade to Outlook 2010 (or 2007) and send the calendar as an iCalendar attachment
