I use iCal on both iPad and iMac; I would like the option to have an email sent to me by way of a reminder for some appointments but when I try to set this up on my iMac I get a message saying that I need to have a card in Contacts with my details on; in Contacts there is a card with my full details on it and my name in the list has a grey silhouette beside it, siginifying that I am the main user. I'd welcome a clue as to how to set this up; I'm sure I've done it before but can't now find anything which will guide me through.

    Click on your card in Contacts, then select Contacts>Card>Make This My Card.


    If that is not successful, delete, and recreate your card. Then once again make sure to designate it "Make This My Card."
