I would like to send an e-mail to all the invitees to a meeting event in iCal. I cannot figure out how to do it.

I searched help, search the web, looked through Automator.

Any ideas?

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    hoffmanFamily4,

    When you create an event you should see this window:

    Click on "Add Invitees...," and enter the email addresses, or group names. This will allow you to use contacts/groups in your Address Book application.

    Also read: Mac Advisor - iCal 102 Tutorial for additional information.

    ;~)

    Thank you for you note.

    My use case is this: I have an existing meeting scheduled, I have to send an update or a conference bridge, something, to all the attendees. At work in Outlook I can right click and get an option to Reply to All and it brings up an e-mail that has all the invitees pre-populated in the TO field.

    I'll check out the source you mentioned.

    Thanks again.

    I would like to second the need for this feature in iCal - for use in a business environment, its a must and its a pain in the **s today to have to manually send the email and reference the meeting. A prime example is that I often have a document or presentation that is completed shortly before the meeting, and would like to distribute it to all attendees. A reply to all for an ical event makes this easy and you don't have reference what meeting it is for, its implicit.

    I too would like to request this feature. We need some way to easily write an email to all of a given event's invitees.
