I'd really like to ditch Outlook for Mac 2011 because i'm having reliability issues.  The only thing stopping me is that I need to be able to email everyone on the invite list for meetings.  I can't find a way of doing that in iCal, which means I need to use Outlook for my calendar.  Any ideas?

    Greetings Jimbo,


    There may be a more elegant solution than the one I use but I'll tell you how I do this (I do it all the time).


    When I want to email my entire list of invitees for a meeting I double-click the event with all the invitees in iCal, click in the invitee field, do a command + A (select all), a command + C (copy), go to my new email window and click in the "To" field and do a command + V (paste).  All done.


    I use the keyboard commands to make this a very quick process.  One can of course use the commands in the Edit menu should you prefer that.


    Hope that helps.

    Hi MadisonP,


    Thanks for replying.  It just struck me that it must be possible to automate what you're doing using either Automator or AppleScript.  I'll post a topic and see if anyone knows how to do it because i had a quick look at Automator and couldn't figure it out.

    I tried this solution, but it pastes all of my contacts as 1 string instead of seperating them.  Has anyone else seen this?  Seems like the list of invitees should be delimited somehow.
