I use SeaMonkey as my browser/email/html engine.  I would use Safari/Mail if it was more integrated, but that is another tale.  Right now, I get various meeting notices in my email, that I put into the Seamonkey calendar attached to the email client.


I would like to have these calendar events moved automatically into iCa (sync between Seamonkey and iCal


l.  From what I can tell, publish and subscribe refer to the web, but I just want to move these event between programs on my computer.


Is there any way to do this?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), I7, 8GB, 750GB, Lion

    OK, figured it out. 


    Open Apple Calendar

    1) Click on File/Export/Export

    2) Nagivate to Chosen folder, or create one  "Calendar Exchange" works

    3) Name your iCal file (Work, Personal, Birthdays......) for saving, i.e. "Apple Work"

    4) Press Export button.  Creates file "Apple Work.ics" in folder Calendar Exchange.

    5) Repeat for other calendars (Work, Personal, Birthdays......)


    Open SeaMonkey Calendar

    1) Click on Events and Tasks/Export

    2) Select calendar to export (Work, Personal, Birthdays......). I use the same names as in Apple Calendar, i.e. "Lightening Work".

    3) Repeat for other calendars (Work, Personal, Birthdays......)


    You now have a folder CALENDAR EXCHANGE with parallel files APPLE WORK.ics, LIGHTENING WORK.ics, etc.


    To read an Apple calendar into Seamonkey /LIghtening, click on Click on Events and Tasks/Import and follow the instructions.


    To read a Seamonkey/Lightening calendar into Apple Calendar, click onFile/Import /Import and follow the instructions.


    While this is not automatic, it does work.  ou can email the .ics files to others for them to import.

    Forgot to point out that when Exporting from Seamonkey/Lightening, make sure to set the Format ppull down menu at the bottom to .ics.  Otherwise, it defaults to .html which is useless.
