Hi,

I have successfully sent a meeting request from my java program to outlook using java.mail.* api. Now i am looking to go in for sending a task in place of a meeting request from my java program.

I did look around for some samples but not getting any. Anyone has any idea on this?

Sample code to send meeting request is done using the following:

<quibbling over words>You can't send anything to Outlook - it's a client application. You can only send something to a mail server like Exchange.</quibbling over words>

The easiest would probably be to send a link to a web app that shows a page containing those two buttons, and which can evaluate a form submission and do whatever you want done with the results. if you want to disambiguate between users, you can append an encrypted userID as a parameter to the link.
