    Do not forget we have a calendar now!

    The new forum software comes with an event calendar. All users have permission to submit events for inclusion on the calendar and they will come to me for approval. Once approved, they will show to all users.

    I would encourage state groups and instructors to all make use of the calendar and for all users to visit it often to see what is going on near you!

    Would really like a personal calender where I could log dinners, council meetings, events and such.

    Have to wonder how a forum wide calender would function - seems like every meet-up (most stickies) would swamp the process, particularly during the summer. Are you prepared for the onslaught?

    Mozilla.org Lightning/Sunbird. Lightning integrates with their e-mail program. (An integer version update is impending and the 'add ons' are a bit in flux catching up.)

    Appreciate the reference - have taken a quick look and like what I see - will look more in depth the first of the week.

    Do you know if it compatible with all email, Outlook particularly, or does that not make a difference if you use Mozillla?

    To integrate Lightning with an SMTP client requires 'hooks' that are only in Thunderbird/Mozilla products - that I know of. I believe Sunbird, the stand alone calendar product, can send ICS formatted stuff through your SMTP client.

    It may be wise to wait on version v.4, that should be soon, I have v.4 Beta 1 browser now. I'm only a user so don't take too much as gospel.
