    Thanks Ricklous. I like what I see of Rainlender and it will read the calender straight out of my outlook pst. Great! Unobtrusive is right.

    But I can't find Rainlender stores its own data. because I think I want to point the calender plugin to this file?

    I see Rainlender with read ical but not convinced that it will create and maintain an ical file.

    It stores its own 'ini' format data in c:\documents and settings\your user name\Application data\Rainlender, but its in an 'ini' format which i doubt is compatible with the Calender plugin. I wouldnt worry though, in the past ive set it to read/write both my outlook pst file and read/write my ical file and it updates to both. I dont think you can actually create the initial ical file with rainlender but you can definatly maintain it.

    If you are trying to get the data in your outlook calender into the calender plugin and editable by outlook and rainlender, the way i would go about it would be to use the remotecalender plugin to publish your outlook calender to an ical file, and point the calender plugin to this file, but point rainlender to outlook. that way you can edit rainlender, which will update outlook, which will update the published iCal file which will update the Calender plugin....i think!

    a bit of experimentation is called for but i reckon you could get it working.

    Time for a brew first though
