Without installing ITunes, and without attaching my IPad3 to my PC, I want to synchronize my IPad calendar with my Outlook calendar.
I thought I could make this work by creating the following Outlook rule:
"Send an alert to my mobile device when I get messages from someone"
With the option:
"Which is a meeting invitation or update"
I then specifiy that I want the invite forwarded to my gmail account, which my IPad is linked to.
I don't know if this would have worked, because this Outlook rule doesn't seem to execute when a meeting invite arrives. However, when I attempt to manually forward a meeting invite I've received, I notice that an ical attachment is present. I can then manually add it to my calendar. Not so bad!
However, it would be even cooler if the IPad "auto-added" the ical notice to my calendar as the emails (with icals attached) arrive. Is there a way to configure an auto-accept (particularly an auto-accept from a specific e-mail address)?
p.s. And while we're discussing this, does anyone know why Outlook would fail to execute the rule I defined?
