And whose "non-standard's based calendar wins?" Alternatively, "When do you want to meet?" in a plain text message works everywhere.

Everywherishness isn't important to me. Auto-checking the availability of conference rooms, conference call lines, and projectors is.

If you are scheduling meeting rooms, then you can assume assent if no one else is meeting.

Not without a scheduling system that auto-confirms for the room, and allows higher-priority people to bounce you.

If you are scheduling people, you need buy-in....unless they work for you and you can order them to go. So automated scheduling simply does not work across organizations.

I use it betwen *companies* -- the fact that they can have it automatically show up on their calendar as a tentative appointment and use that to address conflicts is a great boon.

I can never see a situation where it would be appropriate to deliver a presentation by e-mail that a URL to a web site would not be superior.

When I want the presentation material to end up at their end, of course. And when I only one the content making one trip over the net rather than every time they ned to view it.

Especially not in the mailing list context.

A mailing list is nothing but a delivery strategem (store-and-forward) with an addressing mode (broadcast) over a particular set of protocols. Nothing about that seems inappropriate to me.

I totally disagree. Again: if a list also meets off-list or by chat, integrated scheduling would be a boon. For that matter, delivering a usable Java or ActiveX chat thin-client in a message body would be as well.

Suicidal. Microsoft has even turned off active X and Java by e-mail by default.

Fix the problem, don't throw your hands up. I *want* the damn thing to be able to start by itself when it is opened or previewed.
