Folks,

I have "Mailback" email going out to folks that register for an event. The registration form is in BreezingForms. What I am trying to do is to attach an "ics" file so that they can add it to their local calendars. The attachment option in "MailBack" does not allow an "ics" file. Is there any way to accomplish this task with BreezingForms?

BTW. I added the files to a webserver and create a link in the email, but it downloads the file and does not open it.

Thanks,
Joe

Hello.

The ics file must be placed in a directory of your site, eg images.
In your form, you must have a text field in which the user will enter his email. In the advanced properties of this field, in the advanced properties of this field, the mailback option must be checked..
In Mailbackfile, you must enter the server path to the file, not the http path but the server path.
You can set it from the Joomla global configuration, system tab.
Path to Log Folder * = copy everything before administrator.
eg /home/myServer/mySiteFolder/
Then add the relative file path eg: images/myFile.ics (/home/myName/siteFolder/images/myFile.ics)
This will add the .ics file as an attachment to the mailback. See Attachment.
