How to import Calendars/Events from other messaging clients?


This FAQ shows you how to import iCal formatted Calendars exported from other Messaging platform such as Gmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc...

First make sure you log into our New Email Services platform via the WebMail interface available at the following URL:

 

http://mail.<your domain name>

 

Where <your domain name> is the domain name portion of your email address after the "@" symbol. For example, if your email address is "john@example.com", then "example.com" in this case, is <your domain name>.

 

In this case, your Webmail interface URL would be: http://mail.example.com

 

In addition, make sure you check the "Standard" Webmail interface option instead of the default "Basic". This will give you a full AJAX based Webmail Interface, enabling Drag & Drop, Smart Tip-Tool, and many other interactive user interface elements. Whereas, the "Basic" option provides compatibility with almost all browsers, but without any of the AJAX functionalitiy!

 

Please log into your WebMail interface now before proceeding with the following instructions.

 

Please note that ONLY iCal (.ics) formatted Calendars are supported at this time. The iCal format is generally supported by majority of modern Messaging platforms. For specific instructions on exporting Calendar/Events as iCal Calendar from your existing messaging platform, please refer to the help documentation included with that platform.
