Automatically create iCal entry with an email alarm from a Mail.app email?

Hi..
Hope you can help?
I want to set up iCal/Mail.app so that it automatically creates a new iCal entry in a specific calendar when an email is received that contains a date in the body of the message...
Is there a way of doing this with Automator?
This reason I am asking is that I am trying to put a link on my online store where people can click for a gift reminder email that will be sent to them on a date they specify in the body of their email.
The link could pop-up a new email window pre-filled with Subject: 'Gift Reminder' and addressed to '[email protected]' They would be instructed to enter a single date in the text area and press Send...
Then, when Mail.app receives the email, it would move it to a Folder called 'Gift Reminders' and automatically set up a new iCal entry that has an alarm to email the sender on that date with an email containing the Subject 'The Gift Reminder you Requested' etc and some different text in the body... It would be great if this could be set up to repeat annually also as the gift reminder is primarily for birthday gifts...
Id there an Automator script / plug-in or way of making this happen??
Any help greatly appreciated, though my knowledge of scripts / Automator etc is quite limited I am willing to try out any suggestions!
Thanks,
Jon.

Tried a restart which showed 2183 emails unable to move which is kind of bonkers and had to quit Mail> restart and moving emails from search now appears to be working. Apple owes me about 500 hours of my life so far with Mavericks!

  • Email sent from outside Mail app sits in outbox?

    Whenever I try to send an email from outside the Mail app it just sits in my Outbox until I go in and re-send what I thought I'd already sent. Very annoying, any way to fix this? I sync email with Google Sync and Yahoo.

    They are in your Library folder, but it is now hidden in Lion. You can unhide it by either:
    hold Option key and to to Go Menu in Finder - Library will be there. Once open you can drag its' icon into the Sidebar if you want.
    Or, you can use this terminal command:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library
    Once in the Library, there is the Mail folder. Please note that they are now in a folder named "V2" and the format is not compatible with Snow Leopard. You can try putting your folders there, but I do not know if that will work, especially since they are from 10.5.

  • Where are my email messages from the Mail app located in Lion?

    I copied all my email messages from my PowerMac with OS X 10.5 and want to copy them to my MacBook with OS X 10.7, but I can't find the folder in Lion where email messages are stored for the Mail application. Where have they been moved to? I have been using 10.5 for a long time and am not aware of changes like this to the new OS.

  • How do i transfer a folder of emails dragged from old mail app on old mac?

    I have a folder of emails that I received whilst my old MBP was getting fixed. I have since dragged the emails i need into a folder and would like to add to my new mac? Is this possible?

    Welcome to Apple's discussion groups.
    What is the format of those emails and how did you create them? Exactly what do you mean by "add to my new mac"?

  • Creating iCal entries based on date/time appearing in text on any app

    One thing I like about iCal's integration with Apple Mail is that the mail client is able to sense dates and times in email messages and then allow you to create iCal entries. But it seems that this date and time sensing is only limited to Apple Mail when technically users could potentially want to create iCal entries when a date and time appears on any app, such as on a web page in a web browser, in a PDF, or a word processing document. It seems logical then for iCal to be integrated with OS X's text services, so that at least if I highlighted a date and time, I could right click on it and bring up an option to create an iCal entry on based on that date and time.
    Does anyone know if this feature is natively supported (for which I have yet to enable), or is there a third party app out there that will allow me to do this?

    Just a quick update. I tried the first two -- text2cal and Calendar Creator -- and they don't seem to work on OS X 10.6.6.
    However, on another note, I found some discussion regarding Snow Leopard's enhanced data detectors being natively able to do what I've been looking for. But I just can't seem to get it to work on my computer:
    "Enhanced Data Detectors now link dates, times and other items found in text to actionable items in other applications, like iCal. For example, a drop-down menu that automatically appears when you select the time or date parts in a text enables you to create a new iCal event from a selected date or show the date in iCal."

    It's call fixed/static background, and it is NOT directly support by iweb, you will need post processing either in html or javascript.

    Hmm, no, my 1.5.2 instance logs script responses twice- once to say it is executing and again after the process terminates to say that it ran. The second entry is where any stdout is printed. I don't know of any setting that would turn this off, it has always been there for me.
    A typical script response log entry looks like this:
    Summary
    "response \[Response Title] script triggered by Subscription \[Subscription Title] complete"
    Detail
    "response complete, completed command /fcsvrbin/\[scriptname.sh] with arguments { 43, 8 } "
    "stdout would print here, if there is any"
    You probably already tried it, but try filtering your log search for "script triggered" since it can be easy to miss spotting entries on a busy system, and they don't necessarily show up side by side in the logs with the other responses in their respective stack.

  • How can I automatically create the files with serie-name?

    Hello, Everyone,
    I have a question again.
    How can I automatically create the file with a serie-filename?
    e.g. I have a program, it will repeat 5 times, and every time it will create a bmp-file, and I want to let this program automatically save these 5 files with a Serie-filename like File001.bmp, File002.bmp, .... File005.bmp.
    How can I do it?`
    Thanks a lot.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    Or this - Delete the account in Mail and then set it up again. Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Accounts   Tap on the Account, then on the red button that says Remove Account.

    Is it too much to ask from apple, an option for different volumes levels from different apps, including alarm, text, email, basically from every posible app?

    My daughter has had her Razr for about 9 months now.  About two weeks ago she picked up her phone in the morning on her way to school when she noticed two cracks, both starting at the camera lens. One goes completely to the bottom and the other goes sharply to the side. She has never dropped it and me and my husband went over it with a fine tooth comb. We looked under a magnifying glass and could no find any reason for the glass to crack. Not one ding, scratch or bang. Our daughter really takes good care of her stuff, but we still wanted to make sure before we sent it in for repairs. Well we did and we got a reply from Motorola with a picture of the cracks saying this was customer abuse and that it is not covered under warranty. Even though they did not find any physical damage to back it up. Well I e-mailed them back and told them I did a little research and found pages of people having the same problems. Well I did not hear from them until I received a notice from Fed Ex that they were sending the phone back. NOT FIXED!!! I went to look up why and guess what there is no case open any more for the phone. It has been wiped clean. I put in the RMA # it comes back not found, I put in the ID #, the SN# and all comes back not found. Yet a day earlier all the info was there. I know there is a lot more people like me and all of you, but they just don't want to be bothered so they pay to have it fix, just to have it do it again. Unless they have found the problem and only fixing it on a customer pay only set up. I am furious and will not be recommending this phone to anyone. And to think I was considering this phone for my next up grade! NOT!!!!
