Sending an email using a calendar entry

In Episode 1 of Automators, Rosemary indicated that while (whilst?) one can no longer trigger an AppleScript routine from a calendar event, you can do so using an Automator script. I tried using such an approach to send an email, but although an email was sent, it was merely the title of the email - not the content. Running the Automator app outside of calendar did indeed send the whole email. I used the Alert “email at time of event” after creating an automator routine consisting of “New Mail Message” and “Send Outgoing Message” . Could someone perhaps explain the correct approach approach? Thanks!


It’s definitely working for me, here’s a sample Automation calendar alarm that does it:

P.S. Don’t forget Automators has a forum :wink:
