    I've had a look around iCal and don't see an obvious way to do this.

    Basically, what I want to do is have certain calendar events email a reminder to me every month. I'm bad with remembering bill payments, so an email reminder saying that there's a direct debit coming out will ensure I don't drink that money away.

    Best way to do something like this?

    When you add a new event there is a drop down menu under ALERT. There you will see the option to "email". When you choose that option you will be prompted.

    So you add an event by clicking on a day and filling out the info, when you get to alert- choose email.

    You can also just choose to have a Message pop up on your Desktop, with or without an accompanying sound.

    I dont do email alerts, i have it pop up as a push-like notification on my iphone AND pop up on my computer (and any other synced computers)

    Do you have an iphone or other smart phone?

    I can't find the alert options :confused: This is using iCal right?

    This and an email would be ideal!



    EDIT: doh. It's under alarm. Can't believe I overlooked that..

    Cheers for help guys.

    ok, double click on any day. When you do that it will create a new event and there will be a little speech bubble pop up.

    In there you see all of the options. Towards the bottom you see ALERT.. if you click on that you see EMAIL

    Just look at the images I attached
