Convert Exchange calendar to ical file


exchange2ical [-?V] [-?|--help] [--usage] [-f|--database=STRING] [-p|--profile=STRING] 
	[-P|--password=STRING] [-i|--icalsync=STRING] [-o|--filename=STRING] [-R|--range=STRING]
        [-d|--debuglevel=STRING] [--dump-data] [-V|--version]


exchange2ical provides a way to extract appointments from an Exchange calendar into the ical format. The ical is provided on stdout by default if the filename is not specified.




Set the path to the profile database to use


Set the profile to use. If no profile is specified, exchange2ical tries to retrieve the default profile in the database. If no default profile has been set, exchange2ical returns MAPI_E_NOT_FOUND .


Specify the password for the profile to use. This can be omitted if the password is stored in the profile.


Specify an icalendar file to be used to sync back to exchange.


Specify the filename for the icalendar output.  The specified file will be  overwritten with the new icalendar. If this is omitted, stdout will be used  by default.


Specify the range of exchange appointments to be converted into an icalendar.   If there are no events, whos start date is within the specified range,  an icalendar with no vevents will be returned. Format: MM/DD/YYYY-MM/DD/YYYY


Dump the hex data. This is only required for debugging or educational purposes.


Set the debug level.


Extract appointments from the Exchange calendar:

exchange2ical > appointments.ical

Extract appointments from the Exchange calendar to a specified path

exchange2ical --filename=/path/to/file.ics

Extract only appointments which begin from June 25 2008 to July 26 2009

exchange2ical --range=06/25/2008-07/26/2009


If you are using the default profile database path and have set a default profile (using mapiprofile --profile=profile_name -S ) you do not need to specify these parameters on the command line.
