    OutLook just is a software that is used to manage emails. It doesn't care your account type. What do you mean the "gmail client"?

  • I mean that the sender is a gmail acount and the receiver also, so the calendar invitation should work with google calendar.

    Can this code help me with that?

  • As Neil Hu mentions, just send the email with an ICS attachment. ICS is a standard iCalendar invite file. Email clients (that support calendars - which most do) should allow the user to click on the file and add it to their calendar.

    If the user's email client doesn't support calendars then there is nothing you can do as there is nothing to add it to.
