Send iCal notifications via your favourite e-mail application.
iCal has the great ability to e-mail notifications for events (great for sending reminders to your cellphone!). The only problem is that it forces you to use Apple's Mail application. Select from the installers listed below to update iCal so that it uses your e-mail application instead of Mail for e-mailing notifications (currently supporting Entourage, Eudora, Mailsmith, PowerMail, and GyazMail -- if there's another application you'd like to see supported please let us know. Note that Thunderbird currently lacks the Applescript support required and PostBox has built-in support for this functionality).

Note that to remove this and revert to using Mail you can open iCal as a package (by right/control-clicking on iCal),
go to the Resources->Scripts folder, delete Mail.scpt and rename OldMail.scpt to Mail.scpt. You will have to do the same for iCal Helper, which can be found in the CalendarStore.framework (within System->Library->frameworks).
