Create TaskItems on exchange

I am building an ASP.NET we app and I need to be able to create a task and
add it to a users task list
(sending the task will also be ok as they could then click accept in the
email message through outlook)

I have currently use the Outlook Object model

ApplicationClass outLookApp = new ApplicationClass();
NameSpace NS = outLookApp.GetNamespace("MAPI");

// Create a new TaskItem.
TaskItem newTask =
// Configure the task at hand and save it.
newTask.Body = "Do some work now";
newTask.DueDate = DateTime.Now;
newTask.Importance = OlImportance.olImportanceHigh;
newTask.Subject = "This is a test task";
newTask.Recipients.Add( XXXX@XXXXX.COM );


This way is no good as it means that outlook will popup some security
warnings which need user input. I need a way to create the tasks and
add/send the task automatically.

You can use WebDAV to create/add task from ASP .NET and this will work.
Problem is to send task (task delegation).

If you need WebDAV API for Exchange server,
use our component WebDAV .NET for Exchange.
