As an e-mail user, imip-agent may already be working in the background on your behalf as you send and receive messages, depending on how the software has been configured.
If you are already using a mail program with calendar support, imip-agent can provide additional support for scheduling by publishing free/busy information for other calendar users. You can then configure your mail/calendar program to download this information.
If your mail program does not support calendar information or you are not completely happy with it, imip-agent provides a simple Web-based calendar management interface showing your schedule. Information on this facility should be provided in messages sent by the calendar system when events arrive. Otherwise, you can choose to visit the management interface directly.
The management interface provides a profile page through which you can change your preferences for the software. Here, you can change your level of participation in the calendar system and adjust its behaviour.
