MHC, the Message Harmonized Calendaring system, integrates well with MEW, Wanderlust and Gnus, and the MH system in general. But MHC is not particularly an EMACS application, there are numerous other programs to access MHC calendars.
The latest version of MHC can be found on the page behind the following URL. Note that, although, the contents of this page are in Japanese at the moment, MHC’s EMACS user interface is by default set to English.
To install MHC follow the instructions in the file
00readme and at the top of the file
emacs/mhc.el. With version snap20050220 (and probably others), the icons have to be installed manually, for example as follows.
mhc-current-snap20050220/iconsinto the directory
/usr/share/emacs/21.3/etc/mhc/iconsby using EMACS’ customization facility.
To further configure MHC, edit the EMACS customization group
