Work with Outlook meeting requests in Mail
Authored by: Steffan Stringer on Aug 06, '04 06:07:57AM

Does this funcionality depend on the version of Exchange server that's being used?

I didn't get an attachment at all just this message...

When: Friday, August 06, 2004 09:00-09:30 (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada).
Where: Steffan's Office

If I view the Raw Source (I paste part of the text here) it gives the Exchange server version as 5.5.2653.12......

Work with Outlook meeting requests in Mail

I have the same behaviour i.e. text only invitation with no .ics attachment and no BEGIN:VCALENDAR to END:VCALENDAR, and I'm using OS X 10.3.4 mail.app on the same exchange server version as Steffan. Could be something there.

Header snip:

[code]<META NAME=3D"Generator" CONTENT=3D"MS Exchange Server version =
5.5.2653.12">
<TITLE>Kick Off Meeting for foo bar</TITLE>
</HEAD>[/code]

body of message looks like:

When: Wednesday, March 24, 2004 12:00 PM-1:00 PM (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada); Tijuana.
Where: Meeting Room

Just an fyi. If you're seeing the above, you're using exchange 5.5. To get working .ics files, the exchange server (actually, the bridge server) needs to be running exchange 2000 or 2003. Preferably 2003.

Once that happens, you'll get usable .ics files.
