We have a BlackBerry Storm and Tour. Outlook 2007 at work (32 bit) and

Outlook 2007 at home (64 bit). Invitations to calendar items from work come

into the BlackBerries as emails that can be accepted (just like from one

computer with Outlook to another) but invitations to calendar items from home

cannot be accepted to the calendar, they come in only as e-mail attachments.

Being that the only difference between the computers is that one is 64 bit,

could that be the problem? We cannot find any other setting that seem to

cause this.

And you might say, just synch the BlackBerries to the computers - but

there's a failure on that also, not to mention I don't necessarily want all

the calendar items from work on the BlackBerry.

How do you sync each computer to the BB? Do you use BIS at home and BES at

work?

The BlackBerries are new for us. We haven't yet synched because we tried

several times at home using Desktop Manager 4.7 which came with the BB Storm

and it seemed to get almost all the the way through then fail. We then

realized that we didn't really need to synch everything anyway, we simply

need for "invitations" to Outlook Calendar items to be received by the

BlackBerry in such a way that they can be accepted and automatically added to

the calendar - but that fails from home.

Thanks for any suggestions you can give!!

How are the accounts configured on the blackberry? Do both the home and

work accounts get mail the exact same way? How do they get the mail? Is one

using BIS and the other BES?

Both are BIS, Windows XP Professional, Outlook 2007, and so I thought they

should function exactly the same, shouldn't they?

They should work the same, provided the TNEF data isn't removed or both are

sent as ics, not vcals. I know BIS doesn't handle attachments and some

things as well as BES, but its been awhile since I used BIS and I don't

recall if meeting requests was one of the things.

We are not trying to import or export, just using the "Invitation" option. I

don't really know what it all means, but it looks to me like we're TNEF, not

ics or vcals.

I had someone else at work send my office computer an invitation and I sent

it an invitation from home. (To my office computer so I could view the coding

under "Message Options") This is how they were similar/different.

Home:

Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;

name="winmail.dat"

Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

Content-Disposition: attachment;

filename="winmail.dat"

(This one comes in as an e-mail attachment and cannot be accepted as a

calendar item on the BB)

Work:

Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;

name="winmail.dat"

Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary

(This one works perfectly on the BB)

Thanks again, for any assistance...
