Our engineers are analyzing this problem currently at the request of one of our customers. At first glance it appears to be only on 2007. MS has little motivation to fix this because it only impacts lotus notes. We may be contracted to develop a fix for this. Let me know if you would be interested in the fix if we develop it.

Stay tuned.

Error "not supported calendar message.ics" on Lotus Notes appointm

04-Nov-08

When getting changes of recuring appointments from a Lotus Notes 7

environment of one of our customers over internet (SMTP no Exchange Lotus

Notes connector), the appointment can't be displayed in OWA 2007 and Outlook

2003/2007. The message contains three attachments:

not supported calendar message.ics

ATT00001.htm

c153016.ics

When trying to open the ics Files, Outlook states the format of the file is

incorrect.

Customer Environment: Notes 7 Server with Notes 7.02 / 6.54 Clients

Our Environment: Exchange 2007 SP1 with OWA, Outlook 2003 / 2007 Clients

Any ideas?

Frank,

We are getting the same thing. Odd - I've never seen this before. Also,

the end user who receives this meeting request is told he cannot accept the

message because he is the meeting organizer(?). I don't know if that will

help anyone troubleshoot this issue, but any help is greatly appreciated.

P.S. We have the same environment(s) as Frank described below.

Odd - Microsoft, got any response? I can send screenshots of both 2003 and

2007.

From what MS had told us, if the message passes through an Exchange 2003

server anywhere along the way, the ICS messages will be FUBR'd. It has to

pass through only Exchange 2007 and then it will be good. I have not yet

been able to verify this through individual testing, but hope to test it

within the next couple weeks.

We do not use Exchange 2003 - this would have come directly from Lotus Notes

to Exchange 2007 SP1.

Odd.

Mark, P.S. I notice that if you open the ics file in notepad then delete the

entry that starts with RDATE;VALUE=PERIOD, then it works in Outlook 2007. I

don't see why it's a problem for Outlook 2007, but not Outlook 2003.

Ah. That does not bode well for our migration to 2k7 since MS guaranteed it

results.

Hopefully Ms will respond to this post and clarify...

We too are getting the same error. Examination of the .ICS files with "ABC

Amber iCalendar Converter" reveals that they do contain valid iCalendar data

so Notes does appear to be creating the .ICS files correctly. It would

appear to be a bug within either Outlook 2007 or Exchange 2007.

THis is very anoying. All "calendar communication" involving recurring

meetings we must handle manually. We are really looking forward to get this

fixed.

Hi Gurus,

In our regular business activity we get an email calender '.vcs' attachment , using it we set up our meetings or handle training activities from SAP backend.

Recently we rolled up from Microsoft Outlook 2003 to Microsoft Outlook 2007. None of our vCalendar attachments work since we have moved to Outlook 2007. When we try to open the .VCS attachment, we receive an error message stating that "message.vcs is not a valid Internet calendar file".

we even tried using .ICS attachment but same error pops up !

Request to suggest any solution please.

Any work around !!

Request to help , it would be greatly appreciated !!
