.ics invitations

Post by jbernad »

Dear Madam or Sir,

we are evaluating EssentialPIM as replacement for Mozilla Thunderbird. So far all features we need are fullfilled by your software except for ics invitations. We regularlly get mail invitations to meetings containing an ics file to add the invitation to the calender. In such a case Thunderbird displayed a button to add the invitation to the calender and send a confirmation to the sender automatically. This appears not to be the case with EssentialPIM. Double clicking on the ics attachement did not help either: my windows system just reported "no programm available to open this kind of files" Could you please help?

glad to hear that EPIM corresponds to most of your needs.
When meeting invitation arrives to EPIM from Thunder, you can insert it into EPIM's calendar (by double-clicking on ics file). You can not, however, send an auto-reply accepting or rejecting the invitation.
Regarding the message that you get when double-clicking on ics file- normally this should not be happening. Please re-install EPIM and that should associate ics files with EPIM so that it's able to open them.
