Description Jonathan Blandford 2009-02-17 21:10:18 EST
The attached ICS doesn't seem to be parsed correctly.  It just offers to save it to disk.
Comment 1 Milan Crha 2009-02-18 05:42:18 EST
Can you attach the file, please? ;)
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2009-02-18 06:04:32 EST
It's here: http://www.gnome.org/~jrb/files/invite.ics

I just tried to import this file to evolution 2.24.3 and it offers me an iCalendar file type, but, because you are talking about Save as, I believe you are doing quite different thing, probably part of some message?

I would suggest two things:
a) check whether itip-formatter plugin is turned on in Edit->Plugins (event if
   it isn't it should show some sort of invitations), and also look in which
   state is your prefer-plain plugin, as well as in Edit->Plugins, then also
   in Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences, tab HTML Mails

b) is it possible to upload here that mail message?

Oh, thought it had attached when I submitted it.  Sorry.

It is attached to a message I received, and I have attached the full message.  The itip-formatter plugin is turned on.  I have "Show HTML if available" set as well.

evolution-2.24.3-1.fc10 doesn't contain patch from the upstream bug [1], whereas evolution-2.24.4-1.fc10 does. You can disable prefer plain plugin (or just move it to any other option than "Show HTML") and it'll start work.
