Not  specifically  Outlook,  but it would nice if The Bat actually lets
you  choose a specific application for specific file types. Using file
associations  is  a  problem  in  Windows 10 because they keep getting
reverted  to  "Windows  defaults".  I  notice it  most  with  PDFs when
suddenly Edge starts instead of the program I actually specified.

My  firewall  traps  Outlook, but every so often, that tries to start.
Strangely  setting The  Bat  as  my  default email client does NOT get
reset.

I use my phone email client to handle .ics files, as it displays them
in an easy to read format, and adds them to my Google calendar,
handling the invite response effectively too. It would be good it TB!
could do something similar (if just the display of the invite in a
readable format).

 Maurice,

 yes,  I  realise  what they are and squinting long enough can get the
 relevant  information  out of the gibberish being served but I agree,
 ideally  TB  should  make  them  readable  in  an  easy txt format. I
 understand that the program does not have a calendar function and
 I am fine with that but most of my partners do use outlook and
 assume everyone else is too.

These are called iCalendar files, normally saved in .ics files and usually they 
should look like an attachment of this type. The format is similar to vCard 
files, except that they contain calendar items instead of address book items.

Maybe they can come up with a viewer for these that displays the most important 
information like subject, description, localised date and time, attendees 
(people invited) and whether it is a recurring appointment, like this one. You 
can tell by the RRULE lines which indicate a yearly recurrence on the first 
Sunday of april and oktober.

Outlook Calendar emails

2018-07-05 Thread Tom

Hello Everyone,

sometimes  contacts  are  sending  me  emails  with  outlook  calendar
entries.  I  am  not sure what they are called but they get completely
mangled in TB and are hard to read.

I  don't  need  any function to add these to a calendar or similar but
just  would  like  to  be able to read the content of the email easily
without all the added "background info. Is
there anything I can do about this?
