Kopano 8.7.5 to External Outlook - incorrect calendar entries received
Following this topic:
I was finally able to narrow down the behaviour.
The problem occurs when I send out a calendar invite from Kopano 8.7.5 with NO location.
The destination external bank (I believe microsoft exchange) receives the calendar invite but is unable to represent it as a calendar invite, but displays it as text.
If instead I send out a calendar invite with a locatin attached, then it’s all fine.
I have never observed this behaviour in 8.6
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you would like any other information to be able to assist.
I was wondering if anyone had the chance of looking at this.
I have updated the database to the latest UTF format.
I then sent a meeting invite from Kopano (personal use) and the bank where I work (my real paid job).
Without a location.
The bank’s Outlook does not recognise the meeting invite if a location is not specified.
You just get this in outlook

I was wondering if anyone else other than me has experienced such issue.
I have tested again but the issue remains.
Am I the only one that suffers from this issue?
The bank where I work is a major UK one…
And I can’t send myself a meeting invite from Kopano to my place of work as the calendar entries are wrong.
This could apply to anyone else using Kopano to send meeting invites to such organisations…
I tried in all possible ways and this is still a problem.
If any emails get to the external bank (I can’t divulge the name on here but I can in private) the meeting invites in Outlook do not get received properly.
Surely this is a problem for Kopano? I.e. there may be other organisations with this setup…
