User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
I just installed Thunderbird and I've got most of the stuff I want working. The only problem is people who send calendar invitations.
I know that there is no steadfast calendar integration at this time but I would still like to be able to save the text/calendar attachments to file and then import into Calendar/Sunbird. The problem is that the message display shows no attachments. When I view the message source, I can see two MIME sections, text/plain and text/calendar but I just get the text in the display, no attachments. I tried adding some stuff to the mimeTypes.rdf file but it didn't seem to help.
Is mimTypes the correct path or is this just a current issue? I've looked at the code but I'm not that familiar with it.
Here is the relavant data from the message with cut portions noted:
This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
<calendar stuff here>
I know this is no help to you, but when I have an attached .ics file in an e-mail, Thunderbird displays it as an attached file in the normal way. I changed the headers to look like your example, but this did not break it.
I can save the file, then import it into my calendar.
If I try to open the file directly from the e-mail when the Calendar extension is not already open, it opens and then hangs. If Calendar is already open, it opens the file as a new calendar.
My mimeTypes.rdf does not mention calendar.
Well it turns out that its the multipart/alternative bit that is messing it up. It selects the text/plain as the section it wishes to display. If I change that to multipart/mixed I get all the text in the message display as well as the ability to open/saveAs the ics attachment as a file.
Now to figure out how to get Thunderbird to pick the text/calendar part over the text/plain part.
I had a similar problem.
I added a Content Type value in the windows xp registry to associate it with the text/calendar type and now everything works well.
I found the solution at:
Hope it helps.
Er, this topic was from 2005. I really doubt that the OP is watching it any more. Please look at the dates the next time you offer help. Locking this ancient topic.
