Description Jan Kundrát 2014-04-02 08:35:41 UTC
Seems that at least one Exchange instance in the world sends meeting invitation like this:

* multipart/alternative
  + text/plain
  + text/html
  + textcalendar

This is of course wrong because the RFC clearly states that a multipart/alternative has parts which should be equal. A machine-readable meeting invitation is a very different beast from a free text input.

The GUI should probably make it clearer that an actual meeting invitation (with all those boring details like when it starts, which was of course absent from the free-form text) is attached. Oh well. Exchange, so nice to meet you.
