I am experiencing an issue while trying to save an .ics file, from an Exchange Server 2003 that has been sent from an external mail server. There is no problem on receiving these files from the same Exchange Server 2003 but the issue occurs only with mails sent from other servers. While trying to save the .ics file attachments sent from external servers, the file is shown as .msg type Untitled Attachment. However, the sender is able to access the mail through OWA and download as well as save the attachment without any problem. How do I solve this issue on my end?
How to save an .ics file sent from a different server
You should check the settings for the message sending options, maybe they do not allow for the messages to be sent to external servers in the .ics file format, and thus they are automatically being converted to the .msg format so as to be delivered to the destination.
It may be possible that the person who is sending the messages to you from the external exchange server is sending the messages with the .msg format, and therefore you will need to talk to him to send them in the .ics file format in case you are having opening them on your side
Hope this helps.
