.ics issue, double appointments
« on: November 03, 2016, 12:38:09 pm »

When I open an .ics meeting invite in aqua-mail it is booked twice in my Google calenda.  Since I have an agenda widget on my homesscreen I don't want it cluttered by duplicates so I delete one of the two appointments. Sometimes my meeting host receive a declination from me when I delete the duplicate. I still haven't learned which one to delete safely.

Maybe this glitch doesn't derive from aqua-mail. Anyhow I'll be thankful for tips.

Maybe the duplicate is added by "something else"?

For example, for a Gmail account, there is a setting (in web mail) to automatically add any incoming appointments, it is enabled by default, and to my knowledge, works independently of any mail app (entirely on Google's side).

What sort of mail account are you seeing this in? Gmail, something else, such as your corporate account?

Things I'd check:

1 - Calendar app, when you see duplicates, there is a way to see (for each, if you open them individually), what "account" on the phone they're under.

2 - Phone settings -> accounts. Are there any accounts that could be syncing your appointments? For Gmail, see above, but maybe a corporate account set up in another app (mail, calendar, sometimes those can connect directly to your account's servers)?

Outlook mail app has a separate calendar, so sorts ICS very lovely.  But that's not the answer in current situation :)
Haven't you choosed another app to handle invitations?

I have a similar issue with Android/Galaxy S7: when I receive an Outlook .ics calendar item I can't accept / decline the appointment (which would automatically send it back to the sender) ...
