Problem opening ICS files from Yahoo Mail

Hello,
We are sending ICS mails so our users so that they can accept/decline directly from their mail clients. This functionality is similar to that of in Google calendar.
Our functionality works with gMail, Outlook, iCal and such where the users are able to accept/decline meetings directly by clicking on the mail.

However the same code is not working with Yahoo Mail. We believe that there is some header in the mail that is missing.
Could anyone let us know why this is so with Yahoo mail? Should we do something special so that the inline attachment is not script protected by Yahoo?

If you can give us the right pointers it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ram Sundararajan

    Yahoo! Mail does not currently support dealing with .ics attachments inline, but we might support this eventually.

  • for a company like Yahoo NOT supporting ICS files for&nbsp;calendar&nbsp;meeting is&nbsp;pathetic,&nbsp;especially&nbsp;since it is 2012. wake up Yahoo.

    One more notch to go full gmail for me... I'm guessing it won't take much more now... The only thing keeping me at yahoo is the multi-tab function, that allows opening multiple messages/search results/etc..

  • If Yahoo doesnt address this we will be dropping out business accounts.  It is retarded to get meeting notices from customers that we cant see or open.

  • It is quite frustrating that yahoo does not support .ics file yet. I am also thinking of switching to another mail platform.
