Arrow how to Handle Outlook Meeting Invitations?

Please Login to Remove!

recently a number of my users have asked about the BB's ability (or lack thereof) to handle the Microsoft / Outlook meeting invitation attachments (.ics files).

We have all seen these types of files I'm sure-- when you open them in Outlook, you are given the chance to Accept, Decline, etc. and Outlook knows how to handle these types of responses and automatically generate calendar entries based on them.

The problem is, when my BB users get these on their BB, they have no way of accepting/denying them and to make it worse, they cant even see the date/time of the proposed meeting so they dont even have the option of "manually" responding to the request.

Is there some 3rd party or other solution so that the BB can properly handle these types of attachments? Surely someone else must have a solution for this!
