Thumbs down Sending .iCal attachments to a Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Microsoft Access database that sends out various reports and data to our clients. However, when I send an email with an iCal attachment to my Blackberry (8900), it loose the body of the email and see the following message:

applictaion/X -
rimdevicecalendar

All other attachment types that I send through work fine.

Does anyone know a way around this. They don't need to open the attachment from the Blackberry - (that will be done from their office PC), but I need them to see the text body.

That's a pain. The thing that compunds this issue is the fact that it strips out the body of the email. If it didn't it wouldn't be an issue. The strange thing is, that it is only an iCal attachment that causes this.
