    How do I import a Calendar event via email from Outlook?
    I have acquired an HTC Desire (very nice) - my first Android phone - and am puzzled by importing Calendar events. I do not use googlemail - I have my own email account. I can send a calendar event from the Desire to my work Outlook calendar by sending it as a vCalendar event by email. Works fine - Outlook accepts it. But I can't do the reverse by email. I can send the Outlook appointment to the Desire, and the email arrives with an attachment, but all I can do with attachment is save it to the SD card, where it just sits inaccessibly (because you can't even see the contents of the SD card without some app which I don't have). So why can I export an event in the appropriate format via email, but not import via email? The user instructions suggest that I could import an event via an MMS message. I haven't tried that but anyway my work computer does not send MMS messages!

    Am I being dim? Is there some incredibly simple answer to this?
