    Most issues I can solve with a search but not this time:)
    When I create an event on my HTC Incredible phone, I can select "Share" and send to my home computer and open in Outlook. The file shows up as a .vcs file and easliy imports into my outlook calendar. The problem is when I try the opposite. I create an event on my home computer, send to my phone via email, the file shows up as a .dat file. Even if I rename the file via Astro, it will not import into the phone calendar...any ideas?

    This is Outlook using it's own format for attachments. seems there is a setting in there to use a normal format that all mail clients can understand. Thunderbird has problems w/Outlook attachments also.

    Hi,

    have you tries the app CalendarSync? The app can import calendar informations from various sources and it also supports .vcs calendar files. I'm using it to import appointments from my collects which are sent to my by mail. It really works flawless. The app also provides a bunch of additional features.
