Sending iCal attachments to a Blackberry

Posted on 2009-02-23

I have an Access database the sends out iCal attachments via emiail.  These seem to open really nicely into a couple of apps that I have tested.  However, I am trying to send an iCal appointment to my blackberry as an email attachment, but the blackberry doesn't want to open it.  

There appears to be three lines of text on the Blackberry (the [?] is a folder icon):

[?] 1 Attachment
[?] application/X-

If I click on the attachment, it comes up with the following message.

This attachment type cannot be viewed on your device!

And if I try to download it :

The attachment is empty and cannot be downloaded.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not really good news at all as I have had the same issue for some time. I assume you do not have a BES server. Without it you need: vCardmaster
Some have use the Google Calendar to sync with as well:
Good Luck,
