Outlook (2003-?) displays an error message if you try to open an ics-Event-Invitation-File which contains special chars (ö,ä,...) in the common name (CN=) field.
It would be a nice feature if Lightning replaces special chars in this field (ö->oe,ä->ae,...) -->calItipEmailTransport.js -> _createTempImipFile



Reproducible: Always

This rather sounds like an encoding problem (though I can't see it in the code). What version of lightning do you use?

I don't think we should falsify outgoing iMIP this way.

I tested it with the linux and windows Lighnting version 0.9.

You are right, it seems to be an encoding problem:

I only found something by searching for the german error message:

Could you please recheck whether this problem occurs on a current nightly build (1.0pre)? Thanks.
