The ics file doesn't pass the iCalendar validator: http://severinghaus.org/projects/icv/?url=https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=368067

Evolution v2.240.0 didn't have any issue viewing the e-mail and importing the invite. 

Can anyone suggest a workaround ? Can I do anything with Thunderbird ?

Thanks

Perhaps this is in fact a Thunderbird message parsing issue, rather than anything to do with Lightning? 

We also have Lotus Notes, and have found what appears to be the same issue, with Thunderbird 2 & 3 and Lightning 0.9pre & 1.0pre (beta 2).

Currently when (signed) invitations from Lotus Notes are included in a mailbox, Thunderbird 3 beta 2 is listing them as having a non-trivial size (~35KB) but not attachments. Opening the mail with Lightning disabled shows no body. Viewing the message source however reveals many mime parts (including no less than three iCalendar sections). With Lightning enabled, the same thing occurs - Lightning does not seem to even be invoked for these mails. (This may also be the case for unsigned invitations - I could not test that today)

Around 9 months ago there was no problem parsing invitation emails from Lotus Notes. I was regularly receiving Notes invitations in Thunderbird 2/Lightning 0.9pre. We did not upgrade Notes - but Thunderbird of course frequently receives updates. Unfortunately I stopped using Lighting in recent months, so did not notice when the ability to parse invitation from Notes actually occurred.

I searched for old (proven) invitation messages in vain. Of course, Lighting rightly deletes these mails once they have been processed. Furthermore, they break the download of imap on windows mobile 5&6 - so I delete them aggressively ;-)

Attached is a message that Thunderbird appears to fail to parse.

Message source for event invitation mail from Notes - not parsed by Thunderbird 3

Comment 8

I just test this with two identical invitations - one signed, and one unsigned. The problem only occurs with the signed invitation.

Generally, Thunderbird has no problem with parsing signed S/MIME mails. But if the mail is an ITIP/IMIP mail, Thunderbird cannot parse it when it is signed.
This sounds like a Thunderbird problem. Mark, any thoughts about this?

Andys issue might be related to Bug 431545. Someone should test if email invitations with two or more ics attachments work at all.
IMO different bug -- comment #8 states that the unsigned mail works whereas the signed does not.
FYI: In general multipart iMIP works well, e.g. like google calendar sends out.
