Steps to reproduce:


Using Redhat's corporate email system, Zimbra (via calDAV).

1.  Use a client outside of thunderbird to send an invite to myself (NOT lightning).  For this example, i used the Redhat corporate Zimbra web interface.  Be sure to set a reminder on this invite, i used 5 minutes
2.  Now goto your Thunderbird client and Accept the invite.  When it asks to send the invite confirmation, be sure to *not* check 'Support Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002/XP'.
3.  Now look on your lightning calendar, the invite is saved as expected, however, the reminder is stripped from the event.

4.  Now do steps 1 and 2 again, this time be sure to check the 'Support Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002/XP' box when you accept the meeting.  The event is added to the calendar and the reminder of 5 minutes is retained.

Obviously, this behavior is less than ideal.

# rpm -qa |grep thunder

Actual results:

Invite was stripped when saving without the 'Support Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002/XP' box checked.

Expected results:

The reminder should have be retains, regardless.

Regarding my previous statement.  I've had two instances that occurred today where i did indeed check the 'Support Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2002/XP' box and the reminders STILL got stripped from the event.  Looks like this is a broader bug than anticipated.

I just confirmed, it doesnt matter if i check the aforementioned box or not.  This issue is sporadic.  I believe if the invite originates from the Zimbra web client the reminder gets stripped when the event is written to the calendar (via caldav).
