Calendars in PST are not readable in Outlook but its showing in other tools like Aspose PST Viewer

PST exported by Aspose.Email which also has the calendars that are not readable in Outlook but other tools like Aspose pst viewer are showing correctly

@vaibhav007

I suggest you to please try using latest Aspose.Email for .NET 20.8. In case there is an issue then please share the used sample code, source PST, generated PST and snapshot of issue incurring in MS Outlook along with Outlook version.

                    MailMessage mailMsg = new MailMessage();
                    mailMsg.AddAlternateView(appointment.RequestApointment());
                    MapiMessage mapiMsg = MapiMessage.FromMailMessage(mailMsg);

                    f_FolderInfoObj.AddMessage(mapiMsg);

We have tried to verify this case and could not reproduce this on our end. We have used the following code sample:

using (PersonalStorage pst = PersonalStorage.Create(@"test.pst", FileFormatVersion.Unicode))
{
    FolderInfo calendarFolder = pst.CreatePredefinedFolder("Calendar", StandardIpmFolder.Appointments);

    Appointment appointment = Appointment.Load(@"Appointment.ics");
    MailMessage mailMsg = new MailMessage();
    mailMsg.AddAlternateView(appointment.RequestApointment());
    MapiMessage mapiMsg = MapiMessage.FromMailMessage(mailMsg);

    calendarFolder.AddMessage(mapiMsg);
}

Can you please share the following:

  • How did you create a PST?
  • Does the result depend on a specific appointment or on all?

result does not depend on a specific appointment or on all having issue for all
following code for pst creation

 Aspose.Email.Calendar.Appointment appointment = Aspose.Email.Calendar.
                                                                    Appointment.Load(p_AppointmentObj.ICSPath);
                    Aspose.Email.MailMessage mailMsg = new Aspose.Email.MailMessage();
                    mailMsg.AddAlternateView(appointment.RequestApointment());
                    Aspose.Email.Mapi.MapiMessage mapiMsg = Aspose.Email.Mapi.MapiMessage.
                        FromMailMessage(mailMsg);


                    f_FolderInfoObj.AddMessage(mapiMsg);

any update on this issue?

@vaibhav007

Unfortunately, we still cannot reproduce the bug. Can you please send a sample appointment file that you have in the example? Also, it is important for us to know what program is used to create the original PST (Outlook or not) and also is the f_FolderInfoObj folder (in example) a calendar folder?

Following code for pst creation

  private bool CreatePST(string p_filePath, Mode p_PSTFileMode)
    {
        string METHOD_NAME = "createPST";
        bool f_IsSuccessfull = false;

        {

            if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(p_filePath))
            {
                m_objLogFile.LogError(CLASS_NAME, METHOD_NAME, " PST file path is empty while creating a file.");
                return false;
            }
            if (p_PSTFileMode == Mode.CREATE)
            {

                String tempFilepath = p_filePath;

                int count = 1;
                while (File.Exists(tempFilepath))
                {
                    tempFilepath = p_filePath.Substring(0, p_filePath.LastIndexOf('.')) + " (" + count++ + ").pst";
                }

                m_ObjPersonalStorage = PersonalStorage.Create(tempFilepath, FileFormatVersion.Unicode);   // if file estist then it gives a error.
