Hi All,


We have a HR Learning Management System that schedules and sends calendar invitations, it would appear that these invites are iCalendar (vcalendar) requests - formatting seems to be on the one line with not line breaks, etc etc.

Example of Calendar invite along with formatting:
Name: Testing Event Calendar invites. Description: This Text should be abolve the link https://teams.microsoft.com/meetingidhere This text sould be below the meeting link Type: Event Languages: English (GB) Update: 25-May-2020 15:27

i.e.: Message headers below
Content-Type: text/calendar; method=REQUEST; charset=UTF-8

Was hoping on looking on ways to have formatting corrected in transit, any ideas on ways I can get these working?

Thanks</HEAD></HTML>
