Error description

  • Cannot import *.ics file when file name contains non ASCII

    The following error message comes up:.
    
    'Notes cannot process your file. This URL is not associated with
    a valid
    iCalendar feed'
    
    Similar to SPR # MBLT9MVDVK, SPR # IFAY9U5EWQ, SPR # BKAN9WWSFX.

    Comment from affected customer:
    
    I hope that you understand that we cannot say to all of our
    users, "oh it's
    normal, it's just a bug, please use the following
    workaround"...
    For the users the product should work and that's all. It's also
    a matter of
    keeping IBM Notes a credible product compared to the
    competitors.
