    I am moving from iPad to Surface Pro 2. I like the native SurfacePro 2 mail client - (Outlook is too "heavy").

    I am using Outlook on my home PC, and want to pass calendar invitations to the Mail client on the Surface Pro 2. Setting up my personal mail account (imap), I do not get the option to sync calendars. However, I think I could effectively get the calendar meeting details via the blahblah.ics attachment that comes via email attachment.

    Question for the forum:
    Can I get the Mail Client to present an attachment as a meeting request (blahblah.ics) filename? Right now, it only comes though as a blahblah.ext file in the Mail inbox. (GMAIL does preserve the .ics extension.)

    If I can receive it as a .ics file, than, presumably I could associate the Calendar application with that extension.

    Any thoughts, anyone?
