Hi Niko,

Thanks for quick response.
Please take a look at attachment.
I have created 1 recurrent calendar item in my calendar using MS Exchange
web interface.
After that I opened calendar folder via thunderbird IMAP account and stored
the item.
After that I, again thru web interface, invited myself to the event and
received the invitation via thunderbird pop3 account, and stored the item
with .pop suffix
Please let me know if you need me other things to try.
And thanks a lot :)
