Hi, I added an Exchange (Office365) account and sync works quite nicely, Unfortunately, calendar invitations cannot be opened or accepted/declined in the E-mail app. Additionally, in calendar new appointments can be added but it is not possible to send invitations to other people. Is there some kind of work around for this or is this a known restriction in sailfish OS? Thank you for your help C.

This is a known limitation of the SFOS email client. The stock mail and calendar clients interoperate minimally, and they especially lack collaboration features like the ones you mention. Stock clients on other mobile OSes usually only implement some of these features, too, and do this in a clumsy fashion. (Windows Mobile being an exception here.)

Thank you. I think my search parameters have not been the best ones. Unfortunately, the thread is quite old - so it seems that this is not on the top of Jolla's To-Do list...

Yes and search within tjc is a matter of its own :)

Not really an answer still it might help: The web version of office365 works well and can be used to overcome the SFOS mail shortcomings.

The problem of this workaround: it is annoyingly slow.
