I understand that MS doesn't necessary follow standards everywhere, but it would be nice if users could import ical entries into Outlook.

Attached patch adds two lines in the ical entry - METHOD and DSTAMP. Applying the patch lets import calendar entries into MS Outlook.

I've tried this out and with the patch added to the latest event module code, events can be exported into Outlook.

Ooh, I like the sound of this patch. If it works, please can we merge it into HEAD?

I agree - it'd be great to have this in version 5 of the module too.

When the ical file is opened with Outlook, for some reason it only wants to import the first event. However, when it is saved to disk and manually imported (file-import) it works.

Is this normal behavior?

Same problem here.
But I think it is related to Outlook more than to this module.
