    Calendar: Users can now create calendar events directly from text/calendar based messages.
    What does this mean? Can I add an calendar event by sending an e-mail to my e-mail account?

    • Mailfence Team says:


      Inbound emails with calendar event (attachment) file can now be added directly to your calendar.

      Other then that, you can always invite anyone to your Mailfence calendar event by adding participants to it.

      Kind regards,
