I can’t read ics files

I keep getting attachments with a .ics at the end of them. What are they and should I be worried?

An .ics attachment is an iCalendar file. Somebody is probably trying to invite you to an event so you don’t need to be worried about them.

If you are running Outlook Express or a version of Outlook older than 2ooo (Outlook 200o needsĀ service pack 3 to read them properly) then you won’t be able to read them.

Should you want to enter these into a calendar you’ll have to look at another program. Google’s online calendar is one that handles iCal files without a problem.
