I have email through Google Apps that I access from my iPhone via the web. I can view all emails and do everything I need to do except view invites sent from others using Outlook. I see the message and who it was sent to, but none of the details about the actual time and place. I can't accept or reject the invite so it never gets added to my web calendar. Even if I look at my email using the "Desktop" link, it doesn't show the details of the invite. If I look at it from my laptop, I see the details and can accept the invite and have it show on my calendar.

I do not want to add this account as a mail account on my iPhone, so web access is the best. Other then not seeing the invite details, I have no other problems. Is there a way to see those details?

  • Just wondering, can you see those details due to some gmail lab addon on the desktop?

  • No, I don't have any add-ons on the desktop - I just see the full details when using a computer as opposed to the iPhone. On the iPhone, I only see who it's from and to, but not the time or location nor have the ability to accept the meeting Jun 1, 2011 at 15:41
  • When you say "via the web" I'm assuming you mean using Safari? Have you tried using Google Chrome for iOS?
