Invitation widget not showing

I received an invitation to a meeting (from Saleforce CRM).

It doesn't show the acceptance widget.virgin invite.jpg

The same email displays correctly in Gmail and Outlook.

Re: Invitation widget not showing

IMHO providing such functionality in webmail would be pointless because it lacks any sort of calendaring functionality.

AFAIK anything shown beyond the attached calendar event is due to additional processing by the email client, for instance in Thunderbird with integrated calendaring disable the message pane showed:
2019-07-10.jpeg

whereas with it enabled the message pane showed:
2019-07-10.jpeg

Re: Invitation widget not showing

So it would seem that the standard Virginmedia email viewer disables the message pane, suggesting I should view the email in another mail system. I did try on my phone in the mail app but will explore other routes.

As regards providing that functionality, it doesn't necessarily require local calendar functionality but does require a means of answering the invitation.

Many thanks for your reply and insight.
