I receive a couple of invitations to meetings from Microsoft Exchange users a week in my mailbox. Is there a package with some mode I can install to make these attachments human readable or enhance mu4e-view to display at least the event start/end and location?

I don't need to import these things into some calendar like icalendar.el does. I just want to view them.

  • While mainly a library Noah Friedman's vcard.el has a pretty-printer, vcard-pretty-print.

  • Nope, vcard.el can't parse vcalendar files. The best solution I currently have is setting up mailcap/mime/xdg (or whatever I did way back when) to open the file in emacs and running icalendar-import-buffer in it.

  • Bummer. In that case, I'd file a feature request against mu4e.

I've found a better way then running icalendar-import-buffer. I am now using mu4e-view-import-attachment-diary instead (didn't notice this before..). Good enough for now.
