    Default ParseException trying to import .ics

    Hello, I'm trying to import ics files, and I'm attempting a little experiment. I issued the following command to export a calendar from zimbra:

    curl > test.ics
    Then I try to re-import the calendar with this command:

    curl -u hideg:<passwd> --data-binary ./test.ics
    as shown on the Wiki's User Migration page.

    When I do this, I get the following exception:

    javax.servlet.ServletException: parse error: Caught ParseException parsing calendar: Expected [BEGIN], read [./test.ics] at line 1

    It seems as though zimbra can't even import its own exported calendars.

    Has anybody encountered this error? Any ideas how to avoid this problem?
    Is this a known bug? etc.

    I think you need a leading @ on your filename.
    If you start the data with the letter @, the rest should be a file name to read the data from, or - if you want curl to read the data from stdin. The contents of the file must already be url-encoded. Multiple files can also be specified. Posting data from a file named 'foobar' would thus be done with --data @foobar".

    I glossed right over the @ character on the Wiki page.
    Sometimes user errors are the easy ones to fix.

    Thanks for the help.
