Google calendar event panel in e-mail shows incorrect date and time


E-mails pertaining to a Google Calendar invite show a panel at the top of the e-mail with information about the event, similar to that shown in the gmail web app. However when the meeting is recurring this panel always shows the date and time of the first occurrence, not the instance that is the subject of the e-mail.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Outside of Mailspring (but using a gmail account that has been added to Mailspring)

  1. Create a recurring event, invite someone (or another account you own) to it
  2. Have the invited person decline one instance of the meeting (not the first one)

In Mailspring, open the email you received as a result of the meeting being declined. Observe that the subject line has the date of the meeting that was declined, but the e-mail panel has the date of the first meeting in the series.

Expected Behavior

E-mail panel should show date and time of the specific instance that was declined.



  • OS and Version: macOS 13.1
