Open a VCalendar file on the fly

I have stored a vCalendar (v2.0) file in the database and want to open the vCalendar file with Outlook using a link from my JSP page which calls a servlet.

When clicking on the link on my local host ( it works fine and Outlook opens the file and prompts the user for an event reply.

But when clicking on the same link when the application is running on the webserver (http://www.myDomain.com/myApp) it doesn�t work. Then Outlook comes up with an popup-message: "The vCalendar-file can�t be imported".

Is that an Outlook security issue or is it a problem in my code, i.e. the header information or something else?

(I am sure that the file (invitation.ics) works as this file is also sent with an e-mail. And after downloading it I can import it in Outlook.)
