My Calendar server is up and working fine *untill one tries to invite someone who isn't part of out server directory, aka an email invitee.*

The CalDAV server sends the invite fine (the person receives an pretty HTML email with a .ics attached)
The person can Accepted or Decline and a reply email is sent.
The Mail server receives that email and puts it in "Calendar Server Mail"

BUT the person who made the event doesn't get the little green tick or red cross. so they have no way of telling if one has Accepted or Decline the event.

is any one eles having this problem?

MacBook Pro 5,3, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    I've been playing around with the server a few days now trying to work out the kinks for my company, so I have a slight idea of how it works.

    Sounds to me like the ical server isn't getting the response email, but the email server is. You may check your settings and make sure the imap/pop part of the settings in Server Admin has the correct values. login/pass, etc.

    Hi thanks for the reply!

    The calendar server has no problem of sending emails? the username & password are the default.
    username: com.apple.calendarserver
    password: unknown

    Calendar Settings:
    https://files.me.com/jonohayes/sr6057

    do you experience the same problem as me on your server?

    Not exactly the same issue on mine, but mine didn't have any of the "default" mail account information filled in at all, probably because it was an upgrade from 10.5 server. I had to use keychain access to recover the password. You might look in there, in the system keychain, to verify you have the correct password in there. I had used http://www.coresolutiongroup.com/wordpress/?p=27 to point me in the right direction.

    I had to edit postfix's main.conf file also, I put a little write up on my site explaining the steps. I did it because my invitation replies were getting automatically rejected from the server. It looks like yours are going through to the server you said so I doubt that's your issue. http://www.osxadmins.com/?p=139

    Maybe you could post some of the text from the iCal server error log from Server Admin.

    Does any one else have the same problem? Because I have two servers, both with the same problem. & I can't remembering it ever working.

    If yours does work can you please post so I can stop going insane guessing!

    UPDATE! - thanks http://www.dreness.com/ for you help

    i have made a new user on the server (username: calendarserver) and now the iCal Server can login to mail (send and receive), i can see the iCal Server delete the response emails. but it still doesn't update the event info?

    any more ideas?

    You're now at the exact same point I've been stuck at for a couple weeks. I see emails go through and it checks and deletes new mails in its inbox. But the accept/decline response never shows up in the calendar. I also never seem to find errors in the log.

    YAY im not alone!

    I'm lost for ideas as well, it must be a bug in the Calendar Server, i cant remember if it has ever worked for me in Snow Leopard.

    Same issues here. I have been dealing with it for over a year and have done a clean install with no avail. I have tried using gmail (google apps) as a mail relay but nothing seems to help. Please post a fix if you guys figure it out and I will do the same because I think I may have to hire someone to get it to work.

    I'm not sure if this is good news for you or not - but I have it working - all be it on a non production server (e.g. it could fail later when real users use it) .

    Set loggin to debug and watch for errors in error.log
