Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2010 9:42 AM (in response to RichardFosse)Have you found a fix for this yet? I'm having similar problems - inconsistent mail and iCal syncing. Both programs tell me I'm off-line with Exchange but I'm not.Mac Pro Early 2008, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2010 8:51 PM (in response to RichardFosse)I noticed my Exchange calendar on iCal was not updating. Some of the original events were showing, but none of the new ones. I noticed this calendar was not online. When I tried to change the status, it remained offline. It appears this is the reason why it is not updating.
Like RichardFosse, this calendar was automatically created by Mail.IMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 13, 2010 7:58 AM (in response to RichardFosse)I was having a problem with iCal not refreshing the calendar with new events from the corporate Exchange server. I wasn't having the problem with online-offline described earlier. However, perhaps the remedy is the same.
What I did: I deleted the Exchange account in iCal and re-created it. It is now showing events that it wasn't showing before and appears to be functioning normally. Unless there is something I don't know, it's safe to delete and re-create the calendar since all the information is stored on the Exchange server.
Give it a try and see if this remedies your problem.
I don't know what triggers the problem. I'm speculating that in my case it might be due to a changed password, since I have to change my Exchange password every 90 days. I suspect there is a corruption problem going on between Mail and iCal when the Exchange password is updated. And, I did try updating the password in iCal directly, but it didn't help. The only thing that did was to delete and re-create the calendar.
Hope this helps.Mac OS X (10.6.5), iCal v4.0.4
