I've got a MacOS X Server running 10.6.6.

Everythings works fine with iCal except one thing.

When I send iCal invit. to the outside world, the reply-to that my mail program is getting is just a junk of numbers and letters like :

Is there a way to get rid of this ?

Thanks for help
Xserve Intel, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    What server software are you using - 10.5.X, or 10.6.X? Looks like you iCal server is not configured.

    Okay, so after spending several hours with Apple tech support I was able to resolve my problem, hope this helps. The user had manually synced their Address Book contacts with their iPhone and a Google contacts list. Both of these syncs as well as manually adding new contacts into the Address Book on their iMac caused the Address Book to get completely scrambled. The user had cards with no title, but as many as five (unrelated) email addresses assigned to the card. This same Address Book contained multiple address cards like this, yet each one was slightly different. The user also had cards with titles containing special characters (&;?-_/   etc.), the quick answer for me was, the user had o go through their Address Book on their iPhone and their iMac and completely descramble the bad data. Then before a fresh sync they had to turnoff sync with Google contacts within iTunes. Once the bad data was removed the invitee field with iCal immediately started to perform as expected without fail. What a relief to have this issue resolved.
