I migrated my MobileMe account to iCloud and calendar invitations are not working. When I create a calendar event and select an invitee an email is not sent to the invitee. I have tried sending invites from iCal on my MacBook Air, iPhone, and iCloud.com with no success. I tested by creating a new iCloud account using a different Apple ID and still no luck. Anyone else having this problem?

    Still not working for me.  I have my iCloud email turned off, but even when it was on it didn't work.

    Same here; invites not working here after MobileMe to iCloud migration, this was working fine in MobileMe...

    Mine appears to be working now, though they're showing from an address not associated with my Apple ID...but a legit address.  Weirdness...

    Try going into iCal on your Mac and resending the invitations to the other iCloud (formerly MobileMe) users.  Because people migrate at different times, the calendar sharing didn't make the transition and won't work between MM and iCloud. Once I resent sharing invitations and my wife and daughter responded from their iCals on Lion machines (and after migrating to iCloud), then all was good.

    Solved it.

     

    Here's what I did.

     

    - Settings

    - Mail, Contacts, Calandars

    - On this page my default calandar was set to the local iphone calander. Changed it to iCloud calander and that was the solution

    This doesn't work for me. My wife is on Snow Leopard and Mobile Me. I'm on Lion and iCloud. She sends me invitations often. They used to work but don't any longer.

     

    Why can't Apple get this right? They claim that Mobile Me was a failure, but at least it worked. iCloud doesn't.

     

    And don't tell me that she needs to update to Lion in order for invitations to work. I shouldn't have to wait for everyone else in the world upgrades to Lion and iCloud in order to receive calender invitations from them.

     

    This is pretty basic, Apple. Get it right!

    Same issue with invites sent to my apple id email.  Has anyone resolved this?

    Invites are working for me now. I got a flood of them after my intial post meaning the system must have been backlogged the first few days after iCloud went live and eventually sent the invites.

     

    I did notice that if you are testing the invites by sending them to yourself an invite will not be sent. In other words if your appleID is joeblow@me.com and you send a calender invite to joeblow@me.com iCloud recognizes this as your own address and will not send an invite. Trying sending an invite to a different email address to test if it is working.

    I'm still not getting invites sent from an iCloud calendar sent to my apple id email.  I have an Exchange calendar but I use my exchange email as my apple id.  For some reason I'm not fetting invites.  I read Google calendar users are having the same issue with invites not being received.

     

    Has anyone resolved this????

    I noticed that only 2 of my friends are receiving my iCloud invites and they both have one thing in common that differs from those who cannot receive them — they haven't changed the default name (description) of their iCloud accounts on their devices, i.e. they are still called "iCloud", whereas the rest of us have changed the account name to our own names;

     

    settings/mail, contacts, calendars/accounts [select account]/account/description

    I figured out the problem.

    icloud uses the apple id as the sender email address. But this is not allowed on many mail servers. Because if the target mail server receives a icloud invitation, they ask the mail server from sender email address, if the server who sends this email is allowed to do that. This will be done by the SPF record.

     

    as an example: your apple id is myappleid@gmx.net, now you invite one person: oneperson@hisdomain.com

     

    no the email invitation will be sent from the icloud server (badger1302.apple.com) but the sender address is myappleid@gmx.net. now on the target side, the mail server hisdomain.com asks gmx.net, if mail server badger1302.apple.com is allowed to send email with sender address myappleid@gmx.net. But gmx.net doesn allow that. So most target mail server then decides to drop such emails. if email server ignore this SPF record, then the email will be acceppted.

     

    So to bring this running, it should be possible to configure, which email should be used to send such email invitations (good would be a @me.com address), but currently the apple id will be used and there no @me.com is allowed.

     

    an other solution is to use a apple id where you have control of the SPF record (if you have your own domain)

     

    I hope that helps
