Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2011 5:49 AM (in response to ryanowich)*Is there a way to:*
1. store the calenders on the server via iCal Server
2. but not use iCal Servers notification service
and instead force the desktop iCal to send emails everytime (like before iCal Server)
What happens if I remove the Push Notifications settings?
Or if I disable Email invitations?Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), OS X Snow Leopard Server 10.6.5
Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2011 5:51 AM (in response to ryanowich)How do I read the log?
What is supposed to show when inviting someone to an event, updating and event or replying to an invitation?
Some actions may be missing in the log. But which actions should I look for?Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), OS X Snow Leopard Server 10.6.5
Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2011 11:29 AM (in response to ryanowich)The way this works is:
The client (iCal) sends an email address, say firstname.lastname@example.org.
iCal Server then checks to see if that email address corresponds to a known user in the directory.
If it can find email@example.com in OD, then it will deliver a CalDAV message to that user. (Exception: if there are two different user records with the same email address, it doesn't know which one to use, so this counts as not finding it.)
If it can't identify a user record with that email address, it sends an iMIP invitation via email.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 5, 2011 10:59 AM (in response to wsanchez)So that means that if I enter a firstname.lastname@example.org in my info in Workgroup Manager, the server will try to send a CalDAV message to the gmail.com account when people invite me to an event in iCal.
Will that work?Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5), OS X Snow Leopard Server
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2011 5:04 PM (in response to wsanchez)I'm a few steps further towards a working iCal server now. Your answer clarified a lot.
User on iCal server:
Invitations are sent via email@example.com. Both to invitees on same email domain and to external invitees.
When I (user on iCal server) am invited by someone not on our iCal server, I get the invitation via Mail.app and iCal local reads it. And I'm able to reply, and my reply status updates in my local iCal. No problems so far.
Mail.app (not iCal server) then sends a reply. And the inviter receives the reply as an email which is an .ics file attached. But the .ics is not understood by users not on iCal server.
The format looks like this:
I looks like the inviters iCal is not able to translate urn:uuid:38BCCE7F-D85C-4C17-872E-5C3CFFFB4838 to anything usable. And therefore sees it as if an unknow user has replied to the invitation. Apparently neither Mozilla Lightning og iCal local looks at EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org";
Inviting and replying to and from users on iCal server works fine.
Do I have to map the urn:uuid to the email somehow? Where? Or somehow allow external inviters to look to our server for urn:uuid to email translation?
Or can I manually change a config file to send an .ics with my email insted my urn:uuid? Like this:
