It seems impossible to have ical read ics invites from non exchange emails accounts.

Each time I try to open an ics file sent to my gmail account to have it published to my exchange calendar I have a message like that in the system logs :

Couldn't find an enabled CalDAV account, or a local calendar. Not processing message: [CaliTIPMessage <0x15e3ff30> { REQUEST D9218C92-788D-4AA2-8A33-2070769EE28B 1 20110610T161625Z "test event"}]

I have no local calendars in iCal nor email based one.

My point is I don't want to import any events in any other calendars than my exchange one.


Did anyone ever experienced this problem before ?

Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    Same here, I was using Davmail to our exchange 2003 back-end before but we upgraded to 2010 and Davmail stopped working properly so I tried the native exchange support in iCal and it worked... except I can't add events to the calendar through .ics files from mail... this is very basic functionality, it's beyond silly that it doesn't seem to be supported.


    Same error message:

    23/06/12 5:59:56 PMiCal[34535]Couldn't find an enabled CalDAV account, or a local calendar. Not processing message: [CaliTIPMessage <0x1c997d0> { REQUEST 9C637EE9-FB8F-45A3-B0DE-5A5C1CC0DB53 0 20120622T065200Z "Mentoring - Catch-up"}]


    Apple any suggestions?


    Proper calendaring support is really the missing feature for me on OSX.

    Interestingly, saving the .ics file and then going in iCal to Files => Import makes it possible to get it on the exchange calendar but you lose the ability to accept it or see who was invited and so on. Better than nothing I guess, but still lacking functionality.

    For this to still be an issue is unbelievable. I hate to have to swtich to Outlook but it doesn't looke like this is going to be fixed any time soon.
