Hi,

 

When you add an event in Apple Calendar (prev. iCal) and invite an attendee, an email with an invitation is sent. Where are these emails saved? Where can you find the template that is used to create these emails?


OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Hi,

     

    It depends on the language you have set.  The English formats are stored here:

     

    /System/Library/Frameworks/CalendarStore.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English. lproj/iTIP.strings

     

    Best wishes

    Hi John,

     

    Do you also know where the emails are saved? I don't see them in Apple Mail's Outbox or Sent Items.

    The reason I ask, is that I want to delete a bunch of old stuff from a Calendar, but do not want the invited people to receive an email. So if I cut my internet connection, remove the events (and click OK to sent a notification that the event was canceled), I can remove those emails before I activate my internet connection.

     

    Best regards,

     

    Filip

    Hi Filip,

     

    What happens with invites depends on whether the calendar is local or stored on calendar server or not.  For local calendars (those under "On My Mac") the sent items will go into the outbox on Mail while the internat connection is broken. For server based calendars (iCloud, Exchange, Google calendar and other CalDAV calendars) the server is sent a signal via your internet connection and the email is made and sent from the server.

     

    You are not going to be able to stop a server based calendar using the method you subscribe.

     

    For local calendars you might want to look at my application iCal Reply Checker. It is shareware, but runs for 10 days before needing to be paid for.

     

    Best wishes
