I've been using iCal successfully with Office365 for a while now.

Recently, accepted meetings in mail do not show up in iCal. New meetings created in the Office web ap do not show in iCal.


Events created in iCal, oddly, show up in Office365 web app - no issue.


So - iCal is not pulling info from office365.


Any ideas? thoughts about troubleshooting?


I tried deleting and re-adding the account (under accounts, in maverics) - no Joy.

Going into ~Library and deleting everything under ~Library/Calendars - no joy


Any thoughts?

iCal, OS X Mavericks (10.9), iCal 7.0

    i'm having this problem as well. It appears when i'm making an open file alarm to an event using AppleScript. The function to add a filepath to the alarm has modified, i think. I tested to get (with applescript) the filepath of an existing open file alarm and the result was {””}.

    ok, so i think i got mine sorted out.


    i happened to have access to Outlook 2010 on a PC. i followed Monica Tong's directions to switch Outlook Calendar to list view, and proceeded to mass-delete old calendar data. in doing this a few times, i guess i removed the offending event (it was in a section titled "Recurrence: Weekly", i believe).


    one thing to note: in order for this to work immediately, i *did* have to switch-off "Use Cached Exchange Mode" in Outlook 2010 under Account Settings > Data Files > Settings... > Advanced. (see:


    i vaguely remember playing with running an AppleScript as an alarm for an event a couple years ago, so i guess that was what was making it fail. not to say there's not still an issue between Office 365 and Mavericks...


    hope this helps someone
