Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2008 3:04 AM (in response to Stefaan Top)My wife has a G4 Mac mini with Mac OS X 10.5.4. Since June 18th,
whenever she adds an event and closes iCal, the event is lost upon
If I invite her to an event and she receives my email invitation, she
clicks on the event and this opens her iCal, adds the event at the
proper date. She accepts my invitation and closes iCal. When she opens
it again, the event is there but it is not accepted (in grey) and the
notification menu shows the event to be accepted.
If she creates a new event, invites me and closes iCal, iCal forgets
about this new event. It appears no where. If I accept the event, she
receives the notification but there is no event on her calendar.
Solutions tried: trash ical.plist files, restore previous calendar
(many trials), restart the computer, repair the autorisations. Nothing
So I tried to create a new account on her computer under System
preferences/accounts. This account works OK with iCal. it accepts new
events and records them, it also accepts invitations and records
So, I think that the problem may be with some preference file or the
calendars themselves, (she uses only two calendars).

Currently Being ModeratedJan 5, 2009 1:24 PM (in response to Stefaan Top)I've had this identical issue since mid-October 2008. After searching numerous times for the solution, I got fed up and did some serious digging.
Fortunately, I've figured out the solution:
Stuck with a notification that keeps coming back like the proverbial bad penny?
Step 1: Quit iCal
Step 2: Locate and delete the offending notification in ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iCal/Incoming/
Step 3: Open iCal and sigh in relief as the notification is gone for good.
Hope that helps,

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 16, 2009 10:10 PM (in response to Stefaan Top)Thanks for the posted solution to this problem which I've had for some months.
I have since also worked out how I can replicate this problem consistently on my Mac. Each time I receive an invitation via e-mail (specifically from Lotus Notes, although I'm not certain the source of the invitation matters), but my iCal is not already launched, the mime attachments and .ics files persist in the relevant cache folder, causing the notifications to re-appear when I quit and re-launch iCal.
Perhaps others might like to test this out on their own setups and see if you too can consistently replicate the problem. That might help Apple work on a permanent, systemic fix to this issue.
