I'm playing for the first time with looking with my availability in iCal / Lion / MobileMe CalDAV accounts.


Everything else is working well with my calendars and Mobile Me.


I can add events, remove them, edit them, the sync is working well between the web interface and iCal on my Mac (10.7)


The only thing amiss is the availability window just logs an error to the console after a short time out.


It's error 403 which seems to be a permission denied error.


Do I need to grant permission for MobileMe to publish my free/busy status anywhere?

It it locked down until I allow sharing?

Is it tied to sharing a calendar some how?


Just sending a call out to others in case I'm missing something obvious. There are instances of this error on the boards with iCal and 10.6.6. so I presume it's more a server setup / service interruption than something I can change.


Thanks for any input - even if it's a "it works for me right now" or "I too can't get mobile me status in iCal"


(p.s. Mobile Me support says they can't help - talk with iCal people.)

(p.s. After two hours on the phone with iCal - it's back to the MobileMe people to try again. I figured I'd give a shout here before I try them again...)


Here's the error message from /private/var/log/system.log

    And the iCal techs were able to see my correct availability on their macs. My information is correct on the servers as seen by their 10.6 and 10.7 macs - just my mac can't see my availability. (or anyone else's availablility as far as I can determine)

    I have a similar issue. My girlfriend is using a yahoo address and for the life of me I cannot send her an iCal invite from my me.com or mac.com address. It never shows up in her email, not in inbox, not in junk, not deleted. I get an exclamation point on her name in the iCal invite. I can send her invites from Gmail. I created a test account on yahoo and I can send invites to that test account.


    Of course I can email her just fine. I can open the invite in iCal, select the down arrow on her name and select "send email" that works just fine. I try to "invite again" and nothing... this is maddening


    I've deleted iCal cache, deleted her contact, tried just using her smtp yahoo address, i don't have this issue with anyone else that I know of...
