Whenever I update anything on my shared calendar, all those who subscribe to it get an email/notification about what I've changed or added.

Same if someone who I'm subscribed to updates anything on their calendar, I get an inbox full of emails telling me they have done so.


Am I able to stop sending these update emails/notifications? And/or is there a setting to stop recieving these update emails/notifications?

iCal, Calendar and iCloud

Yes, thank you all for your input!

It seems apple has now fixed the problem, as no more notification emails have been recieved for over a day.

All sorted now I think, Just heard from the apple support technician and we tried it and apparently they have sorted the issue.

    Same problem. I've gone through every setting. I'm convinced this is on the server/Apple side. Extremely annoying.

    Count me in, my wife and I are sharing ICal between 2 Macs 2 IPhone and 1 IPad and as of yesterday every time one of us modifies anything in ICal it sends a invitation to the other ....very anoying

    Count me in, too. It's happening in only one direction: my wife's calendar to me but not mine to hers.


    I've checked settings. "E-mail me when this calendar is changed" is not checked for any calendar on anyone's account.


    The only difference between her and me that I can think of is that her laptop runs SL rather than Lion. (This is a Quicken thing; now that Quicken 2007 seems to be operating reliably on another Lion machine in the house, she'll switch to Lion on her laptop, too.) But I also get the notices from events she creates on her iPhone and iPad.

    This just started happening to me as well, last night out of the blue. It's massively annoying.


    I'd guess this is probably some kind of bug on the server side, but man does Apple need to figure out what it is and change it quickly, because if I'm going to be getting emails every 5-10 minutes just because someone edited an event, then I'm going to have to stop using iCal/iCloud.

    It appears that for some reason it's ignoring the setting on the shared calendar setting in iCloud on sending email notifications.  It appears from the traffic here that this is something that changed last night and needs to be fixed. It certainly is annoying...

    I have my calendar shared with 10 people in my work, we all share calendar, Last night we got about 300 emails each.


    APPLE Please fix this ASAP please.....

  • hockeymom3 Level 1 Level 1

    I am having the same problem with 3 shared calendars with 3 different people.  It started last night for one person and today for the other two.

  • justlaur Level 1 Level 1

    Several of my clients also experiencing the same thing as of last night.

  • Christian Theussl Level 2 Level 2

    This must be a problem from Apple's iCloud site, because also we all (wife, colleague ...) get suddenly emails about new, changed etc. events on shared calendars. Just started sometime this morning here ...

    Time to contact iCloud support...

  • Totho Level 1 Level 1

    I just contact them, but let's keep pushing so they fix it fast....

    They told me they were not aware of the problem, but the tech guy tested by himself in his account and he got the same problem.

  • blume Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem here. Must be an iCloud problem. It seems it started after the software upgrade yesterday, but this may be unrelated. It clearly is an Apple problem, as nothing in our settings has changed.


    Apple: Please fix this ASAP. It is rendering iCloud useless for enterprise use.

  • neoonline Level 1 Level 1

    Same here,


    Went into my icloud account tried switching it on and off to see what was the difference, no difference, someting must be wrong at Apple.

  • mgoehring Level 1 Level 1

    Here's hoping Apple gets this resolved ASAP before I drown in email notifications

  • Christian Theussl Level 2 Level 2

    Maybe you want to make a rule in Mail preferences to delete emails with a certain wording in the Subject (or at least to move it to a new folder to be on the safe side). Than you will not drown
