Question: iCloud won't send shared calendar invitation

Short version:

An iCloud calendar won't share from my Apple ID/iCloud#1 to Apple ID/iCloud#2. BUT I can get iCloud#2 to share a calendar to iCloud#1, so I know how to do it. Conclusion: my iCloud#1 isn't behaving properly.

Long version:

I want to share an iCloud calendar from Apple ID/iCloud#1 to Apple ID/iCloud#2. I followed the instructions here: iCloud: Share a calendar with others. It's not happening. I tried over and over; nothing.

It won't send an invitation, and it won't save with whom I want to share it. (when I click the share button to check, it never remembers the email address I typed before):

User uploaded file

(from iCloud.com)

I tried this: iCloud: If you’re not receiving event and shared calendar notifications (though I think the problem is with Cloud#1 not sending) I tried all combinations on both accounts.

To check if I'm doing it right, I tried sharing a different iCloud calendar from iCloud#2, and it worked easy peasy. So I know how to do it correctly, it's just not working on iCloud#1.

I have tried from my desktop iMac (running the latest Yosemite), my iPhone (current iOS), and on iCloud.com.

Apple ID/iCloud#1 is really old, could that have something to do with it? Apple ID/iCloud#2 is about 1 year old.

Unneccessary Details:

iCloud#1 is my person account, iCloud#2 is work. I want my personal calendar to reside on my personal iCloud#1. I know a workaround: put my personal calendar on my work iCloud#2 and it will share it with iCloud#1 and it will work. BUT I just really want to get this working properly in case I don't work here one day.

I'd post this to a Calendars community, but I don't see one. Please let me know if I should post someplace else. Many thanks!

Hey, mine is fixed. I called Apple support, got a really good person. i shared my screen with her, she saw first hand what was happening and escalated it to engineering. So in the end, my Apple ID had been marked as spam, they unlocked the account and she called me back, it is running perfectly.

Hope it helps.
