We are a design practice running the latest versions of iCal and Mail under Leopard in conjunction with KMS 6.5.1. iCal has been working well for both private and public office calendars, but I've run into trouble sharing private calendars with other staff members. iCal seems to handle this without a problem by allowing users to read and write as their permissions allow, but Apple Mail has been throwing a rather annoying hurdle in the way.

When these private calendars are shared, Mail displays a new public folder listing the shared calendar. It's easily identified amongst other public mail folders as it contains no readable content and assigns a tilda (~) to the front of the folder.(i.e. if John shares his calendar to three other users, their Mail app will display a ghosted public folder named ~john<_a.t_>mydomain.com.) All accounts are set up in Mail as Exchange accounts as when we connect as IMAP, yet another calendar appears in iCal causing needless confusion for staff. Is there anyone with information on how to get around this? Any help would be appreciated.

This is a long standing bug with Apple Mail (it has been acknowledged by Apple). Any mail folder starting ~ can't be read in Mail.

I'm not running leopard, I have 10.4.11 on my laptop and everything seems ok. I created 4 extra public calendars on my pc at work and everything shows up in iCal at home.[img]index.php?t=getfile&id=1366&private=0[/img ] I removed the checks from calendars do to information related to my company but there are lots of appointments filled into each calendar.

Everything works correctly, except for the unwanted display of the ghosted folders. There's no need to try to read these in Mail as we use iCal to manage the calendars. Do you know of any way to tell Mail not to make the attempt?

I don't have any ghost folders in mail. The only folders I see are the ones I created to store incoming messages in.

The ghosted folders will only show up when a user is also subscribed to the shared/editable private calendar in webmail. We have to use enable this as some of our staff members need access when at home.

While iCal can see these without a problem using the "delegation" tab in the account settings, you must subscribe to shared calendars manually in webmail under "settings" for them to appear there. This is fine, but once a subscription is set up in webmail, the Mail app starts to display the ghosted "~user<_a.t_>mydomain.com" folders in mail.
