I am using iCal (and iPhone via activesync) and have several caldav accessed calendars on Kerio, including "Calendar", which is to be my default calendar (which gets synced via activesync). I also have another local calendar that gets published to a WedDav server (different server <_a.t_> another location). My problem is that incoming invites go to the published local calendar rather than my default "Calendar", which causes everything to get published to the wrong calendar. What I really want (and indeed works when I don't have any other published calendars) is for these invites to go to my "Calendar" (ie, the calendar synced via caldav with Kerio). How do I go about making this happen properly? I've looked in iCal and don't see an option to set the default calendar (ie, the one that receives invites).

Did you ever find a resolution to this problem? I have just started using iCal on OS X 10.6.1 (switched from Entourage) and when I open a calendar invite in Mail, it always defaults to putting it in my local calendar, not my server calendar which is where I keep everything. If I delete the local calendar, then it does not put the invite anywhere when I click on it.

Is this an Apple iCal issue or is there a way to set a default calendar that all new events go into?? What if you use multiple server side calendars? How do you set priority or a default there??

-----------
Server installation:
Kerio Connect 7.1
OS X Server 10.5.8
Apple G4 X Serve

This is how the Apple application are working. If you open the event in Apple Mail it can be added only to local calendars in iCal. When using CalDAV account in iCal you need to accept the invitation in the iCal and ignore the email in Apple Mail.

So, there are two options:

1. Use local calendars in iCal, sync with KMS via KSC and accept (open) events in Apple Mail.
2. Use CalDAV in iCal and accept the invitations directly in iCal.

I prefer option 2.

iCal on 10.6.+ (10.6.1?) allowes you to move the event between ALL calendars now, from local to server ones - but yes, it still defaults to the first local calendar if you open an event from Mail.

Please file Enhancement Request at bugreport.apple.com !

This is all very well for System Administrators I understand the mechanism going on. But it is difficult for the regular user to understand.

Invites from our domain
Ignore the invitation in Apple Mail.
- The invitation will appear in Apple iCa (Accept, Decline, Maybe in iCal)

Invites from other domains
- Double-click the invitation in Apple Mail to push it to iCal.

The process for getting invites should be consistent for the end user. Perhaps I could hide the invitation in Apple Mail. Is there a recommended way of "hiding" the invitation in Apple Mail so that it still appears in iCal (CalDAV)?

Not quite true!

Invites from other domains
As long as the account is the one that hosts the server calendar, the invites should show up as normal. iCal only polls every 15 min (default).

IF the invitation comes in on Another Mail account, then you are right: The invitation will default go to the first Local calendar, if you have any! (You can safely delete all local calendars, if you don't use them!)
