Hi folks.

I've been trying to get this working: sending an invitation to an event, to a mailing list, using a KMS Calendar. (Mac environment, KMS, with Mail app and iCal)

For the attendee for the meeting, I put a mailing list address (e.g. staff<_a.t_>domain).

Staff receive the invite, but clicking on it does nothing, and it does not appear automatically in their iCal. This is because the email address for the attendee is 'staff<_a.t_>domain' not their email address.

The work around I've found is this:

  • Create a normal appointment and fill in general details in your KMS Calendar, but leave the attendee field empty
  • Close the appointment event
  • Right-click on the appointment event
  • Select Mail Event
  • Mail app should open, with an .ics meeting attachment
  • Address the message to the appropriate people / mailing list
  • Send the message
  • When the recipient(s) receive the message, they can click on the attachment, to get taken to iCal
  • iCal should ask which Calendar you want to put the event into
  • That's it.

Note: You won't get any RSVP information from anyone via this method, unless a person replies to your original email, and advises you of their attendance. But since you're emailing a mailing list, this is expected behavior.

Hope this solution helps someone else... Of course, if there is a better idea, I'm happy to hear it Smile.
