Following a recent office move and upgrade from Kerio Mail Server 6.6.1 to 6.6.2 all the iPhone users at one of my sites have reported that they can no longer see subscribed calendars on their phones - only their own.

They can still see other users calendars in iCal, and using Kerio Webmail.

Is this a deliberate change in KMS 6.6.2? If so it seems a major step backwards. Or is this a symptom of something else?

I have tried

1) unsubscribing and resubscribing to the calendars using webmail
2) removing the mobile device using Kerio Administration Console to force a full resync
3) turning over-the-air calendar syncing off and on again on the iPhones

None of these have brought the calendars back.

Do I need to downgrade to 6.6.1 to keep these users happy? I'd rather not be trading off security and other new features against this one important feature.

They tested the delegated calendar with Activesync but then revoked that feature somewhere along the line. Now, v3.0 of the iPhone software will support caldav (mentioned in the keynote so no NDA is being violated) so theoretically you should be able to see calendars via caldav.

It's worked for every version from 6.5.something through to 6.6.2 and I see nothing in the changelog for 6.6.2 patch 2 about ActiveSync behaviour being changed. I'm going to try reverting to 6.6.2 for now. I have some very unhappy users who have been used to scheduling meetings whilst out and about and are now having to wait until they can get back to their laptops to see when their colleagues are free.

I knew the Public calendar didn't work, but other users subscribed calendars definitely have worked for the last year or so.

You mean set up an Exchange account on the iPhone for mail + contacts, then a separate CalDAV account for calendars? That's twice as much configuration per user...

If Snow Leopard Server integrates as well with iPhone OS 3.0 as it looks like it will (CalDAV, CardDAV, LDAP, push email), then I'm not sure I see a place for Kerio any more. Am I missing something?

Snow Leopard looks decent, but probably won't be cross-platform. Where's the Outlook plugin? It will work with the iPhone but it probably won't be auto-configuring either, you will have to go through the same caldav setup as with Kerio.

The iPhone doesn't support calendar delegation, either with Exchange or Kerio. It's a limitation of the iPhone itself.

That's not an issue for any of my clients, but is a good question. I had thought that I'd seen Outlook mentioned somewhere, but can't find that any more.

Hopefully the Configuration Utility will be updated so this can be automated

I don't understand this. Are you saying my clients have imagined being able to see each others calendars for the last year they have been using Kerio? It is only after updating KMS to 6.6.2 patch 2 that they lost the ability to see subscribed calendars on their iPhones.

Nope, they didn't imagine anything. I saw it myself on both my company's server, and my hosted servers until it "went away" with v6.6. Kerio's position is that Activesync doesn't officially support delegated calendars, so they removed the feature from KMS.

Here's a thread with more info:

So, it worked with KMS 6.5.x, was officially disabled with 6.6.x, but continued to work for any users who had set up subscribed calendars before the server upgrade?

I really need to get this back - how far back do I need to downgrade before upgrading again to 6.6.2? And what other problems should I expect to have to fix after downgrading?
