just tested this...

I send out an invite via iCal (OS X 10.6.3, Kerio 7.0.1 running on OS X Server 10.6.3) to somebody.

That somebody receives the mail with the invite, clicks the attached .ics file so it opens in his iCal (also 10.6.3). This person uses a standalone iCal, no connection to any server.

in iCal, an invite appears!

I select "agree" to accept the invite.

The user's iCal sends out an .ics file *not* called meeting.ics, but rather with a timestamp name (iCal-20100617-132821.ics). I receive this mail, but iCal does not see it, nor does Kerio.

Not super-effective.

When I extract the attachment, rename it to "meeting.ics" and then mail it to myself again, the invite is confirmed in my iCal.

So what I take from this: Kerio needs the .ics attachment in a mail to be called meeting.ics to work.

I consider this a bug, if there are no other objections and will file this to support, unless you guys have a workaround...

Hmm. Maybe silly question but when you extract the attachment and send it with different name (not meeting.ics) - does it work?
I'm not sure what do you mean with "nor does Kerio" - What client do you mean? WebMail? Outlook? Neither the server nor the clients is requiring this name in order to recognize the meeting request.

But what does happen is that meeting requests sent from Apple Mail (from iCal via Apple Mail) are not compatible with may clients because the event is sent as a file attachment and not as an alternative.

Providing the example emails would help here.
