We found that, if user1 creates a private event and invites user2 to it, the event is not private in the calendar of user2. This is a problem, if the calendars are shared to other users: looking into user1's shared calendar the event details are not accessible, in user2's shared calendar they are.

I would expect, that the event is set private in user2's calendar as well. Is this a bug, or do I just expect something unusual?

Meeting requests are not private by design. Some clients (eg. Apple iCal) don't even allow to set the event as private if there are attendees.
it depends on a client but in general, private flag is not transferred in meeting requests. Some clients may allow to set it manually after accepting the meeting request.

This also happens when only using the webmail interface, IMO at least within the Kerio server this should be implemented.

The private flag is supposed to be used for personal, private appointments (the dentist, the proctologist, the shrink or whatever), not business meetings that have participants. At least that's what the docs said when this groupware feature appeared 15-20 years ago. By definition, a scheduled appointment with participants isn't private (as in, "happens in your own time").

On the other hand, you can have several calendars in your Outlook account, and share all of them with different people. On the other other hand, this calls for user training ...

Actually, all but one of our users cannot have any calendars in their Outlook account for lack of using Outlook Smile, but multiple calendars in Kerio should do just fine.
Thanks for taking the time explaining this to me, I never really thought about the semantics of the private flag until I was asked about this earlier this week.
