iCAL Email Notification Nightmare
Posted on 2012-03-11
I have been struggling big time with the iCal EXTERNAL notifications to work.
We have our ISP X that provides us with email that has domain mybusiness.com
I first attempted to set up ical email notifications but I could not get it to work with an external ISP Email host solution.
Then, I proceeded to use the OSX Server as the Mail server and create an account linked to my iCal Admin so the email would be iCalAdmin@mycompany.com
Sending an email works Great but the problem happens when external users attempt to reply and here is where I would like some guidance:
We all know that external replies to ical invites have the format of <firstname.lastname@example.org> When external users reply to my ical notification, they get an undeliverable email...why? because mycompany.com mail server is handled by my ISPs!! hope its not too confusing...the easy answer would be to change the domain of my ical server but I want to know if someone ever got this working right with an ISP email hosted environment.
Hope it is clear; if not let me know! Thank you
