Morning,

I have an interesting query where we happily receive our clients emails, but not his calendar invites.  I cannot see why not for the life of me.

We use Exchange 2010, we route our email through Symantec Cloud/Message Labs and have Sophos Pure Message installed as well.

Looking at the Symantec Cloud Track and Trace Logs, the invites are rejected by our Exchange server:

I cannot see why email from same sender is accepted, calendars are not.

Below is email delivery from same sender to same recipient:

What email software used by your client. I remember same issue, where calendar invites are stuck or failed to delivery. You need to ask client to check at their end.

Hi - they are using Lotus Notes!  I have asked the client to check their end too.

Ask them to sent a test invite to your public account like Gmail or Yahoo that can confirm where is the issue.

Yes - invitations reach other recipients, we receive other calendar invites - just not from this one domain.  We do get their email though.

All fixed - our Watchguard IPS was denying the mail with calendar attachments from the specific domain.
