Saving Time: Flip the Switch to Handle iMIP

Messaging Server 7 Update 5 and Calendar Server 7 Update 3 Combine to Process Calendar Invites

DalĂ­ Clockface by Philippe Halsman, 1953

As with any new release of software, there may be new features that don't immediately jump out at you or that fly under the radar. So here's one that might fall into that case for the Communications Suite 7 Update 4 release: you can configure Messaging Server and Calendar Server to automatically process calendar invitations from "external" users. By "external," we mean users who reside either on a different Calendar Server deployment administered by a separate group, or on an outside calendaring system, such as Exchange, Google Calendar, and so on.

Technically, what we are talking about here is configuring Messaging Server to post a calendar event received in an iMIP (iCalendar Message-Based Interoperability Protocol) message to Calendar Server by using the iSchedule protocol. That way, users don't have to do any manual processing on the external calendar invite. The Calendar Server deployment automatically processes these invitations coming from external calendar systems, and to users, handling an external calendar invite then appears just like an calendar internal invite. Time saved, users more happy, what could be better than that?

See the following documentation for more of the techie details and procedures to set up your Messaging Server 7 Update 5 deployment:
