New in Calendar Server 6.3: Event Organizers Can Receive Reply Notifications

The question came up recently about whether the new version of Calendar Server, 6.3, could email notifications to organizers when an attendee replies to an invitation. The answer is YES.

How do you enable this feature? By configuring the ics.confparameter ine.reply.enable. Set it to "y" to enable the feature for the entire system. Set it to "n" to disable the feature. The feature is enabled by default.

The three reply types are: accept, decline, tentatively accept. The notification indicates whether the reply is to a single invitation or to an recurring event. The following new message format file parameters were added. The corresponding format files were also added:

  • calmail.imipeventacceptnotification.fname= "mail_eventacceptnotification.fmt"

  • calmail.imipeventdeclinenotification.fname= "mail_eventdeclinenotification.fmt"

  • calmail.imipeventtentativeacceptnotification.fname= "mail_eventtentativeacceptnotification.fmt"

  • calmail.imipeventacceptnotificationrecur.fname= "mail_eventacceptnotificationrecur.fmt"

  • calmail.imipeventdeclinenotificationrecur.fname= "mail_eventdeclinenotificationrecur.fmt"

  • calmail.imipeventtentativeacceptnotificationrecur.fname= "mail_eventtentativeacceptnotificationrecur.fmt"


Note –

This feature is not a user preference. That is, it is a system wide configuration parameter, so it applies to all users who send invitations.
