Upgraded to ML 10.8 and DavMail 4.0 - iCal DavCal account setup flawless. Able to view the Public Exchange 2003 Calendar from work. Which means user + password + path all all correct.
This all works 100% correct. Until….
Until I get a notification (for the Public Calendar in question) through the new ML 10.8 notification Center and the second I close or snooze that notification, all goes haywire. I get asked for my password over and over.
Mind you, if the password weren't correct, I would not have gotten my calendar in the first place. Typing in th epassword does nothing, no errors - If I do type in the wrong password I get a "The server responded with an error" message.
In short, password is correct. There must be something of a hick up with the notification center and DavMail???
Anyone that can replicate? Or better anyone that has a solution to this odd behaviour.
Did you have to do anything special to get iCal to work? I can't get it to update at all - keeps saying it cannot connect to localhost.
For ML 10.8 make sure you update DavMail to version 4. Anything below v 4 is not going to work on ML.
So I get a connection with version 4 perfectly fine, but as soon as a notification kicks in, bam, password prompts galore.
Thanks for the fast response … I'm running Version 4 on ML and still can't get Calendar / Reminders to work. It keeps telling me it can't connect to localhost. When you set it what did you enter for your username and address? Did you use domain/username or just username and for address did you do http://localhost:1080/ or something else?
I used DOMAIN\username as username
again Public_Calendar is the calendar I need to get access to, so if you are trying to access a public calendar, you will need to know the name. If you are trying to access to a user calendar it would be similar to: http://localhost:email@example.com
P.S. public calendars cannot have spaces in them!!! They won't work - at my work the calendar was once called Public Calendar. They needed to change it to Public_Calendar for it to work for me.
For now it seems a "workaround' appears to work. Set Calendar notifications from Alerts to Banners.
However still odd that I get the password request when using "Alerts"
Thanks for the help, but I still can't get it to connect to the localhost. It sets up fine, so I know it sees it briefly, but then after that it can't connect to download my calendar events or reminders.
In Alert mode it's probably trying to update event on the server on Dismiss => as the calendar is readonly you get an authorization error.
Would you mind sending me screenshots of your calendar setup in iCal > Accounts. This would be the Account Information Tab & Server Settings Tab? I just can't see what I'm doing wrong and it still won't work.
Also, I'm running 10.8.1 if that makes a difference?
