Calendar Invitations Through E-Lists Working
An issue that had prevented calendar invitations or events from working after passing through an e-list has been fixed. Calendar events sent to an e-list should now show up on list mail recipients’ calendars.
Over the course of the past several months, the vendor for the service, Aurea, developed a solution for the problem and put it in an update that CIT staff put in place on Sunday, October 21. Since then, monitoring and testing indicate that the service is supporting calendar events properly.
Because calendar event invitations will always be more reliable when they pass through fewer systems, whenever possible, send invitations directly to recipients. However, sending calendar events to e-lists should work reliably.
