Apple iCal supports the CalDAV protocol since Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Support of Kerio MailServer currently allows:
synchronization of calendars,
synchronization of To Do with the Task folder,
scheduling of meetings,
delegation of calendars,
providing Free/Busy information of Kerio MailServer users,
Calendar Availability setting.
setting of private events in calendars (featured on Apple iCal 3.0.3 and higher).
Starting of CalDAV synchronization in Apple iCal automatically disables calendar synchronization via Kerio Sync Connector. Synchronization of contacts, if defined, is not interrupted.
In addition to configuration of the CalDAV account, the tool sets Kerio MailServer as an Open Directory server in Directory Utility on the client computer. Thanks to this setting, the user can use full delegation features in their Apple iCal.
The tool is available for download and startup on a special page called Integration with Mac OS X. To open this page, use the following URL address in your browser:
