    Default Outlook 2007 can't find ical

    I am trying to sync my Zimbra calendar with Outlook 2007 and by that also with my MDA.

    The new Outlook supports iCal which should make it possible.
    To configure it in Outlook I go to tools->account settings->internet calendars->new
    Then I use "https://mail.domain.com:8443/home/username/Calendar" as URL.
    After clicking OK I get the message: "Cannot verify or add the internet calendar in Outlook. Verify the link is a valid calendar link.".
    I never get a login prompt in Outlook.

    Using exactly the same URL in Mozilla Sunbird and even Windows Vista Calendar it works perfectly.

    Does anyone have an idea what goes wrong in Outlook 2007?

    Using Zimbra Open source edition 4.5.6

    Unfortunately it gives the same result.

    Outlook just won't ask me for a password.

    Same problem here. I can connect fine to Zimbra 5.0 RC2 with any other mail client. However with Outlook 2007 it fails.

    http://10.0.0.45/zimbra/home/rick/calendar.ics
    https://10.0.0.45/zimbra/home/rick/calendar.ics
    http://10.0.0.45/zimbra/home/rick/calendar?fmt=ics
    https://10.0.0.45/zimbra/home/rick/calendar?fmt=ics

    none of them work....

    It cannot verify that the link is a valid link, just as reported above. Anyone who solved this?

    Kind regards,
    Rick

    can you hit that url with a browser?
    if you use SSL and have a self-signed cert, you must install the cert first.

    hrmm, this issue seems to be with or without tls enabled.

    I currently have ours setup with zmtlsctl both previously was redirect but for attempting to add an internet calendar I've changed this to both.

    I have tried with webcal or http links and even inserting the username and password similar to how thunderbird has it setup and still cannot add the calendar to Outlook 2007.

    I've tried -

    webcal://usernameassword@hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar.ics
    webcal://usernameassword@hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar?fmt=ics
    webcal://hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar.ics
    webcal://hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar?fmt=ics

    and all the above combinations with http and https without any luck.

    I know I could simply use the connector but I already have all our staff setup without it and would like to continue without it (older people simply don't like change).

    Any help greatly appreciated!
