    Default Change default email message for shared calendar

    When sharing a calendar in Zimbra the "sharee" must accept the shared calendar in Webmail. However, on our campus, most all administrators and faculty use a mail client (e.g., Mac Mail) and therefore some will receive the shared calendar email as a MIME message attachment in their client. We would like to customize the message one receives when viewed in their client so it includes some text telling them to go to Webmail to accept the shared calendar.

    Is this customization possible?

    Default

    Just to clarify (since I work with Jason):

    We're aware that the end user can customize the text of each invititation, but we want to customize the default message so the end user doesn't need to know to this for each invitation they send.

    Default Customization outside of MIME attachment

    This sounds like good news. However, will this customization be visible outside of the MIME attachment (as seen in Mac Mail clients) or will it only allow us to customize the message users see when they view the message in Webmail or Outlook (Outlook displays the MIME attachment though the message must be acted on in Webmail)?

    Thanks again!
