    Unhappy Exchange calendar invites causing nasty mail loops!

    We've got one individual (but there may be others I haven't heard of yet) that whenever they receive a calendar invite from an Exchange user, a nasty mail loop ensues. Has anybody else had problems with calendar invites from Exchange?

    Suppose user@zimbra is the one experiencing the mail loop, and user@exchange is the one sending the invite. When user@exchange sends a calendar invite to user@zimbra, this Zimbra user's inbox will be flooded--until they hit their quota limit--with thousands of duplicates of this calendar invite. I noticed the messages have tons of lines like these:

    Here's a brief excerpt from maillog.

    So I guess nobody has ever encountered anything like this? Happened again hereby a Zimbra user got an Exchange calendar invite, and ended up with 4,000 copies of that message before I created a filter for the user to delete that mail.

    Hi goo0h,

    I also came across this issue. We are running on Zimbra 6.0.8 and I noticed in the logs that the user from which the original invite originated is using the Zimbra Connector for Outlook.

    Our logfiles show exactly the same as the ones you mention. Have you (or anyone else) been able to resolve this issue?

    Thanks, Thom
