Calendar delegation & recieving invites

Ah, turns out that you can extract personal names using zmprov. I can post the code if anyone wants it, but the real reason I'm posting is because this bugfix may impact the workaround: Bug 30217 - Need to prevent outlook from sending mail on behalf of another person within the organization. See comment #14.

Test of behavior after upgrading to ZCS 5.0.18 NE suggests that things are still working. See comments I added to bug #30217.

Okay, I better understand how bug #30217 works now. The upshot is that ZWC users aren't affected by the fix, but Outlook users are.
I don't have time at the moment to revise the script. So after running it, you must go into the admin GUI and add the boss's email address under Accounts>assistant_account>Edit>Preferences>Sending mail>Allow sending mail only from these.

Above step may not be necessary if you are running ZCO 5.0.18_GA_3064_5.0.3066 or later. See Bug 40031 - Back out prevention of "Send on Behalf Of" without server pref

[quote user="ewilen"]Okay, based on some reading of the RFCs, I think this will capture any meeting-related message from any source (even Google Calendar), with a fairly low chance of capturing anything else.
If ALL of the following conditions are met:
Body contains Content-Type: text/calendar

Body contains method=

Body contains METHOD:

Body contains VEVENT

Body contains VCALENDAR
Perform the following actions:
File into Folder

I'll test in the morning with the "assistant" using various clients.[/QUOTE]



In 6.0.x, bug 18104 has been implemented, so these filter rules will not work (see bug 42304). Additionally, bug 19898 has been implemented in 6.0.2+.
To continue filtering invitations, users need to convert existing filter rules to the new bug 19898 format.

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't think this will be a problem since GnR directly implements enhancements for this scenario (right?). That is: Bug 23336 - Admin should get email on meeting requests sent to boss and Bug 36481 - Support delegate accept/decline in Outlook/ZCO.
But if I read correctly, the workaround in http://www.zimbra.com/forums/zimbra-connector-outlook/32737-solved-dealing-meeting-confirmations.html isn't going to work anymore in 6.0 since 19898 only provides a filter for invites. I'll need a filter for invitation acceptance/decline messages. Should I file an RFE?
