Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

Q: Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the calendar is checked).

A: Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account ( and use that to sync all the calendars account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/ calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

so i changed the new account to a Exchange account setting , and also notice i need to enter the info incorrectly first to then get prompted to enter the information

set the account up for just calendar
Set the calendar as default

and al works

just means she will only have 1 calendar , if she wants to sync between all devices

Hello there,

I'm coming to the end of my tether with Windows Live Mail.

I've had this laptop for just over a year and up until about 4 months ago the mail facility provided by Windows 7 was working perfectly. I previously had my 2 Hotmail accounts synced up and receiving and sending emails no problem.

That is until it died - it stopped receiving mail and started giving me error messages, in despair I began to search online for solutions however I either didn't find anything relating to my Vaio model or the things I did find which could possibly have helped, didn't. I tried deleting the accounts and re-syncing them too - error. (I can't remember these error messages or their codes)

I lost all hope as had other problems with slow start up, slow running time, slow mouse etc. and returned to checking my emails through my browser. Recently I got myself in gear and cleaned the system, defragment etc, and the laptop is back to its almost new state, so I thought I'd give Windows Live Mail another shot.

Same problem I think, will not sync the accounts what so ever, even though the nice little message is telling me:
"Windows Live Mail is synchronising this account.... Read more

A:Windows Live Mail on Vaio won't Sync with Hotmail email accounts??!

What security software are you using, that might be blocking WLM connecting.
Do you have an ad blocker as that can cause it, as can a proxy being set or used

A misconfigured firewall can also cause it as can having malware on teh computer

From the other symptoms, I would guess at malware

Well, I discovered the bad news that Windows Mobile Device Center doesn't work with Outlook 2010 if installed as 64 bit. Microsoft says to "fix" this by uninstalling Office 2010 and installing the 32 bit version! Ha! They have no plans for a real fix.

My question is are there any 3rd-party sync programs that will work with Windows 7 64 bit and Microsoft Office Outlook 64 bit and Windows Mobile 6.5 devices? I don't need to sync email but I do need to sync calendar, contacts, and tasks. And yes, I am aware that the iphone will sync with it! Silly Microsoft. I have 1.5 years left on my mobile contract with my Windows Mobile 6.5 phone, so I am stuck for now.

Hi, I am trying to make an excel file link to an Outlook Calendar. Basically I have three columns: Subject, Date, Body, Contact. Ideally I would like to make an appointment for every row. The subject would be the subject of the appointment, the date is when the reminder would go off, the body will read the same thing every time "This proposal was submitted 60 days ago," and the contact is the person who should receive the reminder. Just like how you invite people to an event or meeting in Outlook. This list will be actively added to, so I have included a button to run the macro to update the calendar. Unfortunately I have only have gotten Outlook to pop up and then it runs into errors when trying to create the appointment. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am running in Excel 2010, and have a bit of experience in VBA but have never done something quite like this. Thanks!

Some questions about Windows 8 People (contacts) and Calendar:

Currently I configred Win 8 People to access my Gmail account (as my Gmail contacts are already a synced copy of my Outlook 2010 contacts). So right now, everything is in sync using this path:Outlook 2010 (Source) >> Gmail contacts >> 8 PeopleIs there a better way?

2) For Start/Calendar, the calendar entries appear to be seamlessly synced with, which is fine, but is there a direct way to access my Outlook 2010 desktop calendar? I did not see any configuration option on where to point Win 8 calendar to (like I saw in People) . What I did for now is add the account to my Outlook 2010 profile and from there auto-populate it (synced) from Gmail calendar. So right now, everything is in sync using this path:Outlook 2010 (Source) <> Gmail calendar >> Outlook 2010 ( account) > Win 8 CalendarIs there a better way?

What's the deal with this Windows Live Hotmail conspiracy?

I say conspiracy because it seems it has simply taken over my MSN Hotmail accounts, causing me to leave behind my MSN Premium Browser after being "forced" to make the switch a few weeks ago, and now it seems that I'm not going to be able to retrieve my (formerly MSN Hotmail - now WLH) using my Outlook Express.

I'm pretty upset about this....

I've used Microsoft Exchange in the past to do this, but it seems like over kill... and it's a little overcomplicated for me. I was hoping I could just do all this with Gmail, but it seems that I need MS Exchange to do it that way too.

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

Hi - my first day here and am not techno savvy, so please allow for my ignorance!

I have outlook (formerly hotmail) and never use Windows Live Mail, yet I see (quite baffliingly) that I have some emails of mine that are on there...some from past years. (?) I never did anything to initiate the transfer of any emails here and have never logged in to Windows Live Mail. I don't really want it on my system if it is superfluous to requirements.

Does it have a use if you already have another email address set up? If so, please explain.

If not, how do I delete it from my system. Thanks.

A:Windows Live Mail - superfluous to outlook/hotmail? Deleting it?

You can get email in one of two ways. You can either go to the website and get your mail. The other way is to have the mail downloaded to your computer with WLM. If you use WLM you can get off the internet and read your mail. If you sell your computer and you did not delete the mail, the computer buyer can see your mail. If you have several email addresses, you can read them all in WLM. Do you need WLM? Based upon the information the decision is yours. Personally, I use WLM and only go to the website for my mail when I am not using my own computer. Any questions please ask.
If you want to delete it, go to control panel and look for Windows Essentials or Windows Live Mail. If you see WLM it can be deleted. If you see Windows Essentials, there may be other software that you would, also delete. You can go to Windows Essentials, on the internet and see what other programs may be included.

I'm new here. My search yielded a many, many hits (some very old & some not so old), but raised additional issues of "Hotmail" vs "Windows Live Hotmail", etc.

Because of POP3 issues, Outlook Express no longer works on my WinXP computer. That's fine . . . I've adjusted to using Windows Live Hotmail. Whenever I click on a link (not Reply, Forward, etc) in an e-mail (or elsewhere?) to e-mail someone, it always opens Outlook Express. At the moment, I can't remember if this also happens on my Vista laptop, but I don't think so.

Is there a way to get these links to open Windows Live Hotmail?

Other forums provided the following, but haven't solved my problem.

I tried, unsuccessfully, to change the default e-mail program (using Firefox3.6 Help instructions for changing WinXP defaults). Nothing gave Windows Live Hotmail as a choice.

I also tried
Start Menu Tab
Customize and make the email link point to Windows Live Mail (or similar wording).
Changed to "Hotmail" (is that the same as Windows Live Hotmail?)
Applied, etc
Restarted computer (Start | Turn Off Computer | Restart)
Went to Windows Live Hotmail (via Firefox)
Opened an e-mail that contained a link ([email protected])
Clicked on link
Outlook Express STILL opens.

When Microsoft started the new hotmail, I guess they made it so you have to have a special download in order for it to work with Outlook. Before this, I have used Hotmail in conjunction with Outlook with no problems. When I go to the download center to get the required download, you are required to validate your copy of Outlook. I KNOW that my copy is genuine. But it keeps coming back saying "no Microsoft Office products were found on this PC". Thus, I can't get the download. I need it to use Outlook. How to I get this download to work?

I need a good email program as I am tired of logging on just to check if there are new emails. I know that Outlook is considered the numero uno program for managing emails, but I've also heard of Windows Live Mail, that it is the reincarnation of Outlook Express which personally I've never liked and never used, is considered quite capable of getting the job done, and it is also free, unlike the quite expensive Outlook 2010 (as a part of the whole Office 2010 pack).

So, why do I need a costly program for handling emails if I can get one for free? Why do people praise Outlook so much when they have a free alternative?

Any help will be appreciated.


A:Outlook 2010 vs Windows Live Mail

I have been using an email cliient since windows 98 and it has always been the client that came with the OS; Outlook Express, Windows Mail and now Windows Live Mail and never a problem. Lets think about this, its used to check mail, if it does that its good enough. People that say too slow, mail missing, does not work is just in peoples minds; it works fine. In answer to your question, I would suggest that you use any of these fine clients; bottom line they are all the same
Before, I get the response that Windows Live Mail does not come with the system, I know that.

Any of these will suit your needs.

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

A:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

Hi, I have a hotmail account and use outlook express 6 for sending/receiving emails.

For the past 6 weeks, my hotmail folders have been disappearing daily, and I have to synchronise each folder and re-download all the messages in them. Its even more frustrating with my 56K connection. This happens even while I'm writing emails at the time with OE opened. When this happens a message appears;

"There are not any folders to show for this account. Would you like to view a list of available folders now? Y/N"

'Set program access and defaults' is set to use outlook express. I searched heaps and found this page;

I followed though the steps, but it made no difference to the sync problem. I run AVG, spybot, ewido and windows defender daily. I also ran a panda scan, with no infections detected.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

I inadvertently hit the Outlook Express icon on my desktop. All my emails in my Windows Live inbox were then exported into Outlook Express and the emails no longer appear in my Windows Live inbox. Supposedly, I can import the emails back into Windows Live using the File menu in Windows Live. However, I cannot find the Windows Live file menu. Supposedly, I can hit my Alt M key and make the full menu appear in Windows Live. However, hitting the Alt M key on my keyboard has no effect on Windows Live.

To sum up.

How do I make the File menu appear in Windows Live?
Once I get access to the File menu, how do I complete the import process from Outlook Express to Windows Live?

So I installed Office 2010 a few weeks back, and since then I haven't been able to use HTC sync to back up contacts, calendar entries or anything to at all to do with Outlook. I keep getting the same damn error:

"Either there is no default email client or the current mail client cannot fulfil the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client".

I figured this was incompatibility since Outlook 2010 was new at the time and HTC Sync had been released beforehand. The problem though, is that there's been a new version of HTC Sync since, with a completely new style and everything, but it still doesn't work.

Has anyone sorted this problem out?

I have an old desktop PC (circa 2002) running XP

On that PC, I have been using Office Professional Plus 2010 & Outlook to access my email account (POP)

I just purchased a Win8 laptop. Since the Win8 Mail app will not work with POP email accounts, my email/internet access provider (Comcast) recommended using Windows Live Mail (I'm using 2012 version). This works fine for new emails. However, I have not been able to find a way to "move" the historical emails from my Outlook 2010 (PC) to WinMailLive (laptop.)

Exporting the emails from Outlook 2010 creates a .PST file which is not recognized by WinMailLive.

I tried using MailStore, but it will only archive email from the Inbox for POP accounts.

Anyone know of a way to move emails from Outlook 2010 to WNL 2012, that is easier than forwarding all the historical emails to myself from the Outlook PC & then reorganize them in WML on the laptop?

Thanks - mg

I currently use Windows Live Mail.
I was looking at "Office Home and Student 2010" and "Office Home and Business 2010" (1 user license).
Business has Outlook, where as Student doesn't.
Is Outlook "better" in any way than WLM?

A:Outlook 2010 vs. Windows Live Mail (Office suite)

Outlook is a paid program so it will have more functionality than WLM, but they will both have their ups and downs. Either you use free WML or pay for Outlook.

Windows Live Mail is free software which lacks the full functionality of Outlook. If you want to have something for free, use Live Mail. If you want something professional that will integrate your calendar, contacts, and email, use Outlook. Additionally, Outlook can connect to Microsoft Exchange Server, which should be considered if you are in a business environment.

As far as migration benefits, Outlook is far superior than Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express. Outlook stores all of your emails and data in a Microsoft Personal File Folder (PST File) which can be simply copied from your old computer to new computer if you ever buy a new system. Windows Live Mail is much more complicated and difficult to migrate.

from Should I be using Windows Live Mail or Outlook? - Super User

I would research the functions of both and see which one you prefer.

Hi all,

All of you ye know, that in outlook (in "calendar" screen) more then one calendar is available. In my case under "my calendars" link appear 2 calendars, called: "calendar" and "birthdays calendar". The first one is just calendar, where holydays, tasks and so on (except birthdays) are marked and another calendar is only full of my contacts' birthdays.

Could I combine them? I don't like having more then one calendar. I'd rather have ONE and full calendar, where all events (tasks, holydays and so on together with birthdays) are given.

If anyone knows how to combine two calendars, please help me.

What I'm trying to do is just set an event on the calendar as an appointment and then have a reminder sent to me one week before.

I thought I had set it up but I haven't received any type of reminder (not sure if it will be an email or a popup alert of some kind) for a test that I set up.

The default reminder is set for 15 minutes in Options - Calendar - Calendar options but I know you can change that for each individual appointment that you set up.

So I'm not sure what I did wrong.

Also, how do you access the calendar without having to turn the ToDo bar on which takes up a lot of the screen on the right side?

I have a strange situation with Outlook 2010 (using Windows 7 HP), whereby dates of birthdays have become corrupt.

I have family birthdays set up as recurring events. I recently noticed that some of them have been corrupted, in that three that occur in December have been changed to different months: one to January and two to April. I became aware of this because the ?reminder? for a December birthday appeared yesterday (15th April).

I say I use Outlook 2010, but the situation is a bit more complex: I have two older PCs running Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003 respectively and I synchronise these regularly with the Outlook 2010 PC, using Code Two Outlook Sync. I also use Kies 3 to synchronise the Outlook 2010 PC with my Samsung Galaxy S4.

I don?t know exactly when the corruption occurred, but I have been doing the aforementioned synchronisations for several years without problem.

The strange thing is that I have a number of other, annual recurring events and none of them seems to be affected. My concern is that whilst I immediately spot the errors in family birthdays [because I know them], there may be other reminders [e.g. to pay bills] that I?m not so familiar with, and I wouldn?t necessarily spot it if they had become corrupted.

Any suggestions as to the cause would be very welcome!

We use Outlook 2010 with Exchange 2010.
There is a calendar in the public folders. Several People have the permission as "author" for this public Folder calendar.

One of the "authors" creates an appointment with a reminder in his own calendar.
Then he copies this appointment with the reminder to the calendar of the public folder.

A public Folder itself does not Support a reminder in the calendar. But if you copy an appointment with a reminder from your own Outlook calendar to the calendar in the public Folder, then a reminder in a calendar of a public Folder is supported.

The result is: Every other "author" gets this reminder popping up in his own Outlook calendar.

The question is: How to prevent the reminders popping up in the outlook of the other "authors"?

Icon on lower bar says " Outlook is syncing folders "

Sends fine, is getting stuck receiving 1 of 6 messages 7kb of 1.5 mb

Have gone into ISP mail portal & deleted all incoming mail. Looks to be trying to receive messages from couple days ago ?

I went off line & tried to delete a couple newer large ( 4-10 MB ) emails .

No luck deleting so when back online. Can still use the program somewhat.
Emails can be viewed , but not moved or deleted. Doing this will cause a premanent "processing" icon.

Still thinking those couple large files caused this & would like to find a way to delete them.

Other profiles in outlook work fine. Only the main default profile is freezing.

Hi, I'm using OL 2010 with Windows 7 Pro x64. I have this problem of OL not syncing all my imap accounts. I have various imap account for different purpose. One for reading tech journal, one for ebay and so forth. Right now, I will only see there is incoming mail when I click on it. Once I look on the folder once then I will see new mail w/o having to click the account to see new mail. I though imap suppose to automatically get email for me or am I wrong?

I have just purchased a new laptop running windows 7 64 bit and Office 2010 for Home and Business. I installed the lates Palm desktop software in an effort to sync my Tungsten E (2004) with Outlook. No dice. One recommendation was to purchase a USB/Moschip to link with IR. I would like to know if anyone is developing drivers to overcome the 2010 issue. I do not want to load an older version of Outlook.

I have a new laptop running Windows 7. I downloaded Office Office Professional Plus 2010. I tried to both import saved .pst files imported from my old computer but that didn't seem to work. So tried to sync my Iphone with Outlook hoping to load that information onto Outlook but Outlook crashed & will no longer open.

How do I import my old records to Outlook as the Import/Export function didn't seem to work?
Is there anyway to sync an I phone to Outlook 2010?

BUT MOST IMPORTANT: before that how do I get my Outlook to function at all?

Sheila, Welcome to Windows 7 Support forums,
I will answer your issues in 2 parts! The issue of Iphone and Outlook, specificall the sync issue is not the fault of Windows 7 or Outlook. The issue revolves around Apple and the Itunes program. Previous versions of Itunes have a small bridge program which is an add on, the add ons are used for specific program calls such as Outlook, outlook uses the add ons to sync data from within their databases to import/export data to and from specific programs. When Office 2010 was released as a beta and now final Apple had not written the add in for outlook to execure. It gets even more complex as Office is now released in a 64 bit version so the Itunes v9.1.1 has no such add in yet.
The second issue of Outlook importing in pst files caused a corruption so I woulsd remove Outlook and re-install dependin... Read more

Hi there.
I'm using outlook2010 on two computers. Both have the same IMAP Gmail account set up.
When I'm accessing outlook 2010 on my laptop, I receive new headers but these same headers won't show up in my desktop outlook 2010. Since the same account is set up as IMAP no both computers, shouldn't I see the same inbox?



A:IMAP folders doesn't sync outlook 2010

Yes, you should. I had some trouble with Outlook changing my Port numbers when I would select SSL and TLS Authentication, which is likely your issue. Be sure to check the second computers settings so they are the following:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993 Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587 Account Name: your full email address (including Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comEmail Address: your full Gmail email address ([email protected]) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comPassword: your Gmail password


I think MS is still working some kinks out with the IMAP intergration so if all else fails you can switch to SMTP in the interim depending on your OS.

Ok, I have read all the post regarding this problem, but I do not get it and have to confess: love the Win10mobile, but with all the fuss around this platform I give up.
I have Lumia 930, latest .321 update, done hard resets, tried all the "tricks" and still nothing. Two days ago received the last update, hoped that this will finally fix live tile to update the date, but I lost all the hope now. Luckily there is MyCalendar which works perfectly! Do not get it how mighty MS can not fix this problem. For me WM is dead, unfortunately. I will have the Lumia till it's finished, but my next phone, though that's hard for me to accept, will be iphone. If anyone knows trick, besides WDRT, which than again is no 100% guarantee fix, let me know, pls. Sergej

For some reason on one of our systems, running Outlook 2010, there is an issue with sending a New Meeting.

I select the Calendar. From the menu, "New Meeting". The New meeting screen opens. I enter in the subject, body, and have three contacts listed in "TO". That's it, and I click Send.

My recipients received this as a standard message, for some bizarre reason, all calendar data has been removed from the message, yet the item has been added to my calendar. Any thoughts?

I'm having problems with iTunes being unable to sync calendars with my iPhone.

In order to eliminate or incriminate iTunes interaction with Outlook I'd like to capture a trace of the COM (I assume) interactions between iTunes and the Outlook calendar APIs.

Is there any way to do this?

When I pull up the Month view of outlook calendar it doesn't show all of the things I have scheduled.

for instance, I have something at 2pm on April 30 and I don't see that unless I pull up the day and the detail of it. On the month view it's just a white square with no indication there's something scheduled. Other days if I have something all day it shows. Or maybe morning.

What setting do I need to tinker with?


A:Outlook 2010 Calendar Month View Not Showing Things

I see some items not others. I don't think it's a lost PST file. If I open the day, I see the entries. I don't have many entries, but it would be nice to see them all in the month view. For Instance on May 7th, I see Teacher appreciation week (a week long whole day entry) but not a 9am webinar and a 2pm presentation although they show if I open the day view. May 8th I have the date bold in my little thumbnail calendar so I know there's something there; in the month view nothing, in the day view I see an activity scheduled for 9am.

It's crazy. I would like to see something in the month view to show me what's coming up.

When Outlook calendar invitations are sent to certain recipients, they receive a plain text email as opposed to an actual iCal file. I have been doing my research on this, but have yet to find an answer. In order to narrow down the problem, I did a tightly controlled experiment:

I have Outlook configured to access email from several different POP3 servers, with all mail being directed to the same PST file. The first POP3 server is on my personal domain - I have a Linux-based VPS where the site is manage. The second POP3 server is a GoDaddy server.

Sent via my personal domain:
I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation. I then created a second event in my Calendar and invited myself (GoDaddy domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is plain text.

Sent via the GoDaddy domain:
I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation. I then created a second event in my Calendar and invited myself (GoDaddy domain).

In summary, the only instance that failed was when I sent the invite via my personal dom... Read more

I left out one, potentially important bit of info: Outbound emails from my server are routed through MandraillApp. Some further testing seems to suggest that MandraillApp is the culprit. Has anyone else seen this behavior? If so, any suggestions for resolving the problem?
