I've SP Calendar with enabled incoming email. If Security policy set to

Accept e-mail messages based on list permissions

and user who sends a meeting request has Contribute permissions - it doesn't work.

If Security policy set to

Accept e-mail messages from any sender

it does work.

Also if you have an Exchange account (which has the Email field as following: and specify it - it also doesn't work. However I do have the same calender where the last approach work.

Can you clarify what is missed? I just need to create an event based on the permissions.

Have you verified the said user(s) have contribute permissions to the calendar? It sounds like they don't if it works ofr all senders and not based on permissions. It's a dumb question, but we need to ask. – Eric Alexander Feb 6 '12 at 15:42
@PirateEric As I've mentioned the user does has Contribute permissions. That's a weird part.. – AlexSSE Feb 6 '12 at 15:50
duh, sorry about that. I read it 3 times and totally missed it 3 times. 4th time must be the charm. – Eric Alexander Feb 6 '12 at 16:15
