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: SMTP:[email protected]) 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. Feb 6, 2012 at 15:42
  • @PirateEric As I've mentioned the user does has Contribute permissions. That's a weird part..
