I'm using Davmail as my way of connecting to Exchange 2003 on my corporate network, however while others are having success. I am unable to set it up to work with iCal and Reminders because I receive the error that "iCal cannot connect to the server "localhost". I am able to connect to it during the setup process and it "sees" the calendar. I can also connect to localhost in Thunderbird w/ Lightning installed.

Any other ideas of what it could be. The console logs are reflecting some kind of time out, but I'm not sure. Thanks for your help in advance!

Nevermind, I figured this out with an experiment. In the Davmail settings I told it to only look back "1" day for the calendar instead of "90" and it worked. Although - it is still looking back 90 so it must be something else, but either way it is working now! :) – Atrus Sep 18 '12 at 16:17
