I manage my iCloud calendar through the Calendar app on macOS. When I invite people to a meeting in my "Home" calendar they don't get a meeting invitation.

I'm wondering why. Does it have anything to do with the fact that I don't use Apple Mail as my mail client.


  • iCloud for calendar and contacts, I don't use iCloud for email
  • iCloud email is forwarded to my own domain
  • iCloud calendar loaded into Calendar app
  • Thunderbird to manage my non-iCloud email


I understand that the Calendar can't automagically use my Thunderbird email account to send out meeting invitations. However, I would expect it to use the iCloud email service to do so. I don't see any invitations in the iCloud "sent items", though.
