I use myname@gmail.com for my appleid username. If i wish to send an invite to my icloud calendar, how can i do so? I have myname@icloud.com and myname@me.com email addresses that are associated with my appleID (contactable at). I have tried sending the invite to these addresses but nothing has been received. Any ideas how i can send an invite to my icloud calendar?

Note this is a different question to "How to get calendar invites to come in as iCal and not as Google Calendar invites?" That asks how to get invites sent to a gmail address show up in ical without adding a gmail calendar. I am happy to send the invite to a non-gmail address.

  • Can you clarify how you're attempting to send calendar invites? I believe you should be able to accept ical invites sent to your apple email ([email protected]). I would test by using somebody else's device to create an ical event and then inviting [email protected]

  • I am sending the invite from an outlook exchange account at my ace of work.

  • My best guess is that you'll have to change your Apple ID to your icloud email to have this work properly. I personally just have my google calendar connected. Would also be interested in a more seamless solution.

I believe the solution is to force iCloud to send you invitations by email. Most people complain when they are inviting Gmail users from iCloud calendars, but I believe you're having the same problem.

  1. Log into iCloud.com
  2. Select Calendar
  3. Click Gear Icon, elect
  4. Select Advanced Tab
  5. Select radio button for "send email to [your primary iCloud email]"

iCloud tries to handle invites "behind the scenes" when the invited email address is connected to an iCloud account. Does this work for you?enter image description here
