Regarding how to prevent this in the future (question #3):
Log in to iCloud Calendar on a computer web browser
Authenticate if needed, then select the Calendar view
Select the Settings Gear icon ⚙ in the bottom left corner then hit Preferences...
Choose the option to receive calendar invitations by email instead of allowing the server to ...
I've had the exact same email. I've managed to get rid of it by doing the following:
Create a new iCloud calendar - I called mine junk
Move the spam invite to the new Junk calendar
Delete the newly created Junk calendar with the spam appointment in it - ensuring you select the 'Delete and Don't Notify' option in the Dialog box that appears.
This worked for ...
Hold down the alt key when you have the invitations list in view.
All the OK buttons will change to Ok All and all the Accept buttons will change to Accept All
Clicking the Ok All will clear the invitations with just the OK All.
The other buttons do not change annoyingly. As I would like Decline All
For Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.0:
Click on the "Calendars" button on the main window to show the sidebar of calendars.
Right mouse click on the calendar you want to ignore alerts from & choose "Get Info"
Check ON "Ignore Alerts" & click "OK"
Seems as thought you don't have to globally set this preference, you can now selectively choose which ...
The badge is notifying you of a Calendar notification. There are two cases which causes a badge:
You've been invited to an event.
An event on one of your shared calendars has been modified.
To clear the badge, open Calendar and click Notifications on the toolbar, then take action on the notification by selecting Accept/Decline/Maybe on an invitation or OK ...
As far as I am aware, invoking iCal's "refresh" function, under the Calendar menu should do all server side communication and updates.
Refresh will only update the calendar that hosts the event you currently have (or last had) selected. Refresh All will of course update all of your calendars. This should be a two-way process, and not just pulling down new ...
The iCalendar specification outlines what is required in an .ics file. In short, a simple .ics file looks like this:
SUMMARY:Bastille Day Party
I wrote an answer to a question about scheduling jobs that could solve a few of the issues for you. That was mostly for a one off time though versus ongoing.
If you have an ongoing job, like one that you would have scheduled through iCal, launchd will work nicely as well.
But if you want an outright replacement to something similar to what you did with ...
Apple made a 'report junk' button inside the calendar app on iCloud.com - when you report an invite it will be deleted across all synced calendars.
If you get an invitation that you think is junk or spam, you can
report it to iCloud.
Sign in to iCloud.com with your Apple ID, then click Calendar.
Open the event you want to report, then click ...
Select one of the calendars you want to merge
Make sure the filename matches the calender you've chosen above. The calendar will be exported to a .ics file
Choose File->Import...->Import and find the file you've just saved.
ical will ask you to which calendar it should add the events. Just select the another one of the ...
May have to kill and rebuild Calendar db:
Disable the Calendar service from your account in System Preferences → Internet Accounts
Remove the preferences/database files for Calendar:
rm -r ~/Library/Calendars/ ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iCal.plist
Re-enable the service.
For some reason, holding Option down with the keyboard shortcuts doesn't work (iCal just beeps at you), but you can change the keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences to include the Option key, then it'll work.
For example, I changed the shortcut for "Next" from Cmd-Right Arrow to Cmd-Option-Right Arrow and changed "Previous" to Cmd-Option-Left Arrow. Now ...
The great thing about a specific question is that it can be given a specific answer.
For example, the OP said: "There's an excellent Flickr app called SuprSetr which I'd like to automatically launch each morning at 3:55 am. How?"
Answer: Save the following as com.tjluoma.SuprSetr.plist (or whatever name you prefer, but it should end with .plist) and put it ...
Google calendars other than your default calendar are treated as delegated calendars by iCal. To get them to open in the main screen go to iCal > Preferences > Accounts, select your google account, click the tab for Delegation, then check the boxes next to the calendars you want to display in your main calendar window.
Now in the upper left hand corner of ...
For an Exchange account the only way I found to clear old invites out was to log into Outlook Web Access in my web browser and decline them without sending an email in there. Just go to the same dates specified in iCal for the invites and use the right click menu in the calendar tab to decline them.
To fix the problem, open Terminal and run (case sensitive):
This will shut down the Dock, and macOS will reopen the Dock immediately. When the Dock fetches the current state of notifications from Calendar, it will see zero pending notifications, and the badge will not show up.
I've had this issue a few times. MacOS has some sort of bug that ...
This doesn't currently seem possible using the accepted answer, at least if the inviter is in your contacts - it needs some sort of action from Apple. Please make a comment if there is extra privacy against invites from people not in your contacts (I thought it worth making an answer for this, given that information still seems to leak).
I tried the ...
You can enter events to specific calendars by holding down the + button
See here the entry from iCal help:
Add events to a calendar
You can add any kind of event to your iCal calendars. For example, you can add meetings, doctor appointments, and family activities.
You can’t add events to a calendar you subscribed to.
Click Add (...
You can disable all alerts, including email alerts, in ical via
iCal --> Preferences --> Advanced --> Turn off all alarms
If you need to have iCal display alarms on the mac, but simply not send the email, then you will need to turn to other software. Here are two applications that help tame iCal notifications:
The ics file has an organizer line. Per the rfc2445 standard, Section 3.5 - Security Considerations, non event owners are NOT allowed to modified the event... hence the reason for getting the CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation error.
Removing the entire ORGANIZER line from the ics file before importing fixes the issue.
Per the standard, if the event is ...
You can add one on iCloud or on your Mac. Just navigate to 'File' and create a 'New Calendar'.
And there, you'll be able to create a new calendar, and with 'Get Info' (right-click), you can choose your color.
The OS X Default calendar app preference is set in Calendar.app's preferences. If you select Fantastical there it should yield the behavior you are looking for.
Calendar.app > Calendar > Preferences > General > Default Calendar App
Entering the suite or apartment number on a separate line with a trailing comma, the address will display on the map as valid.
The Suite number can even be on the same line as the city and it will work but that just looks odd.
To add a new line use control+return
I've been extremely happy with iCloud syncing between MacBook Pro, iPhone, and iPad. Once set up it works flawlessly and reliably unlike MobileMe which I had for years and was useful but never totally trustworthy. iCloud really is a great solution for syncing address book and calendar and reminders. I'm also enjoying it's syncing of bookmarks and other ...
It's possible to do that with AppleScript.
If you're familiar with this technology, you should just browse iCal and Mail respective dictionary. If not, that's the occasion to become familiar ! This is a great place to start.
Here's a very basic script you could use (tested on Snow Leopard only, but should work fine on Lion as well) :

No. With iCloud and its supporting operating systems (iOS 5 and OS X 10.7.2), Apple has split the calendar stores on its online CalDAV servers to be either event-only, or task-only. Reminders sync to task-only calendars. See this Apple Support article for some details.
Deleting the task doesn't prompt you to delete all the other events?
Can't you just remove the mail reminder? Set it from Email to None.
iCal should then just prompt you if you want to update all the recurring tasks.
