+'''How do I configure Calendar Server to send email invitations?'''
 Calendar Server can send invitations to "external" users (i.e., those without an account on the server) via email, using the iCalendar Message-Based Interoperability Protocol (iMIP - http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2447 ).  If you create an event and add an attendee which has an email address but does not have a local account, the server will generate an email message with a icalendar attachment containing the event details and a request for response.  If the attendee uses an iMIP-compatible client to respond to the invitation, the server will parse the reply and update the organizer's copy of the event accordingly.

       * AddressPatterns = an array of regular expressions defining which email addresses to send iMIP messages to -- if an external attendee's email address does not match these patterns, no invitation will be sent to them.

+'''Troubleshooting iMIP'''
+{{{Mail gateway didn't find a token in message}}} -- Calendar Server uses "plus addressing" to encode a token into the reply-to address for email invitations.  That way, when a reply comes back, the token can be used to look up the appropriate organizer, attendee, and event to update.  This special tokenized email address is not only in the reply-to field, but also substituted for the organizer's email address within the embedded icalendar body attached to the invitation.  So iMIP-aware clients should direct the reply to the email address including the token.  If that token is missing, the iMIP reply is not processed.
