External Invites show sender with @local.host

Unread post by farmdwg » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:41 pm

Just installed the Calendar plug-in on my Synology DS214 (DSM 6.1.4) and when I go to invite an external via email, the email that is received shows a sender of username@local.host. I've gone into the user's settings and associated the calendar with a valid email address but no joy. What else am I missing?

Thanks!

I have this exact issue. Something's not right here.


I should also note, the first few accounts of Mail (not MailPlus) that I set up also were set up as name@localhost as well.

Same here! Could you find any solution?

When I create a new event, it shows me the correct e-mail. But as soon as I invite an external person via e-mail, it changes the creator from prename.name@domain.com to syno-username@local.host

Haven't been able to find an explanation for this...

quite similar issue with my thread talking about "domain joining" .. extension is "<domainname>.domain" and neither the FQDN of my join domain nor a "self choiced" domain name.

dunno if it will solve your pb but did you try to use a DynDNS to be able to give the synology another "domain name" ??

Looks like I am facing the same problem.
Trying to send invites with Thunderbird, the sender is listed as @local.host and the status only works when I invite people@local.host .

Has anyone found a solution yet?

Hello,

I have the same problem.

- When using the calendar web interface, invites are sent but people cannot respond to them because the organiser email is username@local.host in the .ics.
- I cannot configure Thunderbird/Lightning to send invites with the CalDAV synchronised synology calendar, probably because of this issue.

A patch would be much appreciated :-)

I contacted Synology support and got the reply that the issue is known and is a limitation of the current design of the calendar server. The dev department still needs to decide when and how they will approach it.
As a workaround, support suggested that I could use LDAP to log on with an LDAP user. The sender is then transferred correctly and no reject-mails or other error messages should appear.

I want to keep things simple for now, so I decided to give Synology a few months and hope they solve it somehow...

I have the same problem. I configured ldap and the organizer sending the invitation like:

ORGANIZER;PARTSTAT=ACCEPTED;ROLE=CHAIR:mailto:user@ldap.intern
ATTENDEE;RSVP=TRUE;PARTSTAT=NEEDS-ACTION;ROLE=REQ-PARTICIPANT;SENT-BY="mail
to:user@ldap.intern
Isn't it possible to simply add there the configured email address? How can people use the calendar with that limitation? How can I invite people and can not get a feedback?

I would really appreciate if synology could find a solution for that....

Well, that is disappointing... tried everything to no avail. Indeed it sends invites with horrid sender email address. Seems like Synology has some working to do on this problem. Only way to send invites is by sending them from the Calendar App on the Synology to other DSM users. I hoped Synology made a more serious platform for small businesses, back to Google or M$ I'm afraid...

I had the same issues and dislike the LDAP workaround. I implemented a different workaround that is cumbersome, too. I decided to install nextcloud (I guess owncloud will work, too) migrated both my address book an my calendars to nextcould. That does the job for the latter. In addition, it comes vCard 4.0 support for the address book.
Still disappointed that Synology does not take care of basic functionalities for a small business.
