    hrmm, this issue seems to be with or without tls enabled.

    I currently have ours setup with zmtlsctl both previously was redirect but for attempting to add an internet calendar I've changed this to both.

    I have tried with webcal or http links and even inserting the username and password similar to how thunderbird has it setup and still cannot add the calendar to Outlook 2007.

    I've tried -

    webcal://usernameassword@hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar.ics
    webcal://usernameassword@hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar?fmt=ics
    webcal://hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar.ics
    webcal://hostname.com.au/home/username2/calendar?fmt=ics

    and all the above combinations with http and https without any luck.

    I know I could simply use the connector but I already have all our staff setup without it and would like to continue without it (older people simply don't like change).

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Default Outlook's Broken SSL Webcal.

    This seems correct,
    If your system uses mixed authentication, all auth happens over https by default, redirecting where needed.

    This means, that if you want to add a calendar to Outlook 2007, due to its https flaw, you have to change the Calendar's view method to public, removing the need for authentication

    I was able to (using mixed authentication) mount a shared calendar in outlook 2007 by following this method. (Though this is not secure!)
    And using the URL: http://server/home/username/Calendar.ics

    Thanks, and Good Luck

    I have Zimbra https calendars working in Outlook 2007. I had to manually import the Zimbra certificate, instead of using the IE 7 dialogs. IE 7 acts like it is installing the certificate, with the same dialogs as before. But the cert never shows up in the root store. I exported .cer version of the certificate, and used the Import function of the Certificates section of Internet Options to get it properly imported. Then, I was able to add the calendar using:
    webcal://server.domain.com:443/home/...n.com/Calendar OR
    http://server.domain.com:443/home/us...n.com/Calendar OR
    https://server.domain.com/home/user@domain.com/Calendar
    We are not using Mixed mode, but Redirect. However, the calendar is read-only, a..feature..of Outlook. I also had issues with Zimbra calendars in Lightning in TB, but found the "inverse" pre-release version of the add-on, which solved most of them.

    Sure. You can go to the https URL, login if necessary. It will bring up an Open/Save dialog. If you open in Outlook 2007, it will download it, not Subscribe to it.

    Default Any new progress on this issue

    I'm having this same issue and can't find any solution. Tried http, https, importing the server cert. Anyone found a solution in another forum?

    I may be mixing a few things up but I seem to recall that I had to enter the URL in IE, which would then invoke Outlook to handle the .ics subscription.

    (Bear in mind this was a couple years ago.)

    Basically as shown in option 1 here: Internet Calendar Subscriptions - Part 1 - search.subscribe.share in outlook 2007 - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

    And do note that it might use webcal: or http: so try both.
