    You are doing it wrong, don't export and import an .ics, put it into a resource account and SHARE it to everyone, that way if you modify it later you don't have to do it again.

    Yes, i agree with you, BUT ...
    some of us have more than 6-7 calendar shared with other collegues, structures etc. It's not so usefull to have another calendar shared, Zimbra calendar will be a little crowded...
    So we preferes follow another way to send events.

    I'm confused then, because importing another calendar will likely result it yet another calendar anyway, unless you plan to overload that data into the default user calendar which might might make their calendar useless.

    Yes, exactly, i'd plan to load data in default user's calendar. I realize that this may cause some discomfort, but lighter than that of having too many calendars to check

    I'd look at zmmailbox with the pru option. If you run "zmmailbox help misc" you should see the usage for that. I haven't tried this but it looks to me like something like this might help:

    zmmailbox -z -m <account> pru /Calendar /path/to/your.ics

    You would probably need to do that in a loop for all your users. You might have to specify the url as well, but that should get you on the right path.
