Could somebody please help me with the following:
The company works with external sub-contractors
For each subcontractor I created a local user (fe. email@example.com), in order to visualize its calendar or, more correctly, my scheduled requests for its services.
To schedule a new job, I add/create an appointment to that calendar.
Now, the problem:
I would like to send that appointment request to the subcontractor external email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I tried forwarding the mail from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This works when joe is not the organizer of the appointment.
For example, for a 2man job I would be the organizer and ask joe@local for assistance. Then joe@local receives a request email that is forwarded to the external address.
For a single man job where joe is the sole participant, no mail is sent and hence no forward.
I tried declaring joe as a resource (a little demeaning I know), but then joe cannot be sole participant of a appointment. Also the external email address poses a problem.
Any suggestions are welcome. If there's a better way, please educate me
