Re: iTIP REPLY question
Could someone please provide clarification in the following areas:
1. Can both an email address and a CAP uri be specified for the
organizer so that if rights haven't been granted for opening a
connection then the CUA can fall back to the email address? If so how
is it done? If not, and both a CAP uri and an email address are
available - which should be preferred when creating an iTIP request?
2. It's not clear to me which pre-defined rights are checked when
depositing an iTIP reply object. I.E. Is CARID:UPDATEPARTSTATUS VCAR
checked? Does this right cover both VEVENT and VFREEBUSY components?
Or does each store need to implement additional VCARs such as a
hypothetical CARID:UPDATEBUSYTIMEINFO. Do I need to create a VCAR to
handle the email address AND a VCAR to handle the CAP uri?
3. A CUA that is ready to process an iTIP reply that was delivered via
iMIP is expected to check the VCARs in the same manner as if it was
transported via CAP, correct?

Nether, it is created in CUA2.

If the ORGANIZER property in the REQUEST is a CAP uri, then CUA2
the REPLY into CS1. If the ORGANIZER property is a mailto uri,
then CUA2 e-mail's the REPLY to that e-mail address.

They must give it to you in advance. If they have not given you the
rights to deposit a REPLY into their CS, then they broke iTIP - ignore
and throw away the REQUEST.
It is possible that they want you to connect anonymously.

If the ORGANIZER property is a CAP uri, then open a connection
to that uri.

No query needed from CUA1 into CS2. It is a push model.
