I have an iCal server running, with a group calendar set up through a wiki site for all of my users. All users trying to access the calendar are members of the group. Adding, removing, modifying events (even through delegated accounts) is working fine. Email invites, however, will not work.

When using iCal (v4.0.4 on 10.6.6 client), I cannot anyone to an event. I can add the email address, but it gets a little yellow exclamation point by it, the email doesn't go out and I get some errors in the console.

I don't really know where to look on the server for pertinent settings or logs. I'm using Kerberos v5 for auth (working fine) and the connection is over SSL on 8443. If it helps, I have set up a SRV record for iCal server pointing to my domain/port also.

the following messages show up in Console.app:
