Option "Prefer client-side email scheduling" is unselectable
after switching to a new Mail-Provider, I am facing the following issue in Thunderbird 68.10.0:
I would like Thunderbird to send out the invitations of my appointments. But currently the CalDav-server itself is sending out the invitations instead and I cannot change this.
I have followed the descriptions in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-email-invitations-caldav-servers-configured
But when I reach the "edit calender" dialog, the checkbox "Prefer client-side email scheduling" is unselectable. See attached image.
In fact, with my previous Mail-provider, this option was selectable. For me it looks like there is something in the communication between Thunderbird and the CalDav-Server which tells Thunderbird, that this option is not available. But this is just a wild guess.
What can I do to make Thunderbird send out the invitations of my appointments?
Thanks a lot in advance!
have you asked your new provider if they support the option? My guess is they do not. Hence the option being disabled.Read this answer in context 👍 1

thanks a lot for your help. You are right:
That would be ok, if Horde would do it right. Unfortunately Horde has the annoying "feature" that Horde is sending out a notification to every(!) participant, if one of the participants (not necessarily the organizer) changes anything(!) on the appointment locally.
My solution: Use Nextcloud as CalDav-Server and forget about Horde.
Dear Matt, thanks a lot. You are right: They use Horde and Horde does insist on sending the mails itself. :-( Best, Christain
