I can see the current events when I Invite Attendees (using the published ClanedarID under Google Calendar settings as the email address). However, when I email the invite to attendees the email fails to get to the secondary calendar. Invites are sucessfully sent to the Primary Calendar if i use that as a 'Resource'.

NSLOOKUP fails to resolve group.calendar.google.com (calendar.google.com resolves OK) I have hidden some info with Xes. Current Config: Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 (20081105) Lightning 0.9 Provider for Google Calendar 0.5.1 Using the Private XML link to access the calendars and supplying username and pasword when asked. If I add the Secondary Calendar directly to Lightning I can post OK to the Public and Private XML links. But this is not the way a resource calendar is supposed to be used - or is it? I could just use the Primary calendar but I will not be able to get the invites auto accepted. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Add the Google Calender as a contact using the published CalendarID (e.g. Jubilee Hall: firstname.lastname@example.org ) 2.Create New event and invite 'Jubilee Hall' (Calendar availability is listed as expected) 3.Ensure 'Send attendees invitations via email' is ticked. 4.Click 'Close and Save' Actual Results: Event is not listed in the secondary google calendar and eventually an email failure message is received as detailed Expected Results: An automatically accepted event in the secondary (resource) google calendar Workaround: using a primary calendar works but the event is not auto accepted. However, this does mean that a separate google mail account is required for each resource one is trying to publish! I did not know whether to log this as a Thunderbird, Lighting, of Provider for Google Calendar problem. I descided on Thunder bird as it is email related (I think). I have left the severity as Normal rather that Minor as I don't think that the workaround is easy.

The email you get is probably rather a temporary problem with DNS and not related to the client software at all, rather the network topology.
