we currently are encountering a problem with the Kerio Connect calendar, which gets massively spammed via *.ics files attached to mails, as the events automatically get added to the calendar.

The event subject directly indicates that it is spam and the details of the calendar event contain a malicious link obfuscated using an URL shortener.

So, is there a way to tell Kerio Connect to not automatically add those events? Furthermore, no matter if I accept, decline or even delete the event, the sender receives an information and knows that this mail address is actively being used which should (or must) definately be avoided.

I did not find anything inside the Kerio Connect admin web interface. Maybe there is a way to fix this issue by editing the Kerio Connect config files or another solution?

Thanks in advance!

This message documents something that is still true:

1. Events from spam messages get added to the calendar
2. It is not possible to delete the event without the spammer being notified

Anyone know of a way to delete the event without notifying the organizer?

Haven't tested this but have you considered:
1. adding the domain of the spam sender as an alias to your domain,
2. add the recepients mail address as an alias to the administrator / spam etc. mailbox

Might work.
