Description davidblunkett 2013-04-15 14:42:22 UTC
I set up korganizer to sync with my google calendar which works great except...

korganizer is duplicating all the email reminders that the google calendar is issuing.  In fact it seems to be sending more reminders than the google calendar.  Since I want to be able to use korganizer on a number of machines simultaneously the number of reminders will grow to a ridiculous amount.  I'd like koganizer to stop duplicating these reminders - I personally can't see why anyone would want this behaviour but I can see that it might 9strictly speaking) be correct.

So... I'm not sure if this is a bug, misunderstanding or feature request but it should be possible to turn email reminders off or somehow manage their behaviour (turn to task bar notifications) for calendars that you sync to.  Preferably on a per calendar basis.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Set up to sync with an external calendar and get all notifications duplicated - makes sense for some notifications (popups?) but not for email ones.
Actual Results:  
duplication of email notifications 

Expected Results:  
should be able to control / disable the duplication of email notifications

I've tried to disable this problem by removing any email addresses from korganizer so it cannot send emails but this just leads to numerous error messages which is almost as annoying as the duplicate emails it keeps sending.

Frustrated by the continual popups complaining about not having an address set I set the address to the "dummy transport" and this has had some bad side effects in that this has cause all my outgoing email transports in kmail to be deleted. This cannot be intended behaviour!
