Google Accounts: Responding to calendar invites on behalf of other email addresses

This article was been published more than 6months ago. The information contained herein may be outdated.

Here’s the scenario: You have set up your main email address to forward to your GMail address. Whenever you get calendar invites, you are unable to accept them, because they have been sent to your main email address, and not your GMail address. If that sounds familiar, I have good news: this can be fixed, and the fix is fairly straightforward. Here’s what you do:

  1. Log on to your Google Account
  2. Go to Google Calendar
  3. Click the Gear icon and choose Settings
  4. Select the Calendars tab
  5. Click Reminders and Notifications next to your primary calendar
  6. Under Alternate email address, check the box next to “Allow me to respond to event invitations forwarded from these addresses. My attendance response will come from youraddress@gmail.com

That should do it.
