I am currently using Thunderbird, I can successfully send meeting requests to all types of calendars however when someone sends me a meeting request and I want to either accept or decline the meeting error number: MODIFICATION_Failed appears. I have also installed Lightning 0.9 but the same error is repeating

Any ideas? Inge

not a dupe, he wanted them automatically added to calendar. OP on this question can't even accept requests. –  John T Oct 6 '09 at 15:46
