Hi Reto,

I'm going to need more information.  I'm not really familiar with claws, 
does it support accessing calendars via caldav?  If so, what url are you 
using?  Cosmo has pretty good cladav support, so that comment about 
cosmo not adhering to the spec perplexes me.  Also, caldav never returns 
multiple resources in a single VCALENDAR object like Michael is 
suggesting.  Maybe it is expecting the webcal url instead, which does 
return all resources in a single VCALENDAR object.  This url is the same 
as the caldav url, but with "dav" replaced with "webcal".
