    I have tried a few times in the past without luck to get this working properly. I basically want to sync all my calendars where I can enter an event on any of my devices and have them show up on all calendars.

    I want this to work for:

    iCal (iMac and MacBook Air)

    I use MobileMe and it works fine for the first three, but when I add Yahoo into the mix events get duplicated (I sometimes had 4 of the same event on my mac) and a lot of events didn't sync (I think I failed to see events added on Yahoo on MobileMe web calendar.

    Has anybody gotten this to work successfully? If I could sync Yahoo successfully with any of the other three devices, I feel like MobileMe can take over and get it to work.

    I just tried to set it up again (last time was a few months ago) and see there is a default add for Yahoo in iCal so perhaps this is a newer version of iCal that might work. I never tried it before Snow Leopard.

    I'll post back here if I have more questions.

    So I got everything set up and it seems that it is working fine for Yahoo -> iCal.

    However my Yahoo Calendar won't update and display my newly created iCal events unless I click the "Reload Calendar" button on Yahoo. Is there any way to have it automatically Reload the subscribed calendar every X minutes? Simply refreshing the page or navigating away and back doesn't reload the calendar.

    Iis there a reason you have to use Yahoo? Can't you just go to the mobileme site?

    I use Yahoo mail and am on Yahoo's site all the time. It would be convenient if I could see the activities through Yahoo. My wife also uses Yahoo so I want to sync everything up so we are never far away from seeing all of our appointments.

    I can't believe that Yahoo allows you to subscribe to calendars but doesn't ever automatically update the subscribed calendars.
