Using To Do's With iCal and Yahoo
Authored by: scotty321 on Jan 24, '11 08:40:24AM

Very strange. I have confirmed this to be true.

Yahoo allows "read access" and "editing access" of to-do's when you are connecting to it via a CalDAV client like iCal and BusyCal, but it does NOT allow you to create new to-do's from CalDAV clients.

(And people wonder why Yahoo has fallen beneath the curve of giant Google! I'm not a fan of Google in the slightest, but they do seem to have nailed the basics of email and calendaring... although I've heard about other bugs in Google's calendar, such as improperly handling floating events.)

I think the best calendar syncing option at this point is MobileMe. MobileMe has significantly improved since they switched to CalDAV (i.e. it's finally 100% reliable!), and you can even use the iOS app BusyToDo to keep your to-do's in sync between your iPhone and your Mac.

Might be worth paying the annual MobileMe fee, which you can get for a discounted price on amazon.com ($65 instead of $99) here: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B003TLJUJE/sw0b-20
