cPanel docs state they have only tested the Calender and Contacts on Apple®-distributed products.
How to Set Up Calendars and Contacts - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

Some blog posts indicate they have successfully published calenders to the web for Outlook clients, and that other Outlook clients can all SEE the data.....but no one can EDIT anything.

I think the issue is that MS activesync is not implemented. There seems to be a Feature request open for it at: ActiveSync with Horde 5.x

Hello,

The previous post is correct. Outlook does not support CalDAV and CardDAV (the protocols we use for Calendars and Contacts) by default. You could search for terms such as "Outlook CalDAV" or "Android CalDAV" on a search engine to see third-party applications that might allow you to utilize this functionality.

Thank you.

Hello,

Could you let us know the specific error message you receive, and verify which plugin you are using?

Thank you.

This feature request has been locked with no updates for quite a while, is Activesync with Horde still on the planned list, any updates? ActiveSync with Horde 5.x
Hello,

There's no update to report at this time. We'll update the feature request as soon as any new information is available, but in the meantime I encourage anyone seeking this feature to vote for the request.

Thank you.

Have you tried SolCalendar?
I tried this App by Namecheap's recommendation
How to configure Caldav/Carddav on Android (Private Email: A
however it seems to be not working with CPanel's CalDAV implementation despite the fact that the App reports to be syncing with no problems.

Has anybody else noticed the same behaviour?

Hi all, is this the case for Windows 10 native Mail app? I mean can you add the Direct URLs for Calendars given in cPanel to setup calender in Windows 10 mail? I have set up email there very easily but calendar doesn't come up! Any hints?

Three years after the original post and I'm facing that same problem. I need to have my Calendar feature in CPanel work along with Outlook for Windows (in my PC) and also at an Android phone, just like Gmail does. I wonder if there are any new solutions other than the ones already posted here 2 years ago.

Unfortunately I don't have any additional details to add to this as the Apple products are still the best tested for these tools on our side. Outlook seems to still require a plugin or additional software in order to perform the caldav features, which is why we don't evaluate the tools on those systems.
