When I send event invitations through Google Calendar, there is one person listed that does not receive the invitation. All others in the list receive it.

He is on gMail too and has checked his spam folder. Other emails from me he receives ok. Is there some other setting he needs to change to receive the invitations?

does he has a google Calender account? – user221287 May 4 '12 at 10:59
I believe so. But regardless he should still receive the email with the calendar request in it. – sickgemini May 10 '12 at 23:34

This is likely because of he has explicitly denied sending notifications about events to him.

Guests who use Google Calendar will receive an invitation based on their own notification settings.

Quoted from: Invite guests to your event @ google support

So tell your mate to:

  1. Go to Settings -> Calendars
  2. Choose from the list of calendars the right calendar and click Reminders and notifications under the column notifications
  3. Make sure receiving email notifications are enabled for the appropriate actions on the Choose how you would like to be notified section.
