Zimbra: How to delete read-only events from a calendar

Today I needed to delete all the events from a calendar in Zimbra. It seemed straight-forward:

  • open the calendar
  • switch to the list view
  • set appropriate start date and end dates
  • select all
  • hit “Delete”

Unfortunately, Zimbra refused to proceed, because some of the messages were “Read-only”. I didn’t find any way to find out which messages are “Read-only”, let alone to change that.

However, I found a workaround which might be useful if you are in the same situation:

  • Create a new temporary calendar
  • Move all the events from the main calendar to the temporary one
  • Delete the temporary calendar
