If I set a meeting with 2 attendees who are some OpenERP users they receive 2 mails:

  • One at the meeting creation
  • A second when an invitation is validate

this validation create a new meeting with the same attendees and send email to them, again.

How to prevent this second email?


edit: I try this:

class calendar_attendee(osv.osv):
_name = 'calendar.attendee'
_inherit = 'calendar.attendee'

def _send_mail(self, cr, uid, ids, mail_to, email_from=tools.config.get('email_from', False), context=None):
    Send mail for event invitation to event attendees.
    @param email_from: email address for user sending the mail
    @return: True
    company = self.pool.get('res.users').browse(cr, uid, uid, context=context).company_id.name
    for att in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):
        sign = att.sent_by_uid and att.sent_by_uid.signature or ''
        sign = '<br>'.join(sign and sign.split('\n') or [])
        res_obj = att.ref
        if res_obj:
            att_infos = []
            sub = res_obj.name
            other_invitation_ids = self.search(cr, uid, [('ref', '=', res_obj._name + ',' + str(res_obj.id))])
            for att2 in self.browse(cr, uid, other_invitation_ids):
                att_infos.append(((att2.user_id and att2.user_id.name) or \
                             (att2.partner_id and att2.partner_id.name) or \
                                att2.email) + ' - Status: ' + att2.state.title())
            #dates and times are gonna be expressed in `tz` time (local timezone of the `uid`)
            tz = context.get('tz', pytz.timezone('UTC'))
            #res_obj.date and res_obj.date_deadline are in UTC in database so we use context_timestamp() to transform them in the `tz` timezone
            date_start = fields.datetime.context_timestamp(cr, uid, datetime.strptime(res_obj.date, tools.DEFAULT_SERVER_DATETIME_FORMAT), context=context)
            date_stop = False
            if res_obj.date_deadline:
                date_stop = fields.datetime.context_timestamp(cr, uid, datetime.strptime(res_obj.date_deadline, tools.DEFAULT_SERVER_DATETIME_FORMAT), context=context)
            body_vals = {'name': res_obj.name,

            att_obj.do_accept(cr, uid, new_attendees, context=context)
        return True

And it's working.

I found the solution by myself. See question edit for the code.
