Maximize the window, then filter on "calendar.reg" (minus the quotes)

Look for two entries for each calendar:


where XXXXX is a string associated with the SOGO internal calendar ID.

Dbl-click the .disabled entry to re-enable it.

IF the Calendar is supposed to be writeable, then do the same for the
readOnly entry.

The name for each Calendar will be between these two entries for each
one (see attached screenshot).

Note: Don't change the readOnly setting if the Calendar is, in fact,
supposed to be readOnly.

This has fixed it for me on multiple systems.
