When I receive a meeting request it is automatically entered in my calendar as a tentative appointment.  I am not selecting tentative, accept or decline.  I am simply reading the message and closing it.  Why is this happening?

Thank you.

Any appointment requests like this are in a "tentative" state by default until you actually accept or deny them.

I have been using Outlook and Schedule+ for some time and never have I had this happen to me.  If I am reading an email (meeting request) my options are to accept, decline or tentative.  If I do not choose any of the options and simply read and close the message I cant understand why it is placing in my calendar as tentative.  So... Zoplax's answer "Any appointment requests like this are in a "tentative" state by default until you actually accept or deny them" doesn't really answer my question.  No offense of course.  Maybe he/she misunderstood or I didn't make myself clear.

I should've just said that it places the appointment in my calendar; I didn't actually see the status word "tentative" for the appointment.  Sorry for speaking too soon about that.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

But why does it enter it the calendar?  Is this new for 2000?  I know with 97 and 98 it didn't place an appointment in my calendar if I was just reading a request.  Thanks.

This is a feature with exchange many users do not like.  I agree it can make life confusing when you have appointments popping up on your calendar without your previous knowledge.  However, this is a default in Outlook with no chance for change.
