Outlook 2002 versus 2000-500 points

Im using office xp(2002) as my email client and my email server is a suse email.SO im using an Imap account
When I send an invitation request from my 2002 outlook to a another user in the netwoork but that uses outlook 2000 than it doesnt work and i get not the right format for accepting or declining the invitation. Otherwise when sending an invitation from a outlook2000 client to another client(might be 2000 or 2000) it works fine.
An idea about this problem. I really need this fast so thats why im assigning 500 points

That would be because the SUSE server doesn't understand the appointment.  I am guessing it works fine from OL2002 to OL2000 through the ES.  It "speals the language."
Here is one user's experience with moving from Win to Linux - http://www.trusoft.za.net/Linux/win_to_lin.html
I have no specific suggestions.  Take a look at http://www.google.com/search?q=suse+outlook+invitation&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&start=10&sa=N

Well you might be right but when I send an appointment from outlook2002 to a outlook 2002 that work both with suse it works fine,.Looks more like a client problem than a suse server problem.

I give u the points cos nobody else could give an answer, but i figured it out myself.
Try sending as a vCalendar appointment.  I believe Outlook 2002 is defaulted to send appointments as iCalendar format.  While you are creating the appointment, goto Tools and uncheck "Send as iCalendar"
