Outlook 2000. I'm getting appointment requests in code rather than as a message where I can accpt the appointment. How do I fix it? They come in an email like this:

Return-Path: <blahblah@blah.com>
Received: from www3.blah.com (blah.com [204.138.155.2])
      by www.blah.com (8.12.3/8.12.3/Debian-6.6) with ESMTP id iAMGcFDA000589

Sounds like this was sent as a vcalendar.You should be able to save this and drag it to your calendar in Outlook. Typically, it appears as an icon or attachment in your email

The appointment should arrive in a format where I can just click accept to the appointment and it schedules the appointment for me and sends confirmation to the sender. I'm stumped, I can send the appointments to others just fine, but for some reason, when I receive them, I get the code instead of the appointment reply screen.

Animator, have someone send you a dummy appt. If you have Outlook, you should be able to accept. This one was sent as a vcalendar instead of an outlook meeting

This was an appointment. In fact, the sender sent the same appointment to the fellow beside me, who has the same laptop and Outlook and he received it in an appointment format and was able to accept it. I am the only one in the office who gets it like this. This is a new laptop and Office install so I thought it might be something with the settings.

Are you receiving this message through a POP3 acct instead of your exchange acct? Do you have multiple email accts on your pc?

I think that's your problem. Can receive normal meeting requests without exchange server. What am I missing here?

I have the same problem and your solution is not efficient for myself.

I use windows2000pro and outlook2003.
I'm popping my mail.

Could you indicate me the process to follow in order to repare my outlook.
All my colleagues ahave the same configuration and for them it works.
