Hi There

When I send an outlook 2003 meeting request to email addresses in the company they are able to Accept/Decline/Tentative the request as usual.

When email addresses are external to the company, they received the meeting request as an attachment. They open the attachment in their version of outlook and the Accept/Decline/Tentative buttons are greyed out

Can someone help

Resolution was: Make sure that if you are using an external mail scanning and filtering comapny such as Messahe labs or ISNL's SPheriQ, they are not treating your meeting requests as html e-mails and attaching automatic disclaimer to it.
