Hi all,

   Quick question.  My wife at home is sending me meeting (event) attendance requests through Outlook 2003 using a POP3 e-mail account (NO EXCHANGE).  When I receive the meeting requests they are coming through as just code, it does not appear in my mailbox in my outlook (using Exchange) as a valid calendar request.  Here is what it looks like...

Not sure why this request would come in like this and not as an event request.  Normally I would see the options to accept the invitation, decline or suggest a new time.  Anyone know why its not working?  I'm drawing a blank as to why this is not working...

Thanks
