Posted on 2007-07-26

In Outlook 2003 is it possible to re-send a meeting invitation to those invitees who did not response to the first invitation sent?

Also, if on creation of the appointment I invite 5 people and send them an invitation. The next day I want to invite a 6th person and send this person only an invitation. Is this possible?

    Open the meeting you generated in Outlook and select Actions from the Menu.

    Here are many options to handle Outlook Meetings.

    I would suggest selecting "New Message to Attendees" and send an email to all asking those who have not yet responded to the meeting request to please do so"

    Also here you can invite add or remove attendees.  This will allow you to send an update to all so that everyone can see who has been added.  However, if you only want to the new person to see the email, then you can select Forward.  Please let us know if you have more questions.

    Thanks ltlbearand3.
    So you are saying that the answer is NO to both my questions but you have Workarounds for the both question?

    The answer to the first questions is No.  But the workaround is to send a message to all attendees.

    The Answer to the second questions is Yes.
    1.      Open the Meeting request
    2.      Choose Actions from the menu
    3.      Select Forward 
    4.      Add the person you want to add to the meeting
    5.      Click Send

    On this second question, you may want to think about instead choosing add or remove attendees from the Actions menu.  This would send an update email to all who are invited.  Sometimes this is a courtesy so that all can see who has been added to the meeting.  However, sometimes this is seen as a hassle since it does resend the meeting to all.  It depends on the environment in which you are using Outlook.
