Forwarding of Meeting Requests to External addresses - how do I stop it?
Posted on 2007-11-14
Today I noticed something strange that happened with a forwarded meeting request.
We use Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003. An employee here (mycompany.com) has a fiancee that works at (othercompany.com). An meeting request went out to all employees for the company Christmas party. The employee forwarded the meeting request to his fiancee at her othercompany.com e-mail (they also use Outlook with Exchange).
The fiancee accepted the meeting request, and a response was sent to the meeting organizer. Fiancee was added to the meeting as an antendee, even though she was not invited by the meeting organizer.
My question is, is there a way to:
a) prevent meeting requests from being forwarded as meeting requests and instead have the converted to regular e-mails?
b) prevent people who receive forwarded meeting requests from responding if they were not on the original invite list?
