How do I stop meeting requests from coming in as Email Text instead of Calendar Invitation
Posted on 2008-10-22
This is a little difficult to explain so please bare with me!. We use Exchange 2007 with all of the latest service packs. We have a mix of Outlook 2003 and 2007 users, also with all of the latest office Service Packs.
Whenever some of our employees send meeting requests out, they come in as an email instead of a meeting that I can Accept, Decline or mark Tentative. Hopefully this makes sense. What this essentially means is that I have to create the meeting myself on my calendar when I get the invite instead of
simply clicking Accept, Decline, etc.
This is happening with Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2003 users, Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007 users, Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2003 users and Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2007 users, so it's not version dependent.
Other users are fine, they can send me a meeting request and I get the correct format. This doesn't always happen. Sometimes, a meeting request will come in just fine, 5 minutes later another meeting request from the same user comes in as email text.
Is this making any sense? I hope so. At any rate, does anyone have any ideas what is going on?
Thanks a bunch.
