Don't put meeting invites on calendar automatically in Outlook 2007

When someone sends you a meeting invitation, Outlook 2007 immediately puts it on your calendar as a tentative appointment.  This happens automatically, before you accept it.

Is there a way to suppress this behavior, so that meetings don't appear on your calendar until you've accepted them?

    Well it sure looked like it would work, but I just tested it and the meeting still showed up on my calendar even though the invitation was routed to a folder other than the Inbox.

    Any other ideas?

    I found the solution elsewhere.  The trick was to un-check Process requests and responses on arrival under Tools|Options|E-Mail Options|Tracking Options.

    However, your answer did point me in the right direction regarding the sniffer process.
