After upgrading to 2007 whenever I send a meeting invite to someone I get this reminder message.

Outlook has detected the following:
-The location is not specified

Do you want to send the meeting anyway?

 I hardly ever specify locations in my invites so Id rather not get this reminder every time.

Actaully Sorry,
The above is good to have but wont answer your question.

These are just reminders that these fields are not completed.
It also does this if:
The Subject is not completed
The Location is not specified
Or if there are any errors in the time that the meeting has been set (Say if it was set in the past)

I dont beleive that this can be disabled as it has several functions.
If you were able to turn this off, you would not get warnings for any of the other issues you might want to know about.

Interestingly enough other users with identical setup don't have the same problem. Any other suggestions?

Really?

So they can create an appointment.
Invite a person
Not set an Location
Not complete the subject line
and select Send

And they dont get this warning msg?

have you gone to one of their machines and tried this yourself?

If you can you log onto one of their PCs as yourself, open outlook and try this using your Outlook profile and see if you have this problem as well?

Keep in mind that if they are creating the appointment in their calendar and they are the only one in the appointment, they will not get this msg if they leave the subject or location blank.
