Outlook 2003 turn off meeting request response emails

Is there a way in Outlook 2003 when a person sends a meeting request and has it accepted by the recipient that it does not deliver a response to the sender’s inbox? I am looking for a setting vs. creating a rule in the rules wizard.

When you have the appointments screen open Click on "Actions" then untick Request-Reponses. Should do what you want.

It does, but it also will not display the acceptance in the meeting.

I wonder if setting up a rule to delete them as they arrive is the only way.

Hi, knada242.

So you want the receipt so the appointment will show that the recipient accepted/declined, you just don't want to see it in the Inbox.  Correct?  If so, then the only solution I know of is to use a bit of scripting.  Is that an option?  If so, then I can provide the script and instructions.

I am open to all options, please tell me more.

Yes, if the recipient accepts no email will show up in the senders inbox showing that it was accepted, but if they were to look at the calendar entry the would see the acceptance there. This would only apply to one user.

There is a setting that controls receipt processing.  That setting can be found be clicking Tools > Options > E-mail Options > Tracking Options.  Make sure the three boxes at the top of the dialog-box are all checked.  If they are checked and you still aren't getting the results you want, then the solution I have in mind is to create a script that monitors the inbox watching for these receipts.  When one arrives the script will process it and move the receipt to Deleted Items.  There's no way I know of to prevent the receipt from coming to the inbox and still get the status information.  Outlook has to receive and process the receipt to get the tracking information.  Even with a script the receipt will still come to the inbox, the script will simply process them as fast as they arrive.  However, the script can only work when Outlook is running.  If the user has a smartphone or accesses their mail using OWA, then they'll see the receipts.  The script can't process them until Outlook is launched.  OWA cannot run scripts.
