Sending out custom Outlook Accepted invitational messages

Hi Guys,

Is there away in Outlook 2003 to be able to send an automatic response when a person accepts an Invite for a meeting/calendar.

I have been given a template that I would like to send out to people who accept a calendar invitation in Outlook 2003.

Any ideas?

Hi, ambri5h.

I might be able to do it with a bit of scripting.  Assuming that I can, there's one potential problem.  Outlook 2003 and earlier contains a security feature that prevents a script from sending a message without the user's explicit permission.  That security feature cannot be turned off, but there are ways to work around it.  Here are those ways:

1.  Sign the code.  Here's a link to instructions on doing that: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa155754(office.10).aspx
2.  Use ClickYes (http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/), a small utility that'll click the Yes button for you.  It creates a security hole though, since a virus could start sending messages and ClickYes would click the Yes button for it too.  
3.  Use Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com), a COM library that enables code to safely bypass Outlook security.

If you want to pursue this as a solution, then I'll test to see that a script can do this.  If it can, then I will post the script and instructions for using it.
