I am creating a meeting using Exchange, Outlook 2010.  I am receiving, via email,  notifications of who has accepted or declined the meeting.  I do not want to receive these emails, I only want it tracked on the tracking tab in the meeting itself.  If I turn off Request Responses, nothing will show up in the tracking tab.

How do I turn off the email notifications?

Hi, Wycliffe.

What youw ant isn't possible.  As you've already noted the tracking tab can't track without the receipt.  How could it?  The recipt tells it who accepted, declined etc.  If you want tracking, then you have to get the receipts.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I know you USED to be able to stop the email notifications, but it must have been overlooked in 2010.  I have created a rule that sends them to trash.

I didn't give an alternative because there is no alternative.  If you want the tracking information, then Outlook MUST receive a receipt.  How else can it know who accepted, declined, etc.?  In order to have that information there must be feedback from the recipient and that feedback is the receipt.  Think of it in non-computer terms.  You send out written invitations asking the recipients to come to a meeting.  You want to know who is going to attend but you don't want them to call or write back ant tell you that for the same reasons that you don't want the receipt in Outlook.  How are you going to know what the responses are?  The answer is that you can't.  If the recipients can't respond, then you can't know what their intentions are.  Ditto for Outlook.  I understand that you'd like that response to be invisible to you, that the real issue is that you don't want to see the receipt.  Unfortunately Outlook is not designed for that.  What you see in the tracking tab is derived from those receipts.  There is no other way to get that information in the tracking tab.
