Why is the Outlook Sniffer not operating in Outlook 2010?

We just upgraded the whole office (130-140 users or so) to Office 2010 from Office 2000/2003, and now we're finding that the Outlook Sniffer is no longer operating.  Users who receive meeting requests are not seeing those meetings tentatively in their calendars until they open the meeting request.  This functionality worked fine before the upgrade (we were specifically using Word/Powerpoint/Excel 2000 and Outlook 2003).  We are using Exchange 2003 in conjunction with Outlook 2010.

How can we fix this issue?

Mine is configured as follows (and is operating as described above; meeting requests do not show up in my calendar tentatively until I at least preview the meeting request):

Hmm... look at this.

Specifically the property: AddNewRequestsTentatively

Maybe check first with Get-CalendarProcessing to see what you are configured for at the server level.

We're on Exchange Server 2003, though... Those articles refer to Exchange 2010.

Sorry, I saw that initially then got myself twisted around on versions.
Not really sure. There seems to be lots of craziness when dealing with Meeting requests.
I saw something about creating a rule, but I didn't think that was a very good solution for a whole group.
