We've been migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. In following the steps to replicate free busy time, offline address book, etc. Last night I removed the replication between the two servers and only had the new Exchange server listed. This AM when staff is sending calendar invites OUTSIDE our network, the Accept, Tentative and Decline buttons are not longer on the invite, inside network it shows those buttons, it looks like a regular email. I have since place back the replication between the two servers, but not sure if this is root cause of issue.

Any thoughts?

Hi Nick, do you by any chance use Message Labs or the person reporting the problem?  I have heard of this issue with Exchange 2007 and Message Labs....

The only way around it at the moment is for the MessageLabs customer to turn off inbound banners.

You may check there first.

Although I don't have or use MessageLabs, you hinted at the right direction, among the many things weve done is to install GFI Mail Essentials as a secondary spam filter, Barracuda being the first. Anyways after reading your post, I disabled the GFI services and viola, accept, tent and decline buttons back.

Did a quick search on GFI KB, found article on issue, added script to a config file in the GFI directory and there ya go, all working normal again.

What perterbs me most is if they have a KB article on this, and have a simple fix as adding 1 line of code in the config file, the question must be asked, WHY NOT RELEASE A NEW BUILD!!!!!!!!

Then it hit me, if software was perfect, then there would be no such thing as maintenance agreements.

Can someone say American Car Companies, they have to make cars that fall apart, this is to keep the economy up and have service and repair shops open... I guess software followed something that isn't known too much, but works like a charm...
