We have an admin who users Outlook 2010 on a server with Exchange 2003 and she will occasionally forward meeting invitations.  When she does this, unhappliy, news of her forward and the names of the recipients of the forward are autosent to the meeting organizer whom she does not want to inform.  She also could not recall the meeting invitation to someone she did not want to send it to ultimately.  I am not sure that Outlook 2010 even supports the recall of meeting invitations, but it does for email messages.

Nope. Please dont forward the meeting-requests.

May Adrienne come, too?     If you receive an invitation for a meeting and believe someone else should also attend it, instead of forwarding the meeting request to that person, ask the meeting organizer to add that person to the attendee list, and then to send everyone an updated meeting request. This avoids suprising the organizer with an unexpected attendee and helps prevent lost meeting requests.
