-Mark new meeting requests as tentative
This allows Exchange to go ahead and add the meeting request into the recipient's calendar, but marks it as 'tentative'. This is especially useful if, like my boss, people send meeting requests for meetings that take place within the next few minutes. That way, if shows up in your calendar, without you having to formally 'accept' it.

-Process meeting requests and responses originating outside the exchange organization.
This simply allows outside Exchange systems (like outside agencies you may work with) to send meeting requests.

What does Tentative mean in that context ?

I know tentative means and attempt, but speaking in the context of calendars when it s marked "tentative" what s the meaning behind it?

-Process meeting requests and responses originating outside the exchange organization.
I believe outside user are by default allowed to send meeting request.
