Meeting Requests Don't Show Up in Google Apps Mail

We use Google Apps for both our corporate mail and calendaring. I've observed that while I am occasionally sent meeting requests -- both from people inside our company (and hence on Google Apps as well) and outside of it -- I have never seen even one actual meeting request mail. Instead, I just happen to notice that a meeting has magically appeared on my calendar.

In addition, it appears that the meetings haven't actually been accepted. If I set "Automatically add invitations to my calendar" to "Yes, but don't send event reminders unless I have responded "Yes" or "Maybe"" then they disappear from my calendar. But the meeting request is nowhere to be found regardless of the setting.

I'm not set up as a resource (like a conference room) so there's no auto-accept option to disable. Very perplexing.

I access my mail through web, Outlook and iPhone and can't find any Outlook or iPhone settings that might have caused this. Or have I missed something?

Open your calendar settings in google.
Select the "Calendars" tab.
Select your calendar's notifications. You have an option to be notified via email or SMS or both or none. I guess no notification is selected atm.

Thanks, but doesn't notifications refer to being notified of an impending meeting (just before it's supposed to happen)? The problem I have is with meeting requests not showing up in my inbox.
