We have Outlook 2007 and use calendar sharing.

Some of the appointments in Outlook now open as an email as opposed to appointment. I aren't sure if this is user error.

The appointments which open as emails seem to all have the attached icon in the bottom corner

Can anyone help with this? Appointment

This is a known issue in 2007

All but 3 of the 31 PCs have SP2 installed. Calendar entries are made from every PC however. Would it be best to install SP2 on these clients and then check if the problem re-appears?

I would update the remaining PCs to SP2.
Of the appointments that Open like an Email.
If its no big deal, Delete them and Recreate them.

If recreating them, and the appointments are recurring, be sure to set an end date of no more than 1 year.
Any longer than that, or by setting no end date, opens the appointments up to corruption issues.
