Using Task Assignments in Outlook 2007 without Exchange
Posted on 2011-09-28
Is it possible to use task assignments in Outlook 2007without exchange? We can use calendar appointments, send appointments to others, they can accept / deny, send updates and all that using the calendar without exchange.
When we try to send a task assignment, the recipient simply receives the task details in text format in the body of an email and an attachment called Untitled Attachment.dat.
If the Accept/Deny functions work for calendar when inviting an attendee without having Exchange, shouldn't the same work when assigning tasks, even without exchange?
Is there a way to make it work, or does it require exchange...and if so why does the Calendar make use of the Accept/Deny buttons but not Tasks?
