Using Task Assignments in Outlook 2007 without Exchange

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?

Thank you.
