A co-worker and I are using using Outlook 2010 as a client and Google Apps as the mail infrastructure (with a company domain), with Google Apps Sync as the interface.  We are both using a Lenovo T500 running Windows 7 Home Premium.

I have a situation where the Accept/Decline buttons appear at the receiving end when inviting the co-worker in Outlook to a meeting.  However, when I assign a task to the same person in Outlook, the Accept/Decline buttons don't appear at the receiving end.

In Outlook 2010's 'Mail Options', the 'Compose e-mail' format is set to HTML.  The addressee's Outlook Contact has the 'Internet format' set to ''Let Outlook decide the best sending format'.

Any sugestions are appreciated, CLG

That feature is not supported:

"What's not available...  

... Assigning tasks to others. If you assign a task to someone in Outlook, the assignment doesn't sync with Google Apps. As a result, the task appears to be owned by that person in your local Outlook client, but the other person won't see the assignment in their account. "

Hi TBone2K,  

After much hunting around, I came across this same information a few days ago.
