I am having problems with internal Meeting requests being sent to Junk folders in outlook. Multiple people compaining. I am running Exch 2003 and 2010. Any ideas or countermeasures I might try other than asking each user to go into Junk folder and add the messages to safe senders list?

    Set the junk e-mail otpion Low on the client side.

    ( Tools-->Option---->Prefereneces----->Jurn e-mail--->Low).

    If still mail goes to junk folder then change Junk e-mail option Low to No Automatic filtering.

    Is this happening to users whose mailbox is on Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2010 ?
    Who is sending meetings ?
    What is the version of Outlook ?

    Symantec for Exchange..

    I've noticed its happened more on Exch 2010, but ex 2003 is a concern too. I have been advised of the following:

    It’s Outlook in Cached Mode who is moving some mail into Junk folder as it has integrated Antispam filter.
    Two options here:
    1)      Ideally:
    a.      Create mail-enabled or mailbox-enabled AD account for each application server (or one for all of them – technically here it does not matter) sending mail to Exchange.
    b.      Configure these app servers to use authenticated, not anonymous, SMTP connection to the Exchange. In this case, all their mail will be marked by Exchange itself as internal and Outlook will not even try to check it against its spam logic and will never move into Junk folder;
    2)      If you can’t configure all or some of your app servers to use authenticated SMTP and they still have to use anonymous SMTP sessions, then, create a transport rule:
    a.      Condition: “when the From address matches text patterns” with the pattern equals (without quotation marks) “$”
    b.      Action: “set the spam confidence level to value” with the value -1 (minus one);
    Where -1 means – internal message. So with this rule you will mark these messages as internal and Outlook will not touch then…

    I have not tested this yet..
