Help Outlook 2011 for Mac: Calendar Sniffer auto-processing does it exists?

We switched from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.

Since entourage didn't support 2010 we switched our users to outlook 2011. Back when they were in entourage (and exchange 2003) meeting requests would show up in their calendar automatically as tentative without them having to accept/decline a meeting.. I see no option to do this in outlook 2011. (On the IPhone and IPAD it works correctly)

I have a number of mac users up in arms about not being able to see meetings in their calendar without having to click accept on every meeting request that's coming in.

From what I'm reading it seems like outlook 2011 for the mac no longer does this but then I see other people saying that this is not a function of the client but the server itself.

    It's not a function of the server. It's a client function. In outlook 2010 for windows you het the option to Auto Accept Meeting Invites as Tentative.
    But this is not an option that's in outlook for mac 2011.
    If this is a feature you’d like to see in future versions of Office for Mac, be sure to send your feedback by clicking “Help” > “Send Feedback…”.

    Guess they'll bring it in an update in the near future.
