When I receive a Task Request in Outlook 2010 it is only partially visable and I don't have the Accept or Decline buttons.

This is what the message looks like:
Received task message
The person sending this message can send tasks to one person ok, but myself and another guy get messages that look like the above.  We are all using Outlook 2010.  The three of them are all on the same hosted exchange and I am on a different hosted exchange.

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Darrin

Outlook 2010.
From OWA you can't assign a task to someone else.

The customer figured out the problem on their own.  Before getting the hosted exchange they had regular pop accounts.  When we setup the hosted exchange accounts we changed the pop accounts to forward to the hosted exchange accounts.  This causes the failure.  I belive the failure is casued by the task being sent to one address, but it being opened with another.
