Outlook 2007 and sending on-behalf confirmations

Here's a challenge:

Our secretary makes bookings in the CEO's calendar and invites additional guests.
Now, the CEO is getting confirmation that the secretary made a booking on her behalf.

Is there any way to disable these confirmation sent to the CEO?
Everyone using Outlook 2007 and Exchange 2007.

Sending meeting requests on behalf of someone else is very similar to creating them in your own calendar.


Callout 1 Open abc’s calendar.
Callout 2 Select a block of time on abc’s calendar.
Callout 3 Schedule a meeting and send the request.
Easy, wasn't it?

Hi Mojahid,

Creating an event on abc's behalf is not the problem - that works fine.

The problem is that abc is getting confirmation that the event was created and that's the question - how to disable the confirmations send to abc's mailbox?

I feel the option to restrict meeting notification only to delegates is available from Outlook 2010 onwards. If you set this option, all notifications will be sent to delegate. Please refer the following article for more information.

You can create a rules to delete once its inbox,

Else you can create a rules to forward these types of emails to secretery email, once its in CEO's mailbox (You can also onfigure like, Once its sent, Delete from Inbox),

Hope this will helps.
