Outlook Automatically Accepting Meeting Requests

I have an Exchange 2010 infrastructure with Outlook 2010 clients.  Several of my users are complaining about Outlook not delivering meeting requests to the inbox, but automatically accepting the meeting request and placing it in the user's calendar.  All checkboxes at File -> Options -> Calendar -> Auto Accept/Decline... are unchecked.  As far as I can tell, the users have not turned on any options or rules to automatically accept meeting requests.  Has anyone ever heard of this phenomenon in an Exchange environment?  This is very odd, and appears to be at random.

Hi Marrj,

That does sound odd. Can you confirm by searching the deleted items folder to see if the meeting requests are there? Can you also confirm that the meetings are on the recipient calendar as "accepted" and not "tentative"?

 It sounds like user error to me

Invites are not in Deleted Items or Junk.

As you suspected, the meeting is in the calendar with a "tenative" status.  However, the user's still didn't receive the invite.  It just went automatically to the calendar.

Can you run Check Get-CalendarProcessing -id <the effected user> | FL and then check the value of AutoMateProcessing.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Hey Marrj,
Sorry to have dropped the ball, but it sounds like the user has changed the behavior of their calendar to auto accept/reject conflicts. Go to FIle> Options>Calendar and see if the option is selected near the bottom for Resource Scheduling
