I enabled this option in Outlook 2013 :
"Automatically accept meeting requests and remove canceled meetings"

But, when I send an appointment, in the Inbox, I must confirm the appointment.

Why?

I have à Exchange 2007 server with Outlook 2013.

Incoming meeting notifications will appear temporarily in your Mail Inbox and then Outlook will take over, auto-accept the meeting for you, send an acceptance notification back to the meeting organizer, and move the meeting notification from your Mail Inbox to your Sent Items folder. Meetings are only auto-accepted while Outlook is running.

============
Try to run the get-CalendarProcessing <mailbox_name> and check the automate processing


to make the mailbox autoaccept,
Set-CalendarProcessing <mailbox_name> -automateprocessing "AutoAccept"

to revert:
Set-CalendarProcessing <mailbox_name> -automateprocessing "AutoUpdate"

there is not.

the exchange 2007 command is called Get-MailboxCalendarSettings / Set-MailboxCalendarSettings


Try to run the get-MailboxCalendarSettings  <mailbox_name> and check the automate processing


to make the mailbox autoaccept,
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings <mailbox_name> -automateprocessing "AutoAccept"

to revert:
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings <mailbox_name> -automateprocessing "AutoUpdate"

I have this result :

[PS] C:\>Set-MailboxCalendarSettings zorma1 -automateprocessing "AutoAccept"
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings : AutoAccept can only be enabled on resource mailboxes.
At line:1 char:28
+ Set-MailboxCalendarSettings  <<<< zorma1 -automateprocessing "AutoAccept"

Is it normal that you can not do it on a user mailbox?

I remember i use Outlook 2010 in exchange 2007 and it works like charm (via outlook method)

okay, i have tested this on production environment
it is Exchange 2007 sp3 with outlook 2013.
when Outlook is open, the calendar will process automatically (within seconds you will get a response), and when the outlook is off, it will not process until you next open Outlook.

so definitely something wrong with your outlook 2013.
have you had all the patches and hotfixes installed?
