When an outside client changes a weekly meeting in Outlook Calendar, my internal staff member receives a meeting request but it says
" This meeting request was updated after this message was sent. You should open a later update or open the item on the calendar."

He cannot respond to the update/request and there is no later update for him to respond to either.
He also says for this latest instance, his calendar item reflects an 11am start time while the the update is for 12pm.

I have researched this, and ive seen mentioned that an Exchange version mismatch, and sending/updating from a cellphone may have a hand in this, but no acceptable solutions other than deleting and recreating the meeting have been listed..

Unfortunately recreating the meeting is usually the only way to get it to behave.

Meetings over the internet break frequently, because they are an Exchange feature. The underlying information that allows Outlook to match it with the existing meeting can be changed when the message is turned in to an internet rather than internal message. Content can also get stripped from the message that Outlook needs by AV and anti-spam software.

Doing anything with meetings on a mobile device, particularly those from Apple is never a good idea. I have seen a single meeting from one device bring down an Exchange server in the past.

Simon.
