2 Outlook questions



I have 2 Outlook questions that I annot find the answers to and I hope
somebody can help.

1. A way to prevent meetings from being "tentatively" added to calendars.
(Prefer that they only appear after they are accepted.) Currently, a meeting
request is added to the user's calendar before the users has accepted the

2. A way to prevent calendar delegates from receiving information on the
delegator's calendar. For example, if somebody sends a meeting request to the
manager, both the manager and the delegates get an email for the meeting
request. However, I only want the manager who gets the request not the
I know this is against the point of having a delegate but we have users who
does not want to receive the email because they do not accept meeting for the
manager. They only open the manager's calendar folder from time to time to
check on availability.

Thanks for the help

1) Turn off the sniffer. Tools | Options | E-mail Options | Tracking Options | Process requests and responses on arrival

2) Remove the delegate. (Getting a copy of the meeting request is what being a delegate means.) If that person needs to see the manager's Calendar, grant them permission on the Calendar folder's Properties dialog.
