How to I change outlook not allowing meeting acceptance?

At work, I use Outlook 2003 with Exchange. At home, I use Outlook 2007 on my
PC. I have different e-mail accounts. However, in my contacts, I have an
entry for myself with both my home and work e-mail. I use it to send to
friends as a vcard etc. When I setup time for personal items on my work
calendar, I usually invite myself by including my home e-mail in the invitee
list. This is to setup an appointment on my home calendar as well. However,
when I send the invite to my home e-mail address and Outlook2007, I get a
message "As meeting organizer, you do not need to respond to the meeting" and
it does not display the accept button.

This would not be a problem if it would show up on my calendar at home, but
it doesn't. Without the Accept button, I am unable to add to my home
calendar with 2007 and send the acceptance notification back to my work
address so that its confirmed and updated.

I can understand that, but with many of the contact management software to
keep your contacts in sync on multiple machines (as I do), people will end up
with the same situation I am having. All their machines will have the @work
and @home contact record and Outlook on the other machine will think the
invitiation is from the organizer.

I think Microsoft should have an option in Calendaring to override the
contact lookup when it thinks your the meeting organizer when receiving an
invite. Nice feature, but it needs to be a little more flexible or override
when its wrong.
