Outlook acts like I am recurring meeting organizer even though I am NOT


C

Choda Boy

I am invited to many recurring meetings. For some reason I have yet to determine, on some of these recurring meetings, Outlook treats me as though I am the organizer ("Cancel Meeting", "Send Update", "Add or Remove Attendees") even though I did not schedule the meeting and the "Scheduling" tab shows the correct person as "Meeting Organizer" and me as "Required Attendee" like the others.

This is especially annoying when I am invited to a recurring meeting and want to change my availability WITHOUT canceling someone else's meeting.

Another problem is that updates to these meetings are not reflected on my calendar.

Help!

turn on logging and see if you can catch the cause.

We recommend not accepting appointments on devices - especially iphones.
They should be view only. They can use rules to autoaccept some meeting
and outlook to accept everything else.
See

for an autoaccept script.

Diane,

Does this suggest that we tell all our corporate iPhone users that you can
sync
your iPhone with Exchange *but* it might change the organizer of your
recurring
meetings?

I have been troubleshooting and searching for a resolution to this problem for
months. Users are very frustrated. There seems to be a large number of
organizations dealing with this, so I am sure Microsoft is aware of the
problem;
but I'm having trouble finding an acknowledgment, work-around or resolution.
Have you come across anything by chance?

Thank you.

Marty
