Tentative Meeting Requests not appearing?


E

espedair

I have a repeat complaint from a senior PA in our organisation. This revolves
around outlook meetings. We use Outlook 2003 client and Exchange 2003 server.
The issue is that of the pa organising meeting requests which are for senior
manager or executives. These are only meetings and not appointments. We have
repeated examples where the meetings do not appear as tentative. Could
someone tell me exactly how this should work? I was under the impression that
the emails had to be opened for the meetings to appear as tentative but can
someone confirm?
Many thanks

provided the appointment remains in the inbox, outlook 'sniffs' for
appointments and adds them to the calendar as tentative. it usually happens
with seconds of getting the message but can take a little longer. If this
is not working for you, try restarting outlook with the cleansniff switch.
(See http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/commandlines.htm for help with
switches.)

See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA011276781033.aspx - sniffer
capability is about halfway down.

This can be disabled on exchange 2007 and 2010 but AFAIK, not on exchange
2003, so it should work for you.
