How to avoid duplicate meetings?!

Is there any way at all that some command could be put into Outlook to alert
us of any clashes when we enter bookings for e.g. meeting room, conservatory,
main hall, etc?

At the moment we have to go through ALL entries for ALL days in a term to
make sure there are no clashes/ double-bookings. There must be an easier way

I set the default for all reminders to 1 day. However when I accept meeting
notices emailed to me, the reminder is always 15min. How to I get Outlook to
set them all at 1 day.?

I have a meeting appointment open in front of me.

On the status bar, underneath "Please respond", it says "1 instance of
this recurring appointment conflicts with another appointment on your
Calendar in the next 11 months.

How on earth am I supposed to find what the meeting conflicts with?
There's nothing in the help, no search function in the calendar view, no
information no help no clues and no options. I right-click on the status
bar but there's no pop-up menu. I've checked the "Tools" and "Actions"
menus, and there's nothing relating to conflicts there. I've searched the
help documentation, and there's absolutely no mention of how to find
conflicts. I clicked the "Calendar..." button, and it opens my calendar at
the first occurrence.

Are you seriously telling me I have to manually click on every tuesday
from now for the next eleven months and look to see if there's another
meeting there?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....

Hi, here is my situation, my plugin creates a folder in outlook, then I
want to avoid that any messages in that folder could be deleted... I try
with the ItemRemove event, but this event is called when the message is
already deleted... any suggestion ? Then the other thing is that I want that
the user neither could open the messages in that folder... I test the
NewInspector event from the Inspectors collection, but I don't know how can I
avoid the Inspector to be open. Or should I try something else ? I using C++
for this...

Thanx in advance...

I know how to auto-accept ALL meeting requests. How can I automatically
accept requests from ONLY one user? I tried setting up this rule:

Apply this rule after the message arrives
from "Company Calendar"
and which is a meeting invitation or update

but got stuck at "Select action(s)" as I did not see an action which would
automatically accept the request.

thank you for your advice,

Is there any way to change the meeting organizer of an appointment?

We have a shared calendar and people are sending in updates.

When the person managing the shared calendar receives and accepts an
update from someone else, we want the owner of the calendar to be shown
as the organizer, not the person sending in the new item. Otherwise a
new event is created, rather than updating the existing one.

So how can people contributing an event to the shared calendar indicate
that the meeting organizer is the owner of the event rather than
themselves. If they can do that then we think that the update issues
will resolve.

Environment: Outlook 2003 with exchange version 5.
