Possible to undo declining a meeting invitation?

I am using Outlook 2003. Occasionally I decline a meeting invitation
in error. The invitation is then moved to Deleted Items. If I open
the invitation from my Deleted items folder and click on Accept, I get
an error message "You do not have sufficient permission to perform
this operation on this object." If I try to move the invitation back
to my Inbox (by dragging or by using File | Move to Folder), Outlook
just creates a new mail message with the meeting invitation attached.
Am I out of luck if I mistakenly decline an invitation?

Thanks.

I originally declined a meeting invitation, now I want to accept it. The
only copy I have is in my sent folder of the decline. How do I get it back
on my calendar and respond with an acceptance?

The head of my work team sends out regular invites for her "office hours,"
which I never need to attend. I attempted to set up a rule to auto-delete the
invites, but the appointments still show up on my calendar as tentative,
which is very annoying.

I know I can change my settings to avoid adding non-accepted meetings from
showing up on my calendar as tentative, but I don't want to do this because I
rely on this functionality for other meetings.

Is there a way to ensure that all meeting invites with a specific title are
declined and deleted when they arrive in my inbox?

Thanks for your help!

I (organizer) sent out a meeting invite to several attendees. One of the
attendees has lost or deleted the meeting invite. Therefore I need to send
just him the meeting invite again. I don't want to forward the invite, as I
want him to receive updates when the original meeting invite is updated. How
do I resend but just to him.

Is there a simple way to send a meeting invitation again but only to those
invitees whose Response status is None?

How do I add participants to a meeting invitation that was created by my
administrative assistant - i.e., I am not the meeting organizer.

Does anyone know how to put content into a meeting invite and make it private
from other attendees? An example is to include the Leader passcode into an
invite without making the information visible to all invited.

Hi all,

I am using Outlook 2003.

I have my email message window set to a certain size and placement on my screen, the way I like it. Every time I open an email message, the window is in exactly the same place, just how I set it.

HOWEVER, whenever I receive a meeting invitation, the window size and placement moves, and then when I go to open an email, the email window is now in the same place as the meeting invitation was. I then have to manually move the window back to the size and shape I had it before.

Does anyone know if there is a way to stop Outlook for doing this? There must be a way, but I haven't been able to figure out how.

Thanks,

Matt

After I accept a meeting invitation the e-mail goes away. Is there anyway to
keep the e-mail from being erased and kept in my Inbox for review?

We are using Outlook 2002. Is it possible for one of our employees to set up
their Outlook to automatically decline a meeting request when a conflict
exists and have Outlook send an automatic response stating the meeting was
declined due to a conflict? I see where we can automatically decline the
double booked meeting, but I can't find how to send the auto response
explaining it. Thanks for all you do here.

When I removed a few people from a meeting invitation then chose the option
to send it to those added or deleted, several people got the message that the
meeting was cancelled! THE MEETING WAS NOT CANCELLED! And the people who
got this message were ones supposed to come to the meeting and still listed
in the "To" block! I don't care for this at all!

Is there a way to decline a meeting notice but still leave it on the calendar
(without manually copying and pasting it back)?

Outlook 2003 SP3 + all updates
Exchange server 2003 SP2 + all updates

When our users send out a meeting invitation to others in the company, most
of the invites show up as a regular email instead of the form that allows
the users to accept/decline the meeting invitation. For one of the users, of
15 sent only 8 of them went through correctly. This seems to be a recent
issue, could a office update be causing this?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I am curious to hear suggestions about how to serve individuals who do not
want to be scheduled by the entire organization.

Specifically, they would like to auto-decline all direct meeting requests
and have an associate manage their calendar.

Is a 2nd "public" calendar the only option here? Or is there a way to
auto-decline all meeting invitations?

I have tried setting up a rule to send a response and delete the
invitations, but the sniffer grabs the message too quickly and the tentative
meeting remains in their schedule.

Please let me know if this needs further explaination to make sense...it is
a hard request for me to put into words.

Thanks for your time,
Chris

I am using Outlook 2007. When I get a meeting invite that has a file
attachment embedded in the Description text, the attachment cannot be
deleted. This is while the meeting invite is still in the Inbox as opposed
to being in the Calendar where it can be deleted. For embedded attachments
in Mail messages I can select "Edit Message" under the "Other Actions" button
and then delete, but this function does not exist in a meeting invite. How
is it done then?

When I decline a meeting request especially when I select 'edit before sending' outlook crashes.

How do I automatically accept a meeting invitation in Outlook?

Hello,

I am using Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003.

Is it possible to send out a meeting invitation so that it is
automatically accepted into the recepients calendar without any user
intervention?

I am thinking of doing this for meetings that are compulsory to attend
so that they are automatically placed into diaries.

Thanks in advance.

I scheduled a meeting. Everybody accepted it. THen due to some mistake I
cancelled it by mistake without sending an update. Now it is available on
everyone else's calendar but not on mine. And there is no way I can get it
back on my calendar. When I try to accept the same meeting that was forwarded
to me by my colleage, it says "As a meeting organizer you do not need to
accept the meeting" eventhough it is not showing on my calendar.

There should be some facility to un-cancel a meeting if the udpates have not
been sent out.
