Problem with Meeting request

Guys need your Help

Below is the scenario

User A Sends a Metting request which is a reccurence every tuesday of the month selecting Room mailbox 1.

User B sends a meeting request on tuesday selecting the same room mailbox 1.

when we check the Room mailbox calender we can only view User B Meeting request.

This has been a problem for us after we migrated from Exchange2003 to Exchange2007

Hi all

After migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 we have the following problem with meeting requests send by users:
-user A sends a meeting request with reminder set to none
-user B accept the meeting request and now the reminder is set to 15 minutes

When i disable the Feature Calendar Settings -> Automate Processing -> Enable Calender Attendant -> "Mark new meeting requests als Tentative" on the mailbox from user B, the reminder is set to none.
This can not be the solution, because the "Mark new meeting requests als Tentative" is necessary for us.

As client we tested Outlook 2003 and 2007, problem ist the same in both versions.

Any other ideas to solve this problem?

Best regards

The issue I describe here is related to the Microsoft outlook email client. I am sorry that I have posted here.

One of a laptop user in my company has two POP3 email accounts configured in his outlook. Both of them are company ids. The laptop he uses is not part of the domain.

When he sends a meeting request from the default account, it is successful. But on the other case, i mean when he sends from non-default account, immediately it bounces back from the server with SMTP error #5.7.1 (Permission problem).

If I make the other account as the default account, he is able to send the meeting request successfully. That is, meeting requests are not going through from the non-default account.

Thanks.

Hi All!
I am at wits end with this problem:
We have an Exchange 2003 SP2 box (Server 2003) with 20 clients running Office 2000/Outlook 2000. These clients can send new meeting requests/replies with no problem. Recently we began migration to Office 2007/Outlook 2007, and we now have a problem where the 2007 clients create a meeting and send the request but the request cannot be opened. We are getting the "unknow error" message when trying to open/delete the request. If I log in to these 2007 accounts using OWA (thereby bypassing the 2007 install) the meetings are sent and can be opened just fine. The new machines are clean OS/offfice installs, and I have tried deleting profiles, deleting and restoring exchange mailboxes, removing and reinstalling Office 2007... nothing works. Is there something I need to configure that I am missing? I did have an issue with permissions on this Server for a different application; could it be that permissions are screwed up for the exchange directory for meeting info?
Hope someone can point me in the right direction,
Andy

I am having a few problems within Exchange 2003 regarding meeting requests.
This problem is becoming more frequent now and I am struggling to find a
cause or an answer.

When meeting requests are set up, sometimes not all recipients will recieve
the request. Also if a meeting is updated not all recipients will recieve
the update. More recently I have been informed that some people are
accepting requests but they are not appearing in the list of attendee's.

I have look through as many of the log files as I could and I have not found
any errors.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

i need your help. I have strange problem with meeting requests send to our
exchange organization. When someone external sends a meeting request to our
user everything shows fine. Meeting request show accept and declined
buttons, message body, everything shows fine. User can interact with that
message. But when user in our organization accepts or declined or cancel
such meeting request from originator not in our exchange organization, than
the originator of  meeting request do not get acceptance mail , or declined
mail or canceled mail,  no he gets a empty message with (no subject) as subject.
Meeting requests in our organization works fine. Also when our users sends
meeting requests its working fine. The only problem is, when the originator
of meeting request is not in our exchange organization.
Have I something wrong in my setup, or what ?
Thanks for your answers.

Hi All
Customer sent out a meeting request to several persons. Some were flagged
required attendee some as optional.

Problem: all invited persons received the invitation as a required
attendee even those who were flagged as optional.

Any idea on how something like that can happen?
Thanks

I know this is a strange problem but just wondered if anybody had any
ideas as to why this should happen.

A user received a meeting request. They accepted it.

The email stayed in their inbox rather than moving to their Deleted
Items and did not show up in their calendar. When they clicked the
appointment in their inbox it showed as accepted at the top of the
email.

A few hours later they went back into the email which said that it had
NOT been accepted. They then had to re-accept this - the second time
it went into his deleted items and showed up in his calendar.

Seems strange doesn't it?

I have sent a user a Meeting Request and that user has Accepted it and
clicked on Send Responce Now. When I then go into my outlook calender, it
show up as the required attendee under Attendance is shown up as None. This
is after the e-mail responce has been received, opened and then closed. This
only happens with 2 users as I have tried test's with other people and all
seems fine. Please help.

Hello,

I have problem with meeting update in Outlook 2007 SP2. When i create a meeting request and add in a field "To" any mail group - everything fine. If i update this meeting then some users from this group will be added also like optional(Cc). How i can fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Hey there,

We're running Exchange 5.5 SP4 with Outlook 2000 SR-1 clients and seem to be having a problem with meeting requests.

When the requester sends out a meeting request, the request goes into their calendar, but does not appear in the requestee's calendar.
It appear to come into their Inbox as a regular email message, and the "accept/decline" right-clickable options are not there.

I'm sure this used to work. Not sure if there's an option somewhere that was disabled/enabled or what.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi,

We moved from Exchange 2003 (on a SBS server) to an Exchange 2007 Std about 2 month ago and since, we experience some problems with meeting request receive from other companies.

Some of our users receive quite often meeting request from person of other companies and as they accept the meeting, they get a Delivery Status Notification (delay) first, then a failure. Normal mail sent to those persons are correctly delivered, problem occure only when replying to a meeting request.
I checked our Exchange 2007 config and I must have miss something as it seems everything is OK.

The delay message (e-mail address are intentionnaly changed)
De : postmaster@OtherDomain.com [mailto:postmaster@OtherDomain.com] Envoyé : mercredi 12 mars 2008 22:13 À : prvs=cdb/0957d145a1@OurDomain.com Objet : Delivery Status Notification (Delay)   This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.   THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.   YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.   Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed.          Mr.X@OtherDomain.com

And the failure (this was for another request, don't look at the date):
De : postmaster@OtherDomain.com [mailto:postmaster@OtherDomain.com] Envoyé : samedi 8 mars 2008 8:56 À : prvs=cdb/09514c401b@OurDomain.com Objet : Delivery Status Notification (Failure)   This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.   Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to connect successfully to the destination mail server.          Mr.Y@OtherDomain.com  

Any hint on this is realy welcom!

Thanks,
nico

Hi all,

  I have a coexist environment with 2007 and 2003. 

userA's and userB's mailbox is on the 2007 box
userC's mailbox is on the 2003 box.

if userA sends a meeting request to userB and userB forwards it to userC, userB get a 5.7.1 failure...

however

if userA sends a meeting request to userB and userC (not a forward) it goes through fine.

and also

if userA sends a meeting request to userC and userC forwards the request to userB it goes through fine.

So we have a problem with meeting requests being forwarded from the 2007 box to the 2003 box. No idea why. Any ideas?

I have problems with meeting requests I receiv in my Inbox. Outlook 2003 does
not recognize it as something that belongs in the Calendar and does not put
it there as a "tentative" entry in my Calendar.

After I have opened the meeting request, then it is put into my Calendar as
"tentative".

Where is this feature controlled?
I cannot find it any where in the Tools - Options menues.
My Office 2007 was very recently installed, but it did not work before the
installation either...

I have a number of rules defined that moves some mails into subfolders.
However, there is no Calender message that is moved.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thomas!

using cached exchange mode with outlook 2003, several users recently have
been having problems synchronising their offline files with exchange (many
messages in the 'sync issues' folder). The culprit is usually a meeting
request which, when deleted allows Outlook to then sync properly. it needs to
be permanently deleted otherwise it causes issues in the deleted items folder
and calendar.
have managed to remove sync issues by emptying the relevant folder (usually
inbox) to an archive, deleting anything that wouldn't move (the items causing
sync problems usually) then re-importing the information
is there a bug-fix for this ?

Hey all, not sure if anyone has seen this.

When sending a meeting request, on the receiving end it should promp to
accept, decline, etc.

When I try to send a meeting request, the receiver does not get those
options. They receive the email in the following format:

when..
where..
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

thats exactly what is included in the email.

Instead of the buttons it will show a squigly line and stars.

It looks as though it's on my end because b/c all recipients receive the
same thing.

The receivers are running Outlook 2003.

I was running outlook 2002. I upgraded to Outlook 2003 thinking it would
solve the issue but it didn't.

I recently upgraded to Outlook 2003 SP2 with all of the updates, same result.

I tried changing the sending format to rich text (it was html by default),
same result.

If I send a meeting request to myself, it is viewable perfectly with the
buttons...

When I try to receive meeting requests, it doesen't display the buttons in
the body of the text as well, it has the request attached with a .ics
extension which it shouldn't.

So it looks as though i'm having issues sending and receiving meeting
requests. Outgoing mail is currently set to html format.

The last little bit to this...I have Outlook 2003 but the rest of my Office
suite is 2002, would this cause any problems? I only upgraded Outlook to 2003

Any ideas?

Thank You

Hi,

I have a problem with one of the users on our network.

When she attempts to open Meeting request e-mails in Outlook 2003, it
is as if it trying to download something from the Exchange server, as
the message list is constantly refreshing. At this stage, she cannot
select anything Outlook, and the only way she can get out of it is to
right-hand click on the Outlook icon in the system tray, and select
"cancel server request", the message opens in the preview pane.

Solutions I have tried already include -

Updating Outlook to service pack 3 using the Office update.
Creating a Windows new profile, by renaming her old profile in
Documents and Settings and the getting her to log on again.
Disabling all the Add-ins in Outlook.
Running Outlook in Safe Mode.

Having tried the above and them failing, does someone have any ideas I
can try next ?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi All

I have a user who cannot accept meeting requests in Outlook 2007 with SP1
installed. Whenever she does a message appears saying.

"the function cannot be performed because the message has been changed"

This only happens when she first tries to accept the meeting request, if she
closes the request and opens it again she can accept them. I'm at a loss as
to what the problem is i have tried clearing the forms cache, deleting the
forms cache .dat file suggested for the problem with Outloo 2003 and set the
space that outlook uses to cache forms to 0, all to no avail.

Does anyone have any suggestions of possible fixes i'm starting to lose hair
over it.

Thanks

I have what looks like a small problem on the outside, but could develop into a real nightmare if not resolved...

Here it is, I am running a E2K SP2 (Mixed Mode)/ Outlook 98 (Clients). When a Meeting Request is sent out to users everything is fine, where the problem comes is that if a Meeting Attendee (Not the Originator) forwards that Meeting Request to another Internal User or an External Address the request looks like it came from the Originator not the Person who is forwarding it. Is there a way to stop this from happening???

Please Advise if anyone else has run across this problem.

Hello,

I came accross a wierd issue with meeting requests and the fact that the tracking doesn't update when sending meeting requests to external folks outside our company. When they accept and send a response to the person who requested the meeting inside our company the tracking does not show the accepted response.

Its not accross the board for everyone certain people will get tracking updates on meetings and others will not and i tested with the same hotmail account to several users. Tracking will update when sending to internal users FYI.

Its not profile or office outlook releated becuase i sent requests from OWA and it wouldnt update the tracking tab still. We are currently using exchange 2007 with 2003 office. I am stumped and sure could use some guidance, as i have not been able to find a real good answer to my problem.

We have an Exchange 2003, running on win 2003. I have a strange problem. I
had two users (A & B) with the same last name. I deleted user A’s account,
since the person left. Now whenever someone sends a meeting request to user B
(still a valid user) they get message saying that person A is not a valid
user. Yes. Server returns a bounced message for user A. But the message
request was never sent to A. It is happening to more than one sender and only
seem to be happening with meeting requests.

Here is the error:
“User A” on 9/15/2005 10:40 AM
The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this
message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient
directly to find out the correct address.

btw, person B does get the meeting requests as well and is able schedule the
meetings.
Any ideas?

Many thanks,
Sattar

We are using Outlook 2003 and are having issues with Meeting Request. So of
our users have reported a problem when they create a meeting notice and send
it out everything works fine. Later they will go into the meeting notice to
verify the attendees and some of the invitees are listed more than once. Why
is this happening and how can it be corrected?

In researching this issue, I found an unanswered question in another forum
that describes my problem exactly. Actually, this is more of an annoyance
than a problem. The meeting requests go to all the recipients and the
responses all go back to the requestor. The annoyance is that the responder
gets an NDR after responding to the request. The NDR is a No Mailbox Exists
message about a former employee that has long since been removed from
Exchange and Active Directory. The former employee was a delegate to the
requestor's mailbox/calendar.

Server - Exchange 2003
Workstations using Outllook 2003 or Outlook 2007

Outlook meeting request
I have a user(A) who is facing this problem
1. User (A) sends a meeting request to user (B)
2. User (B) gets the meeting request and
accepts it
3. User (A) gets a response as accepted
4. User (B) gets an Undeliverable email saying
The following recipients cannot be reached
and lists User (C)
5. User (C) was working with User (A) and left
the company 5 years ago
6. User (c) profile does not exists on the
exchange
7. User (A) has no delegates added on her
profile
8. when ever User (A) sends a meeting requests
she recv the same msg and calls from the users
she send saying they recv this msg

Any idea how to get this sorted.
Thanks
