    Inviting Attendees (Outlook 2000/Outlook XP)

    I frequently make appointments for different members of the family and record the time, date, place, etc as an appointment in Outlook. Then I use the button INVITE ATTENDEES to notify my husband, children, etc. about the appointment.

    I use Outlook 2000 and my daughter uses Outlook XP. When she receives the e-mail with the appointment, it is an e-mail message, not an appointment that she can accept or reject. Does she need to change some settings? If so, what?

    I don't usually have trouble with appointment with colleagues who are using the same version and on the same server.

    Thanks for your help.

    be sure you are using RTF format when you send them - right click on the names and set it to Rich Text format.

    When I right click on the names the pop-up box doesn't really say that it's rtf. When I look at the send options, the box "I want to specify the format of the messages to this recipient." is not checked.

    If I check it the only options are: Plain text, Include both Plain Text and HTML, and HTML.

    When I try to save the appointment, the default is .rtf file so I'm assuming that it is in RTF format.
