    Automatically accepting responses (Outlook 2000)

    Many people in my company are pulling their hair out over the following Outlook issue. When the send out a meeting response, most people accept or decline, but don't send a response. This is probably out of a desire not to flood the meeting organizer's inbox and probably a side affect of just switching from Netscape Calendar where e-mails were just e-mails and not the appointment or response itself.

    The problem: If they don't send a response, the meeting organizer does not know whether they accepted or declined.

    If we go back and tell everyone to be sure and send a response, then the meeting organizers will be flooded with e-mail responses, each one of which they will have to accept.

    Question: Is there a way to set up a rule to do whatever needs doing for to this response for it to show up on the meeting for the organizer as a response and then delete the response?

    Thanks for the help!!

    Do these options help?

    Re: Automatically accepting responses (Outlook 2000)

    That is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!!

    Now just one followup:

    Instead of processing responses "upon arrival" as the option says, it seems delayed. In my test, it took exactly 4 1/2 minutes for the responses to be processed after they arrived in my Inbox.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!!

    P.S. Just wanted to gripe. It would been a whole lot easier if MS had put these options related to Calendar in a more logical place, such as O maybe the "Calendar" options?!!

    None at all - but 4 1/2 minutes isn't too bad.

    You have to understand that as far as Outlook is concerned, everything is a mail message.
