    Responses to Meeting Requests (Outlook 2000)

    Hey,

    I have an assistant sending out meeting requests for her boss. The trick is the responses are going to the boss' email. Anyway we can get the responses to go to the assistant's Inbox?

    Thanks

    I've never sent a meeting request, but in an ordinary e-mail, View>Options lets you set a reply-to address. Anything similar you can find?

    No there isn't an option to determine who the "reply to" person is; that was my initial reaction.

    Thank you to those of you who were working on this with me. The answer is, the boss' account has the assistant as a delegate. When she sets up the delegates portion of Outlook she needs to check the "Meeting Requests and Replies go to the delegate" box.

    All meeting requests sent to the boss and replies to her meeting requests will go to the assigned delegate.

    Thank you.

    It may be because I don't fully delegate, but I can't find that setting in OL 2000; can you provide us the Menu hierarchy to get to this and any related settings? is it done on the DelegatOR client settings or the Delegatee client settings?

    Re: Responses to Meeting Requests (Outlook 2000)

    I have Outlook 2000; Can't imagine it is terribly different on XP...but maybe, just maybe.

    When you set up someone to be your delegate (i.e. you are the delegatOR and they are the delegatEE) you can select to have them receive both the answers to the meeting requests you send out AND the meeting requests/invitations you receive.

    To do this from the DelegatORs PC:

    Tools - Options - Delegates Tab
    Select someone to be your Meeting Request delegatEE
    With them highlight, click to place a check-mark in the "Send meeting requests and responses only to my delegates, not to me" checkbox.
    Apply, OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Meredith, very helpful. I also have 2000 at work, and the reason I didn't see the "Send meeting requests and responses only to my delegates, not to me" checkbox is that it's dimmed (grayed out) on my machine; apparently my company in it's wisdom has globally disabled that function! Grrr.

    John,

    Thanks for questioning. Mine is grayed out, too, until I make the delegatEE an editor on my calendar. Then the option becomes available.
