    Remove 'updated:' from meeting updates (OL2k/SP3)

    Is there an easy way to automatically (or at least periodically) remove the "Updated:" prefix to accepted meeting updates? I find it a fairly useless prefix and would rather have it removed.

    You could code the ItemSend event in the ThisOutlook Session Module to strip "Updated: " from the beginning of the Subject line of every outgoing message if you wish. Something like, untested:

    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim strSubject As String
    Const strUp As String = "Updated: "
    With Item
    strSubject = .Subject
    If InStr(1, Left(strSubject, 9), strUp, vbTextCompare) Then _
    .Subject = Replace(strSubject, strUp, "", 1, 1)
    End With
    End Sub

    Thanks for the reply, John. Sorry it took so long to get back here (proxy server problems)

    I ended up going a different route; I have a script that I use to extract calendar items from Outlook and put them into the open-source iCal format, which another (desktop calendar) software uses to show the month's events.. I simply updated that script to strip out the "Updated:" prefix as well as a few other tweaks, and it's working great.

    And it doesn't matter if I updated the meeting or if it was an updated meeting request coming in...

    thanks,
