    Prevent external meeting request being processed (2002SP3)

    I am being plagued by an external person who every so often sends me an email containing a meeting request, which appears to go into my calendar before I even reply Decline to it. I have my Options -> Calendar Options -> Advanced Options -> Resource Scheduling "Automatically accept meeting requests and process cancellations" box UNticked.

    Is there any way (short of deleting the email without replying to it) that I can prevent having to reply to the meeting request back to the sender? Alternatively, is it possible to restrict (by individual recipient, even!) the sending and receiving of meeting requests only to people on your local domain? Is there any connection with Free/Busy options -> Internet Free/Busy -> Publish at my Location?

    Thanks!

    John,

    Make sure that Options | Preferences | E-mail Options | Tracking Options | "Process requests and responses on arrival" is not checked. Note: that is the path for Outlook 2007 and may be slightly different for 2002.

    Thanks, Joe - that option was ticked, so I have now unticked it, and will see whether that deals with the problem!

    Just contact your 'external friend' and get youself invited to another 'useful' meeting. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
