Outlook Meeting sends to users as a Normal Message..

Outlook Meeting sends to users as a Normal Message..

Hey all,
For some reason on one of our systems, running Outlook 2010, there is an issue with sending a New Meeting.

I select the Calendar. From the menu, "New Meeting". The New meeting screen opens. I enter in the subject, body, and have three contacts listed in "TO". That's it, and I click Send.

My recipients received this as a standard message, for some bizarre reason, all calendar data has been removed from the message, yet the item has been added to calendar from the machine it was send from. Any thoughts?

Hi Chris - Actually we aren't on an Exchange server. Should I still post there?

That probably explains why it isn't working then.

We are not on an Exchange server and this function works for us on both 07 and 10 Outlook. Have you tried repairing Office or a reinstall/repair install?

Correct, it is a function of Outlook and not Exchange. It also works on all our other 07 and 10 machines...

I have tried a repair, thanks. Seems to still have the same issue. Any other possibility's, perhaps a fix in registry? Not sure.

RE: Outlook Meeting sends to users as a Normal Message..

What mail client and system are your recipients using?

I know there can be issues between Outlook and Notes depending on how a Notes user has their end configured.
You would see the same symptoms.

@ntinlin - It's a Windows 7 Pro laptop running Outlook 2010. I do have a separate software (MyPhoneExplorer) which runs to sync Notes from Outlook to Notes on an Android cell phone..

@DrB0b - Good find on the Cal Checker, didn't know one was out there. I will run that too.

The user is out of the office for the next two days so I may not have an opportunity to update this until next week.. Thanks again.
