Default Can you stop meeting requests going straight into your Calendar?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm having issues where meeting requests are sent to my blackberry via email. My blackberry then automatically puts them into the calendar (prior to me accepting or declining them). If i then chose to decline, the entry is removed.

This is causing conflicts with my Google sync account. The calendar sync comes up with a warning in red. Saying that it has detected another client has entered an entry into my calendar, and that the entry will not be synced.

Do you know if there is a way to either stop meeting requests going straight into the calendar, or a way to stop Google sync having a problem when they do?

If you're using Exchange/Outlook as your backend, the answer as far as I know is NO. Once you get an appointment e-mail, even if you don't open the e-mail, Exchange places it in your calendar regardless.

I know up to Exchange 2003 SP2 that was still the case. Don't know if they have changed it in 2007.

We have exchange 2007 here and they are not added permanently to your calendar they are tentative appointments. So if anyone is looking at your availability it will show that the time is tentative and can call and ask you.

Interesting, but do you still get a reminder for that appointment that you haven't accepted?

Yes and it serves as 2 purposes one to remind you that you haven't responded yes or no and the meetings about to start and two just in case it's a yes and you forgot to reply it's telling you it's about to start.

Caspan, I see your point and agree, however there are some users within my domain who hate the fact that it does that. They say that they should decide whether or not they go to a meeting and whether or not they be reminded and the fact that they ignored it, then the software should respect that. Its so funny hearing them tell me that they software does not respect their decision.

So I guess the answer is no then. The appointments will still be placed in your calendar even if you ignore them.

Yes and only because this is default behavior of Exchange 2007/2003 has nothing to do with BES its just mirroring the data from the Exchange server.
