Q: viewing other attnedees when planning a meeting in microsoft outlook


when i view shared calendars in outlook, i can see my co-workers appts

however, if i go to plan a meeting, and try to add other attendees, there
are no personal address books to choose from (i don't think we use
inter-office mail)

how can i view the free/busy time for my co-workers through the plan a
meeting option? (i can see their free/busy times if i just click on each day
of the calendar to see if they are busy that day but it's cumbersome)

i use thunderbird for my emails between co-workers (they use outlook)

thanks for your help

Most of my users are on Outlook 2003, but some are on Outlook 2007. When a 2007 user uses the scheduling assistant to try and set a meeting, the message appears No Information. No free/busy information could be retrieved.

Note: a 2003 user can see the other 2003 user's schedule.

Is this something that needs to be set at the Exchange level? How do I resolve?

Microsoft is planning to compel organizations to install updates to Windows 10 by a certain period of time.
Failure to do so will risk not getting future security updates to the operating system, in some cases. That's the scenario emerging for organizations adopting the so-called "current branch for business" (CBB) update model for Windows 10 that has been proposed by Microsoft.
Organizations adopting the CBB model will have "eight months" to apply Windows 10 updates. Should that period lapse without the update being applied, those organizations will not get future security updates for the OS. This eight-month deadline was mentioned by Helen Harmetz, a Microsoft senior product marketing manager, in a briefing for partners called " Staying Current with Windows."

A:Microsoft Planning Strict Update Requirements When Windows 10 Arrives

What rules would apply in the following scenarios: -

Scenario 1. A new computer is purchased but the OS was installed on the HDD more than 8 months prior to the purchase.

Scenario 2. More than 8 months after purchase a computer is reverted to a "factory state" using a standard process provided by the manufacturer.

In both the above instances there would be any number of updates that would have passed their 8-month "use by" date.

I've got a user that is trying to use the meeting scheduler in the calendar section of outlook.

Basically she wants to know the availability of other users based on their calendars on their workstations.

My guess is that this doesn't work because we are using pop/smtp email services, rather than running and exchange server.

Am I correct?

Hi everyone. I need a little help with how to use a function in outlook. I have a group of about 30 people who all have different schedules. I want to use Outlook 2007 to find when the best time to meet is. I have gone to the "Meeting Request" section of Outlook and I can see my schedule just fine ie when I am Busy or when I am free. My problem is that I don't know how to enter people?s names with their schedules so I can compare everyone?s schedule.

For some users (not certain if it is all users), their meeting cancellation notices are all marked urgent in importance.

The problem is almost none of the users want this setting. We use urgent emails for truly urgent events, and no one wants their urgent alarms going off for meeting cancellations.

I am running Outlook 2003 and Win XP Pro SP3. Both Outlook and Win are set up to adjust for daylight saving time.

The changeover from EST to DST today has changed the time for every meeting in my Outlook 2003 calendar for all dates starting today (Sunday, 08Mar'09). The time for every meeting that occurs today or in the future has been moved forward 1 hour. Any meeting series is correct for any instance before 08Mar'09 and incorrect for any instance on/after 08Mar'09.

I can fix the problem by unselecting the auto adjust for DST and manually changing the time.

It is my understanding that the actual time stored for all Outlook meetings is Zulu time and any conversion is done on the fly.

Any idea what is going on here?

Hey there,

On our exchange server we have a resource for our small conference room.

If anyone tries to schedule a meeting, while using the small conf room as a resource, as soon as you try to send the invitation Outlook freezes and holds onto 99% of the CPU.

This is from any computer.

BUT, here were also a couple meeting invitations successfully sent out earlier this morning, using the small conf room. But when I try to accept, Outlook hangs again.

Also, if I log into the Small conf room's own email account and try to accept the invitations through it's account directly, outlook hangs. AND from the small conf room's account, if I try to set up a meeting with itself as a resource, it hangs...

Setting up a meeting using any other resource works fine.

Any idea what the problem could be?


Thanks =)

This user travels a lot, and prefers to spend all his time in offline mode, working online is not an option as a solution. When working offline, if he goes to schedule a meeting, anybody that he selects comes up as No Information Available, expectedly. Well, he says that when working offline he used to be able to see this information, and that just recently he started receiving the No Info bars.

Is there any way to make Outlook gather this information when connected and working offline, or is his only option working online?

Our business recently upgraded to Outlook 2007. I have one user who, when scheduling a meeting, cannot see the attendees free/busy schedules. This is the only user of @300 affected. To date I have:
1)Run the /cleanfreebusy, /cleanreminders, /cleanprofile and every /clean....I can think of.
2)Uninstalled/reinstalled Office 2007.
3)Created a new email profile
4)Created a new user profile. With this, the user was able to see the free/busy times for a few days, but now it is back to square one - cannot see the attendees schedules.

There is no /cleanscheduleplus available in Outlook 07. We are running on an Exchange 03 server, and the OS is a corporate XP image.

Sorry this sounds so dippy .. if I wasn't so dippy I wouldn't have made the stupid mistake in the first place!!!

thanks in advance ...

A:Outlook 2007 - recurrent meeting

hi c4twoman,

When you deleted the meeting, did you do it for all occurences or just one.

Anyway, when doing so, Outlook should have asked you if you wanted to send an update, which would have then deleted upon receipt by the attendees.

If that hasn't happened, simplest is to send the attendees an email asking them to detete the meeting from their calendars themselves, all occurernces.

I'm running Outlook 2003 at work, and when I create a meeting in the calendar, the responses are not showing up on the tracking tab. I receive the meeting response messages from recipients, so I know some are acccepting or declining, but when I go to the tracking tab of the meeting details, only a few of the people that have accepted show as accepted. I thought this was supposed to update automatically when people reply?

Anybody seen this before, or have any ideas? Thanks!

When people respond to your meeting request, the subject of the message shows whether they have accepted or declined without having to open the meeting request. The tracking tab in calendar only updates when you actually open the response. Have you opened all the meeting response messages?

Our Exchange server works well but Iím having problems with some users receiving accept replies for meetings and I canít determine why since everyone is set up basically the same. Important to know is that all mail comes in through the client, the Exchange server does not talk to the web. The default SMTP address is the external email domain which means that any communication between staff goes out to the external domain account and then is retrieved via the POP3 connection by the recipient.

The meeting invitations arrive properly but when they are accepted some users meeting never note the acceptance. Checking the acceptance reply, which goes to the Deleted folder, I can verify that the email address was correct. Iím out of ideas and any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have a user running Windows XP and Outlook 2003 on an Exchange Server. Generally everything runs fine. He has a problem where he scheduled a recurring meeting to happen weekly between a certain time period. He sent this request out to several other employees who have accepted. The meeting shows up on their calendars but does not show up on the organizors calendar. Obviously, the meeting had to have been created as it shows up on the invitees. The organizer says he did not delete it from his calendar. Other he meetings he schedules show up fine on his calendar. Is it possible there is a setting or something he clicked inadvertantly to cause this recurring meeting not to show on his calender?? Or is it just a weird bug in the program?

I use a "Wireless access point" connected to my firewall router. I have tried disabling the wireless firewall and assigning a static IP. I am logged into the domain but the only way to can view the other computers on the network is to connect through a wired connection. I'm thinking it has to be a setting in my Wireless router but I cannot figure it out.

I have quite a conundrum. My Outlook calendar is set to a start time of 7am to and end time of 3pm Monday through Friday. I have turned on auto accept meetings and turned on auto decline conflicting meetings. This all works great. It has declined and added new meetings and all is working wonderfully.... EXCEPT one MAJOR issue.

The auto accept accepts during times that are not my standard work hours. If I set a start time of 7am and an end time of 3pm why is my Outlook accepting meetings at 12pm and 8pm and on weekends?

Hi, I'm a newbie to this forum so please be understanding. I did a search and couldn't find the answer. Here is my situation. I want to view my tasks when I am in my email. I know you can view your tasks by clicking task pad under View when I am in calendar, but I can't figure out how to add it to the mail screen. My boss wants to be able to see both at the same time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A:Outlook 2003 - Viewing Help

Welcome to the forum. I am glad you tried the search feature first.

Are you a former Lotus Notes or Groupwise user? You cannot see the taskpad at the same time as mail unless you have dual screens and put the taskpad on a second screen. You can however use outlook today which will show you the next week's work of appointments and will show you your tasks as well. To get to Outlook Today click on the account name at the top of the folder list which looks kind of like mailbox - Lumbergh, Bill. You can even set Outlook to open to this view each day if you change the Outlook Today options in the to right-hand corner of the window.

I'm confused and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Whenever someone sends me photos in Outlook 2003, they come through as attachments and it's a hassle to open each one.

My old computer, I think , had Outlook Express and I could just go to preview pane and scroll through the pics.

Is there an option or setting I'm missing?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!

A:Outlook 2003 - viewing photos

This was done deliberately as to allow automatic opening of HTML images is actually a security risk, you could end up getting infected.
However, from here:
You should be able to overide some of the security, but I would urge you not to.

To configure options for automatic picture download behavior in Outlook

In Group Policy, load the Outlook 2003 template (Outlk11.adm).
Under User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office Outlook 2003\Tools | Options\Security, click HTML Mail External Content Settings.
To change a policy for the automatic picture download feature, double-click an item in the Setting column.
For example, to lock down disabling automatic content downloading from all sites, double-click Block all external content.

Click the Enabled radio button to enable configuring the policy.
Select the check box in the policy, and then click OK.

I am using Microsoft Outlook for my mail. When I have an animated gif as an attachment it opens in Microsoft Photo Editor which means I can not see the animation and I have to download it n order to see. Once downloaded it opens in Windows picture and fax viewer which lets me see the animation.

How can I view the animationed gifs in my mail without having to download them first.

A:Viewing Gif attachments in Outlook XP without downloading

not sure what you mean by download
if the email is in your inbox then the mail has already been downloaded attachment and all
for a gif to work in the email the email format needs to be html and the gif needs to be inserted in the email not added as an attachment
if the gif is an attachment or email format is text and there is no way of changing it at source, change the file associations so that internet explorer is the default program for .gif's
this will mean when clicked on they will open in internet explorer animated

Whenever I receive e-mails with pictures, they are always as attachments which means extra steps to view the pic in addition to trying to read the e-mail. In the past and I'm not sure if this is a security upgrade type thing, I thought I could simply open the e-mail and the text would be there along with the picture. Could this be that the sender simply chose to have the picture sent as an attachment?

Any suggestions? I would really like to just be able to open up the e-mail and have everything right here.

Oh and I also did some upgrade thing where I have to right click on a bar at the top of an e-mail to allow some pictures to be seen.

If you mean that you have to highlight a message(Therefore opening the message) in your inbox and then hit delete .
You can set up rules in outlook ,or you can block a sender ,but that still means selecting them after the fact.

I had a user tell me that they had messed up their calendar view and can't get it back. After numerous testing ideas, I too can not get it back. I changed the view, restarted outlook, removed the filter, etc. No matter what I can not get the default view to go back to the standard view that all my other users see.

This view starts like the first image below. I can make it look normal, but when the user clicks on Mail/contacts/tasks (etc) then clicks on calendar it goes right back to this view:

open the (individual) contact

click 'save and close' (top left)
press F5 as you are coming back to the 'list view' of the contact group
the corrected contact will now have the name in col 1 and the email adr in col 2.

A:Solved: viewing pictures in outlook express

Outlook Express opens pictures at their ful size - it has no ability (as far as I know) to resize them to match your screen size or the size of the preview pane, which is where you are seeing them. (After all, it is an email client, not a picture viewer). You don't say what you look at them with after you save them, but most tools for viewing graphics do automatically resize the pictures to fit your screen (or some other size - you can usually alter how the picture is displayed). Also, most viewers allow you to view the picture at full size, at which point you would see them like you do in OE.

Upgraded from Outlook 2003 (where problem didn't exist) to 2007 where problem started.
When I sort using a column header (i.e. From, Subject, Received, Size, etc.), in any folder, the results of my sort start at the bottom of my Viewing Window which necessitates my scrolling down to view the results.
Formerly these results were appropriately displayed starting at the top of my view window showing all accompanying emails, which is my goal for this 'customization'.
I'm sure that there is an easy answer - one where I simply have to check or uncheck a box, but I have spent countless hours on this and have come up empty.
