Error description

  • Steps:
    1) Notes chair create a repeating meeting and invite an
    Outlook/Exchange
    invitee (5 days is fine)
    2) Outlook/Exchange invitee receives invitation.  Click forward.
     Enter the
    address of the Notes chair who sent them the invite.
    3) Notes chair will receive an update to a meeting that they are
    the chair of
    -The subject of this update is pre-pended with: Update: FW:
    Invitation:
    -The options are Open Meeting, Update Calendar, and Check
    Calendar
    -The update looks correct - all times seem valid
    4) If the chair hits 'Update Calendar', the meeting is removed!
    When I go back
    to the update notice to hit 'Open Meeting'
    
    You then can see that it is actually on the calendar (in
    thousands of years):
    
    
    
    Note: If this is done for a single meeting, you do not have an
    Update calendar
    or Check Calendar option - instead you see:
    'You cannot process this notice because this meeting is not in
    your mailfile or
    has not been accepted.'
    
    Note: If this is done in an Exchange environment, you see:
    'as the meeting organizer, you do not need to respond to this
    message'.
    
    
    
    Note: This should be fixed both in autoprocessing (block
    delivery) and in the
    template.
    

Local fix

  • 1) Do not click update calendar
    2) Create an ondelivery agent to remove updates to meetings you
    are the chair of
    3) Open the meeting (from the update notice, which should be in
    the all
    documents view) and reschedule it back to the correct dates...
    however there
    will not be any invitees.  If you add invitees back on, they
    will receive a
    second invitation (not the end of the world but you can go
    offline and then
    delete this from the local mailbox).  You can cancel however at
    this point and
    it should be removed from invitees calendars, at which point
    creating a new
    meeting is recommended.
