Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2010 - Meeting Forward Notifications


  • We are an Exchange 2003 shop. We have rolled out Outlook 2010 to a number of users. In all cases when an Outlook 2010 user forwards a meeting request to another user, the original meeting organizer get a "Meeting Forward Notification." How do you stop this. I see plenty on how to disable this on  Exchange 2007 and 2010, but nothing on 2003.

    Your help is appreciated.

  • Problem resolved.

    It appears there is a local setting on Outlook 2010 (in addition to the server side option) to disable this feature. Meeting Forward Notifications can be disabled by using the Outlk14.adm or by adding a registry setting.

    Download the Outlk14.adm, open Gpedit.msc on windows 7 Pro, import ADM to Administrative Templates

    In Gpedit, browse to Admin Templates\Microsoft Outlook 2010\Misc\PST

    Enable "Do not send Meeting Forward Notifications"


    This will create the following registry setting on the local machine, which could also be added manually:
