Meeting Invite Reply Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    How do I prevent this from occurring?

    User A sends a meeting invite to 50 people. One of the invitees (User B) forwards the meeting to user C and asks if she got the invite. User C replies to the forwarded invite and says "I got it". The reply goes to User A.

    User A is now frustrated because she didn't sent the email asking if User C received the invite. How can I prevent the reply from going to User A? I need a solution that can be managed from the Exchange 2016 server, not the Outlook client if possible.

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    you can't. Meeting invites are different from regular emails.

    The only way to prevent this behaviour is by educating the users.

    That said, there may be some advanced transport agent out there (like Exchange Rules Pro) that can achieve that.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
