Default Reclaiming a declined meeting invitation

I also agree! My issue is that the meeting invites that I sometimes have to
decline due to being double or triple booked contain agenda's and minutes
that I need to refer to long term. When I try to recover them from my
Deleted Items folder it converts them into a regular email format with no
recipient and saves as a draft email from me!!! This makes it really hard to
search on it later when I need to refer to it!!

option when Declining an appointment so the meeting can be revisited at a
later date.

Often when there are conflicting meetings, one gets cancelled or you change
your mind, but the Calendar only shows the accepted meeting. Definitely want
to keep track of declined appointments, at least to see when they occured or
to keep up with updates.

Thanks, Milly - it's unfortunate that Outlook doesn't keep a record of
declined meeting invitations. It's not unusual that situations change so
that I find I can attend a meeting after I've declined it.

Post all replies to the group to keep the discussion intact. Due to
the (insert latest virus name here) virus, all mail sent to my personal
account will be deleted without reading.


After furious head-scratching, LostButFound asked this group:

Then mark the item as tentative rather than decline.

Default Reclaiming a declined meeting invitation

I already considered that option, but it has it's problems too:
1. It needs to be clear to Meeting organizer that I am not coming,
unfortunately with our company culture this is the case.
2. If I mark as tentative, it blocks that time off in my calendar and will
bypass that time block when the autoscheduler is used. With the considerable
amount of meetings in our company, the autoscheduler is the only way to
schedule a meeting.

However, our local IT group made the recommendation to run the command line
switches for /cleanfreebusy and /cleanreminders and that work for the meeting
I had to decline today, so this may have solved the problem. We shall see...
