We are moving from GroupWise to Outlook 2007. In GW, I had a rule set that whenever I received an appointment and it conflicted with something else on my calendar, a reply was sent back to the sender asking them to contact my secrtary for a resolution. How can I do this in Outlook?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When a meeting invite arrives in Outlook you have the option to respond with another meeting time. There is no automated way to respond to the sender with the message that it conflicts. You as the recipient are notified in the invite that it conflicts, but the sender is not. Therefore it is up to you to notify the sender of another time that will work or to decline the invite based on the conflict.

    I know that there is no automated response functionality from Outlook, however, what I would like to do is create a rule that will respond if a conflict exists. Is this possible?

    No, that is what I meant by no "automated" way to do this. You have to respond yourself to the email. You cannot create a rule for this.
