Meeting requests only received as an email

When I send meeting requests to my husband on our home computer, they do not come through as a meeting request, only as an email with the meeting information in the mail. When he sends them to me, they come to me fine and I can accept them. We both use Outlook. I checked and he is not set to receive all mail as plain text. Any idea what else it could be? Thanks!

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

You need to check your settings, on your side. It can sometimes be just something small. The easy way to make sure yours is right compare it with your husband’s.

I have a comcast account and meeting requests arrive in my mailbox with the information as text, just as you discribe; however there is also an attachment and if I open the attachment it opens a regular outlook meeting request. Tell him to look for the attachment. Does he have Outlook installed on his PC?

    What is the ISP he receives his email from? Is it different than yours?

    Yes, I am getting my email through my employer's network, and he is on Comcast at home.

    I should also mention that any other person I send meeting requests to, whether inside our company our out, gets them just fine. It is just my husband's email that seems to strip them down.

    Does he have Outlook 2000? If meeting requests are sent from Outlook 2003 with the reminder turned on, Outlook 2000 cannot translate the message into a meeting request. Turn off the reminder before you send the request and it will convert properly.
