Meeting in Calendar opens up as an email

Not open for further replies.


Hi guys,

I have a user who has a meeting in his Calendar that was created by a delegate. When you open it, it opens up as a draft email (i.e. an email that is being typed up). The "To..." field contains all the attendees, and the "Send" button is grayed out.

The meeting appears as expected in the delegate's and the attendees' Calendars. And the user has been receiving meeting replies.

When changing the Calendar view to "By Category" to view all the calendar items, the meeting isn't there.

Does anyone know why this has happened, and if the meeting can be changed from an email type to a meeting type?

This problem may happen if the meeting is created by a custom form. It is unable to change the type.
