Have you ever wondered why you would see mismatched meetings in your calender that you know you had properly scheduled? Or maybe even some missing meeting requests that you had scheduled? This can sometimes happen when you forward a meeting request to another person when using Microsoft Outlook 2007.
In Outlook 2007 you are advised not to forward meeting requests from another person. It is advisable that you let the meeting originator send the invite to another person on your behalf. Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013 does not have this issue.
