This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to disable the auto-processing of meeting messages. A meeting message is any meeting item used in the meeting workflow to update calendar items.

The auto-processing of meeting messages includes:

  • Automatically updating the time of the meeting on an attendee's calendar after receiving an update from the organizer.

  • Automatically updating the attendee's response on the organizer’s calendar after receiving an attendee response.

This topic also explains how to disable the automatic creation of new calendar items and maintain updates for existing calendar items.

To run the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • Run the following command:

    Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "Ellen Adams" -AutomateProcessing:None

  • Run the following command:

    Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "David Pelton" -AddNewRequestsTentatively:$false

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Set-MailboxCalendarSettings reference topic.

  • For information about how to enable the auto-processing of meeting messages, see How to Enable the Auto-Processing of Meeting Messages.

  • For information about using Microsoft Outlook Web Access to manage the auto-processing of meeting messages on a per-user basis, see "Calendar Options" in Outlook Web Access Help.
