This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to enable 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.

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:AutoUpdate

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

For information about how to disable the auto-processing of meeting messages, see How to Disable 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.
