  • Two problems with exchange 2007 meeting invitations to/from outlook 2003 client

    1. first and more important problem: When sending meeting invitations from the outlook calendars (connected to exchsrvr 2007) to recipients using outlook 2003 who are not connected an exchange 2007 server they get a long text jibrish message (hereinafter) instead of an authentic outlook meeting invitation/request. I know this is an exchange problem because when I send the same meeting invitation from the same computer with the same outlook using my external pop3 mail account all the recipients get the message just fine!
    o Sending from OWA produces the same problem
    o Sending from a station without an antivirus/antispam/firewall produces the same problem
    o Sending meeting invitations in English didn’t help ( I suspect Hebrew has something to do with this problem..)
    o Changing the various outlook message options didn’t change much including: changing language defaults (in server and in client), changing internet message format and message composing format(
    o When forcing through exchange server (in hub transport- remote domain) always use exchange rich text or forcing using TNEF (through cmdlet) the remote recipients get the message without the jibrish but in "winmail.dat" format (like RTM message received by non-outlook clients..) without voting buttons and so on..
    o When I sent the message to clients with outlook 2007 everything was fine and the problem didn’t reproduce it self
    o After setting up an exchange contact in our exchange organization to one of those remote recipients – this contact succeeded in accepting the meeting invitations (and after another configuration change in the sending outlook- unchecking the checkbox of " let outlook automatically choose encoding to your outgoing messages")
    Please help! I don’t know where to go next..
    2. When a subject receives a meeting invitation it is always with "reminder" on even if the meeting doesn't have a reminder in the sending outlook (or owa) This problem is mainly annoying but I would be glad to get some help on this too.

    We are Using exchange 2007 on server 2003 r2 64bit with all the sp and patches
    The clients use :
    office 2003 with all the sp and patches – Hebrew interface
    win xpsp2


    this is the message as received by recipients outside the exchange 2007 organization:

    Did you ever find a resolution for this? We are experiencing the exact same issue, and it is causing considerable frustration with our clients.
