Hi techieBird!

I have an user who always appears as tentative even if appointment is

accepted/declined. Also we cannot see her availability on outlook before

sending the appointment on a approprietated time.

Now I realize user changed (under outlook settings) to all msgs arrived

being moved to a pst file instead of mailbox

I didnt call user again to not give her false hope in case of no success but

do you think if she start using mailbox again as primary recipe this will

work?

Txs,

Mau

yes, if she uses the mailbox as her default delivery location, it will work

correctly.

You can further control what users can do with delivery options through

group policy. Re-routing to PST is a terrible idea and the user probably

does not realize that the messages are no longer backed up.
