Outlook 2010 Incoming Meeting Requests display as text / code, cannot accept these invites (includes

Not open for further replies.



We installed Office 2010 professional here at work about 2 months ago. About three weeks ago, meeting invitations sent to my computer only display as a bunch of code and text. I've reinstalled office several times; the last time, I completely uninstalled Office and removed the Office registry keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. This was no help.

I really need my invitations to display properly. Any help would be vastly appreciated.

Here is what an incoming invitation looks like (with personal information scrubbed):

I forgot to add that everyone else is using Outlook 2010 and the same mail server with no problems at all, so I am pretty convinced that it is a problem with my computer / configuration.


Remove and reconfigure the email account and see if helps.If the above was helpful please click " Vote as helpful" . If it solves your problem click " Mark As Answered" . Cheers !!!!!!!!!!


Thank you for the suggestion - gave it a shot, but unfortunately it did not solve the problem. :( Any other thoughts?
