    I am using Exchange but have mail delivered toy personal folders. Since
    doing this my appointments appear in the calendar in my personal folders. Is
    thereany way to automatically sync the calendar in Exchange withthe calendar
    in my personal folders?

  2. Set exchange as the default mailbox and use rules to move messages to the
    personal folder.

    I have already done that, which is why the mail is already going to my
    personal folders. This is what I want. The problem is, when I accept a
    meeting request, it is placed in my calendar in teh personal folder. I need
    to sync that calendar with the calendar in exchange.

  4. You miss the point. You WANT the Exchange mail box to be the delivery
    location, not the PST. Click Tools>E-mail Accounts>Next. In the "Delivery
    new e-mail to the following location" drop-down, specify "Mailbox -
    yourname" as the value. Click Finish. Stop and restart Outlook.

    Now click Tools>Rules and Alert>New Rule>Start from a blank rule>Check
    messages when they arrive>Next. Check the "uses the _form name_ form"
    condition. Click "_form name_" and on the "Choose Forms" dialogue, select
    the "Application Forms" value in the drop-down at the upper left. Scroll in
    the scroll list below that and select the "Message" form. Click Add, then
    Close. Click Next. Select the "Move it to the _specified_ folder" action,
    click "_specified_" and select the Inbox (or some other) folder in your PST.
    Click OK, then check the "stop processing more rules" action. Click Next,
    then Next, give your rule a name and click Finish. Now you'll get all your
    mail and ONLY your mail delivered to the PST. The rest (meetings, tasks,
    etc.) will stay in Exchange like they should.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem as ripper, but i am using Outlook 2000. What, if
    any, is the fix for this version?

    I have already used the "Services - Delivery" Option to set the Exchange
    server as the defalt place for new mail, and have many rules to fwd emails
    and recipts to my various PSTs (which i guess include meeting requests). But
    when i accept meeting requests from the PST, they go into the PST Calendar,
    not the exchange calendar. Is there any way to delete the PST Calendar? Or is
    it better to recreate the PST from scratch?

    Thanks
    Steve

  7. Can you simply leave the invites in your mailbox instead of having them
    moved to a PST? Why are you moving so much to the PST files?

  8. Try opening outlook using the /resetfolders switch.

    Create a new personal folder and manually copy everything from the existing one to the new one - then remove the old one afterwards and modify any rules to point to the new one.

    Very important is to keep the Exchange Server as the default (Account Settings | Data Files). The reason you have a calendar in your personal folder is because you accidentally set your personal folder to be the default.

    Thanks much for the suggestion to create new/move/delete suggestion. This was driving me crazy because somehow I mussed have accidentally set the personal folder to default and all my calendar appts started going there. This worked like a charm!
