1) She is using MS Outlook 2007 calendar.
2) Hers - Navy Marine Corp Internet. Mine - verizon.net. However it does not matter who the provider is as I have the same problem no matter who tries to schedule events on my calendar.
3) Sample contents:
"When: Wednesday, December 07, 2011 5:00 PM-7:30 PM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada).
Where: Either at Texas Roadhouse or La Tabella in Wildewood - I need to let Laverne know where we want to go
Note: The GMT offset above does not reflect daylight saving time adjustments.
There is also an attached file called "meeting.ics"
No error messages. I continue to get an email with the specifics of the meeting but it does not automatically go on my calendar.
One other thing I ought to mention is I DO get proper Outlook schedule function from others outside of the Navy Marine Corp Internet (my wife's service provider) using Outlook 2007.
Also, my wife does not have the same problem on her home computer but she is running Outlook 2007, not Outlook 2003 as I am. Is there a compatibility issue between the Outlook 2007 she is running at her work and my Outlook 2003 on my home computer?
I was in error about the .ICS file. The .ics file does not accompany the scheduling emails from the Navy email system.
Agree the problem is unique to the navy email system AND Outlook 2003. My wife is running Outlook 2007 on her home computer and does not have this problem. She can schedule events on her home 2007 Outlook using 2007 Outlook at her work. BTW she ALSO works for the Navy so she is using the Navy email to schedule events on her home computer.
You are also correct in that the 2003 and 2007 versions of Outlook work seamlessly since when my wife is at home and using Outlook 2007, my Outlook 2003 accepts schedule inputs from her seamlessly.
Again, this is a problem between the Navy Outlook 2007 and my home Outlook 3003.
At this point I think we can assume that there is some incompatibility between Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 on the NMCI network. My wife is running Outlook 2007 both at home and at the office and she has no problems between home and office event scheduling nor does she have problems scheduling my calendar when she is home. I was hoping to avoid the $139.99 cost of the upgrade and will now have to decide if it is worth it.
This terminates this query. Thank you for the time and effort.
