Outlook and Meeting Invitations. (Part 2)
Outlook Meeting Disappearing
If we don’t see anymore the Meeting invitations, we can try to run the below commands to resolve the problem.
This switch command wipes (and copies again) the outlook roaming preferences from the pc ‘s local settings where this command is used.
Roaming settings are a small collection of settings handling the calendar reminders, the free/busy grid, working hours, calendar publishing, and RSS rules.
During the Outlook session those settings (configured on the Exchange server) might change. Typically, as soon as the new settings become available on the server, they are updated on the user client. Sometimes, (because of several reasons) they don’t. Outlook.exe /cleanroamedprefs will fix the problem.
Click on Start. On the search box type: Outlook.exe /cleanroamedprefs and click enter. (Note: there is a space after “exe” and before the slash”).
Outlook will flash up for a couple of seconds to perform the task.
The switch command Outlook.exe /sniff resets the programmatic lockout that identifies which client is processing the meeting entry.
It opens Outlook, looks for new meeting requests in the inbox and adds them to the calendar.
Start >> On the search-box type: Outlook.exe /sniff, and click enter.
Deletes the invalid profile keys and builds again the default registry keys where applicable.
Start >> On the search box type: Outlook.exe / cleanprofile >> enter
Check if the meeting is visible on Outlook Web App
Outlook Web App is the Microsoft Exchange Web-based email client.
The user experience is similar to Microsoft Outlook but it has to be considered as the light version of it.
Just go to https://login.microsoftonline.com, provide the credentials (your outlook ID and password) and log in.
Click on Calendar
The Meeting is NOT present on the OWA calendar
Should the meeting not being present on OWA neither, the best thing to do is to contact our System Administrator to check their data on the Exchange server.
The meeting is present on the OWA calendar.
If the Meeting is present on the OWA calendar it means that the problem is occurring on Our Outlook software. In this case, we would keep investigating on Outlook.
