3.1.4.8.4 Sending a Meeting Response

After choosing a response, an attendee or a delegate of the attendee sends a Meeting Response object to inform the organizer of the attendee's choice. The client SHOULD NOT send a Meeting Response object if one of the following conditions is true:

  • The attendee is also the meeting organizer.<67>

  • The value of the PidTagResponseRequested property ([MS-OXOMSG] section 2.2.1.46) on the Meeting Request object is set to FALSE. (An example of why this property might be set to FALSE is the case in which a very large number of attendees are invited to a meeting and the organizer does not want her Inbox folder flooded with replies.)

If the following condition is true, the client can require sending a Meeting Response object to the organizer:

Beyond these constraints, the client can send a Meeting Response object to the organizer to inform the organizer of the attendee's choice. To do so, the client creates and submits a new Meeting Response object. The client then copies the following properties from the Meeting object to the Meeting Response object:<68>

In addition to these properties, if the Meeting Response object represents a recurring series, the client MUST copy the following properties from the Meeting object:<69>

  • PidLidTimeZoneStruct (section 2.2.1.39)

  • PidLidAppointmentRecur (section 2.2.1.44)

  • PidLidAppointmentTimeZoneDefinitionRecur (section 2.2.1.41)

  • PidLidIsRecurring (section 2.2.1.13)

  • PidLidTimeZone (section 2.2.5.6)

  • PidLidTimeZoneDescription (section 2.2.1.40)

The client MUST also set the following on the Meeting Response object:

  • The value of the PidTagMessageClass property ([MS-OXCMSG] section 2.2.1.3) as specified in section 2.2.7.1.

  • The value of the PidTagIconIndex property as specified in section 2.2.1.49.

  • The value of the PidLidAttendeeCriticalChange property (section 2.2.5.2) to the current date and time.

  • The value of the PidTagSubjectPrefix property ([MS-OXCMSG] section 2.2.1.9) to indicate the response type.

  • Increment the value of the PidTagConversationIndex property, as specified in [MS-OXOMSG] section 2.2.1.3.

  • The value of the PidTagSentRepresentingName property ([MS-OXOMSG] section 2.2.1.57) to the value of the PidTagMailboxOwnerName property ([MS-OXCSTOR] section 2.2.2.1) from the user's mailbox (for example, a delegate acting on behalf of the delegator would write the name of the delegate).

  • The value of the PidTagSentRepresentingEntryId property ([MS-OXOMSG] section 2.2.1.56) to the value of the PidTagMailboxOwnerEntryId property ([MS-OXCSTOR] section 2.2.2.1) from the user's mailbox.

  • The value of the PidLidIsSilent property (section 2.2.7.7) to TRUE if the user did not write any text in the body of the response.
