220.127.116.11.2.3 Sending an Auto Response
After creating the Meeting object, the client can automatically send a Meeting Response object to the organizer if the value of the PidTagScheduleInfoAutoAcceptAppointments property (section 18.104.22.168) in the organizer's Delegate Information object is nonzero. When sending the Meeting Response object, the client does so as specified in section 22.214.171.124. If the client chooses to automatically respond to Meeting Request objects, it also adheres to the requirements of the PidTagScheduleInfoDisallowRecurringAppts (section 126.96.36.199) and PidTagScheduleInfoDisallowOverlappingAppts (section 188.8.131.52) properties, accepting or declining meetings as appropriate.
The client MAY<48> skip automatic sending of Meeting Response objects to the organizer if the PidLidServerProcessed property (section 184.108.40.206) of the Meeting Request object is set to TRUE and the cpsSendAutoResponse bit of the PidLidServerProcessingActions property (section 220.127.116.11) is set to 1. If the client automatically responds to the Meeting Request object, it MAY<49> set the cpsSendAutoResponse bit of the PidLidServerProcessingActions property to 1.
When the client is acting for the delegate and the client supports sending automatic responses, it uses the values defined for the delegator and not for the delegate when determining whether to automatically respond to Meeting Request objects on behalf of the delegator.
