Remarks

POOM does not support the ReminderOverrideDefault property that is supported in the desktop version of Microsoft Outlook. When you create an appointment, Outlook Mobile automatically creates it with the default reminder information. Setting individual reminder properties automatically overrides their defaults.

In the desktop version of Outlook, you must set the MeetingStatus property of an appointment to mark it as a meeting request. This allows you to have appointments with recipients, that are not meeting requests. This is not possible in Outlook Mobile. In Outlook Mobile, an appointment is a meeting request if one or more recipients are specified. The MeetingStatus property is read-only, and can take only the OlMeetingStatus enumeration values olNonMeeting and olMeeting.

In desktop Outlook, the Address property is read-only. In Outlook Mobile, it is read/write, because POOM does not provide a Resolve method to resolve the display name to an e-mail address.

To send a cancellation to a meeting in desktop Outlook, you must first set the MeetingStatus property to olMeetingCanceled. This property is read-only in POOM, so you must call IAppointment::Cancel to send a cancellation method for a meeting. You must subsequently call the IAppointment::Delete method to remove the meeting from the user's calendar.
