My Outlook Calendar Meeting Request Doesn't Arrive in My Inbox
You can have event updates sent to your inbox. (calendar with bow image by Photoeyes from

Microsoft Outlook (formerly Microsoft Office Outlook) is a program primarily used to manage e-mail, but its range of uses has increased with each version released. Outlook also has a calendar feature that you can use to track appointments and important events, create new events, and invite or update other Outlook users with shared events. Since its default settings are sure to leave some users frustrated, Outlook allows for rule creation, which can tell the program to change its processes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Expand the "Tools" menu from the top of the Outlook window.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Rules and Alerts" link from the menu.

  3. 3

    Click "New" to create a new rule. Choose "Start from a blank rule," "Check messages when they arrive," then click "Next."

  4. 4

    Click "Choose Form" and select one of the following: "Accept Meeting Response," "Decline Meeting Response," "Meeting Cancellation," "Meeting Request" or "Tentative Meeting Response." Click "Add." Go back and choose each one to specify where each type of message should be sent.

  5. 5

    Click "Move it to the specified folder" from the "What do you want to do with the message?" field and select the "Inbox" folder. Click "OK," then "Next," then "Finish" at the bottom of the window.
