Summary


When you use Microsoft Outlook to update a recurring meeting series that contains an occurence or exception, multiple updates are received by attendees. Additionally, your Sent Items folder shows that multiple meeting updates were sent to the meeting recipients.

More information


An exception to the recurrence pattern of a meeting series is updated independently from the meeting series. Therefore, in order to update all the related occurences, one meeting update is sent to update the meeting series, and another update is sent for each exception to the recurrence pattern.
