A blank meeting invitation is in the Deleted Items folder in Outlook

Support for Office 2003 has ended

Microsoft ended support for Office 2003 on April 8, 2014. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

Symptoms
When you try to create a meeting by using the Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 Conferencing Add-in for Outlook or by using the Microsoft Live Meeting 2005 Add-in for Outlook, a blank meeting invitation is created in the Deleted Items folder.
Workaround
To work around this behavior, give the blank meeting a title, and then repeat that title for each blank calendar appointment that is automatically created. Then, you can set a rule to ignore the meeting invitation.
Advanced information
 The calendar item contains one of the following blocks of text for filtering:
"PLEASE IGNORE - Temporary item created by Live Meeting Add-In (Version 7.xxxxxxxx)"
"PLEASE IGNORE - Temporary item created by Microsoft Conferencing Add-in for Outlook (Version 8.xxxxxx)"


Other kinds of calendar items are created in the Deleted items folder in Outlook in the following scenarios.

Scenario 1

A Live Meeting presenter may create the following entry in the Deleted Items folder in Outlook when the presenter sends a Live Meeting invitation to the  Live Meeting attendees: 
PLEASE IGNORE - Temporary item created by Microsoft Conferencing Add-in for Outlook (Version X.0.6362.187)


Scenario 2

A Live Meeting attendee accepts a Live Meeting invitation from his or her Outlook inbox before the reminder interval for the Live Meeting starts. (The default internal is 15 minutes.) When this occurs, a Live Meeting invitation that has the following subject is created in the attendee's Deleted Items folder in Outlook: 
Meeting: <meeting subject>


Scenario 3
