Responses from external meeting attendees do not appear in Outlook tracking

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario. You create an Outlook meeting, and you invite one or more attendees who are external to your Exchange organization. Later, you notice that the Tracking page in the Outlook meeting does not show the meeting responses from the external attendees. Additionally, if you view the meeting in Exchange Server 2007 Outlook Web Access (OWA) or in Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2013 Outlook Web App (OWA), the tracking information does not show attendee responses from external attendees.

Cause

By default, Exchange Server are not configured to process external meeting requests or meeting responses.
