Meetings appear in the calendar as Tentative but the user didn't receive the requests in the inbox or meeting responses from others don't appear in the inbox

PROBLEM

A user experiences one or both the following symptoms in Outlook:
  • The user doesn't receive meeting requests in their inbox. However, the meetings appear in the user's calendar as Tentative.
  • When the user creates a meeting request, the user doesn't see meeting responses from attendees. However, tracking information for the meeting is updated in the user's calendar.
In this scenario, the user does not have a delegate set up.

CAUSE

This issue occurs if the meeting requests were processed incorrectly in the user's mailbox and they get delivered to the user's Deleted Items folder instead of the Inbox folder or the meeting requests were processed incorrectly as if a delegate was set up. 

This can occur if the Receive folder for the IPM.SCHEDULE.MEETING message class was changed to the /Schedule folder or if the PR_RULE_MSG_PROVIDER property of messages that have as message class of IPM.Rule.Version2.Message is set to Schedule+ EMS Interface.
