Meeting Attendees Not Showing in Outlook

I've searched everywhere and can't find a solution to this issue that my organization is having. I have BES (SP6 w/MR1) and Exchange 2003 running on a Win2K3 server. BES is running on a Win2K3 Standard server. Here's the details:


A user creates a Meeting Invitation with Outlook (doesn't matter if it's Outlook 2003 or 2007) and sends the invitation. Attendees who are in Exchange AND have accounts on the BES server don't show up in Outlook. They're availability details are displayed, but their names are not. I can right-click where their name should be and see details such as e-mail address and free/busy information, but the name is not displayed. Names are correctly displayed on the handheld device (and it doesn't matter which device) as they should be, but they're not displayed in Outlook.

I have narrowed this issue down to a BES issue because anyone who isn't on BES doesn't have this issue. I even went as far as removing my account from BES and wiping my handheld and attendees began showing up, even on older meetings that I had created while I had the issue. As soon as I added myself back to BES, re-activated my device, the problem came back.


I've verified that I have the correct CDO.DLL files on both the Exchange box and the BES server. I'm losing my mind trying to find a fix for this. Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

I find that user appointment resposes are also missing email addresses and will not send out.

Have you tried upgrading to MR 7 yet? There have been quite a few fixes since your release.
