Disabling meeting update notification in Exchange 2007 / Exchange 2010

It took me a while to figure out whether this is a problem to troubleshoot or if this is by design. Here is the scenario.

User B is User A’s delegate. All messages received by User A has been set to be forwarded to User B.

When User A organizes a meeting with any user, this gets forwarded too.

But when User B forwards the same meeting request to any email ID, user A Receives this message:

From: Microsoft Exchange On Behalf Of User B
Sent: Date and Time
To: User A
Subject: Meeting Forward Notification: Updated: Subject

Your meeting was forwarded

User B has forwarded your meeting request to additional recipients.

Updated: Subject


Meeting Time
Date and Time



All times listed are in the following time zone: (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Sent by Microsoft Exchange Server 2007


Exchange 2007 (latest Service Packs)


This is by design in Exchange 2007 / 2010 / 2013


We can disable the meeting forwarders by running the following cmdlet:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity Alias -RemoveForwardedMeetingNotifications $true

In the above cmdlet: Alias is the alias name for UserA.

The above command disables the notifications that are generated to User A’s mailbox and is performed on a per user level.


For Exchange 2010 / 2013 use the cmdlet:

Get-CalendarProcessing ratish| fl

To disable:

Set-CalendarProcessing ratish -RemoveForwardedMeetingNotifications $True

    Hi. Good post. Out of interest and in case i changed my mind once doing this If I wanted to reenable this would I run the same command but with $false at the end?
