Setting options for meeting requests.
Two of the meeting-related options are in the Calendar Options section of this dialog box:
n Allow Attendees to Propose New Times for Meetings You Organize: If this option is
turned on, people to whom you send meeting invitations can propose new times for the
meeting. If not, they will not have this option available to them.
n Use This Response When You Propose New Meeting Times: If this option is selected,
the widely supported iCalendar format is used for the response when you propose a new
meeting time. If not, the less widely supported Outlook format is used. You should leave
this option on unless you have a specific reason for turning it off.
