I'm using iCal to manage my calendar on an Exchange server. In outlook, when I accepted or declined a meeting, I was able to add a comment telling the sender why I couldn't make the meeting. With iCal, it just rudely declines the meeting with no ability to add a comment.

Am I missing something?

In iCal, you can. Just double-click the invitation in your inbox, and the event inspector will pop up:

How do you get the comment field to show up? – slhck Nov 1 '11 at 20:58
When you’ve been invited to an event, the comment field should be there, right above the “Maybe”, “Decline”, and “Accept” buttons. What do you see? – Sidnicious Nov 3 '11 at 15:31
I was paraphrasing the deleted message of a user who asked this – maybe it's clearer now. I personally can't say what their problems were. Thanks though :) – slhck Nov 3 '11 at 15:38
Anyone knows if that is possible from Mail as well? Declining and add comment? – Marcus Hammarberg Apr 16 '12 at 13:48
