I mistakenly declined a single occurrence of a recurring meeting in Outlook. How do I undo this and get the meeting back?

I also had a look at How to get back a declined outlook invitation. But that question does not relate to my problem. As I have declined a single occurrence in a reoccurring event.

I'm using Outlook 2007 on Exchange.

Was it sent via email or via calendar option? Is it from someone in your organization ON the exchange server, or from someone outside of the organization? –  Canadian Luke Jan 30 '12 at 19:32
This appears to be a duplicate of How to get back a declined outlook invitation. –  CharlieRB Jan 30 '12 at 20:33
This is not a duplicate, because the linked answer does not explain how to recover from declining a single occurrence to a recurring invite. –  Nic Aug 16 '12 at 18:54

It might be in your deleted folder.

I also could not "undecline," so I went to the sender's calendar, opened the item, and cllicked the button to copy to my calendar. A message popped up and said that to do this, I had to accept the meeting, which I did. Now it's on my calendar. Hope this helps.
