Is there a setting so that when an Outlook for Mac meeting invitation is accepted the invitation is not automatically removed from the Inbox in Outlook for Mac 2011? I often accept invitations and then realize that I needed some information about them. It would make it easier if they stayed in the Inbox and behaved more like everything else in the Inbox.

  • I admit, the question is the same as this one, but this is for OSX (which has a different menu system) instead of for Windows. – cwallenpoole Feb 6 '14 at 14:40
  • It is automatically deleted, in case anyone wants to know. Because, you know, that makes sense. – cwallenpoole Feb 23 '15 at 22:02

A possible workaround is setting up a rule to copy incoming meeting invites to a folder, making them easily available:

  • Create a folder, for example "meetings", and synchronize (send/receive) so folder is on server.
  • Add a custom rule / filter:
    • If type is a meeting invite: Copy message to the folder
    • Also using a second action "mark unread" can make things look cleaner
