[E2007][EWS-XML][XML] MyResponseType is always Organizer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation where one user creates a meeting in Outlook and invites other users. "User1" is the organizer and "User2" and "User3" are the invitees. Both users decline the invitation.

    If I do a FindItem for User2, the item is not there as expected. FindItem call for User3 however still shows it. One thing I noticed is that when I retrieve the item using GetItem, it shows the <t:MyResponseType> for User3 as "Organizer", even though this user is not the one who created it. User3 shows up in the RequiredAttendees with a ResponseType  of "Decline"

    I'm curious what would cause User3 to have a ResponseType of "Organizer" instead of "Tentative" or "Declined"

    This is what is returned from a GetItem call while impersonating User3

    <m:Items xmlns:t="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types"

     <t:CalendarItem>
      .....
      <t:MyResponseType>Organizer</t:MyResponseType>
      <t:Organizer>
       <t:Mailbox>
        <t:Name>User1</t:Name>
        <t:EmailAddress>User1@somedomain</t:EmailAddress>
        <t:RoutingType>SMTP</t:RoutingType>
       </t:Mailbox>
      </t:Organizer>
      <t:RequiredAttendees>
       <t:Attendee>
        <t:Mailbox>

    </m:Items>
