Resolve: Where and When information is not displayed in meeting request sent via Outlook 2010

This article may interest you, if when you send a meeting request via Outlook 2010, and the where and when information about the meeting is not added to the body of the meeting request received by the receipient.

Receipients that receive meeting request created and sent via Outlook 2010 experience this issue, because potential meeting attendees invited may be using text-based email client programs or web applications that do not support all the controls in the meeting request.

In those cases, the body text provides the meeting details to the user. When Outlook 2010 is used to create the meeting and send the request, this body text is no longer generated.

However, in earlier versions of Outlook, this meeting details text is added to the body of a meeting when it is sent.

To resolve this issue, on the sender’s client, you need to add a registry value to make Outlook 2010 revert to the behavior found in earlier Outlook versions.

Important: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

1. Launch Registry Editor. Click start type regedit in the serach bar, then hit enter.

2. Locate and then click to select the following registry subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Calendar

3. Add the following registry data to this key:
Value type: DWORD
Value name: EnableMeetingDownLevelText
Value data: 1

4. Exit Registry Editor.

Administrators may choose to create the registry value in the policy key of the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Calendar
