When I send meeting invitation, sometime I discover that people finally refuse them.
Is it possible to tag a meeting refusal message?

    Hi Gael,

    You should be able to achieve that via rules. To target the rule to any declined meeting requests, you need to use the "uses the form name form" condition and select the "Decline Meeting Response" form. There are detailed instructions/screenshots in this thread:

    For the action, select the "assign it to the category" or any other action as appropriate.

    Hi @Gael JEHANIN

    Do you mean to filter out rejected emails for meetings?

    If a meeting request is declined, the meeting is not saved to your calendar and the meeting request message is moved to the Deleted Items folder.

    There is no way to show a declined meeting on your calendar in Classic Outlook. You can only show accepted or tentative meetings on your calendar. It is recommended that you set rules or categories to distinguish between them.

    However, you can enable it in Outlook on the web or in the new Outlook for Windows by manually checking "Show declined events in your calendar..." in Settings > Calendar > Events and invitations > Save declined events. More information, see:

    Thanks, but that's not my request :)

    I'd like to tag the reply of guest from an invitation I'd sent
