I experience the same issue as "***@gmail.com" for a meeting scheduled
by my European counterpart. Everytime he sends an update to this recurring
meeting Outlook says, "This meeting request was updated after this message
was sent. You should open a later update or open the item on the calendar."
I'm thinking the root cause might be that he is in CET time zone while I am
in EST time zone, so when he sends an update the update will always appear
out-of-date because the time is later in CET time zone.
Outlook has to have some way of handling this, I'm sure, just not sure of
the mechanism or setting I need to change to handle this scenario or maybe
there is no way of getting around it. If it turns out there is no way to
avoid this because we are in different time zones, that will be annoying
because Outlook acts like everything is OK even though it doesn't perform the
For example, I received an update today (20 NOV) for the cancelation of
meeting on Thanksgiving (27 NOV) from my European counterpart, after which I
hit the "Remove from Calendar" button and the update moves to the "Deleted
Items" bin, but the meeting is still on my calendar. How frustrating!
It would be nice to know how to avoid this glitch and thank to anyone who
can provide this information.

I hope that someone can shed some light on this issue.
I have a user that does not receive updates to recurring meetings. The
meetings are booking in a public calendar. She receives the change
notification but it says that is is "Not Current" and there is a blue
"This meeting request was updated after this message was sent. You
should open a later update or open the item on the calendar."
The user does not have any problems with other meetings (accepting,
updating, deleting etc.)
The user does not have access to the public calendar (fwhich is for
admin staff only to book meetings with).
Thanks very much,
