Automatically accept tasks

 Automatically accept tasks

I've created a dummy user to hold a department task list.
(public folder task lists don't let you assign tasks)

People can create new tasks OK, and the Dept.Manager can allocate them to
others.

When people accept these tasks and later send updates, the update messages
sit in the dummy account Inbox.

Is it possible to set it to automatically accept incoming tasks and updates
so it can run without human intervention ?

Thanks,

Tim.

I don't see anything in the stock Rules included with Outlook that would
let you do this.  Check Slipstick though and see if you can find a
third-party app that might have a Rule to do this.

Do you use McAfee VirusScan?  Download the VS4.0.2 service pack 2 from:

I don't think you can do it with a simple rule, but it might be possible to
adapt Robert Strong's autoaccept script for appointments, found at

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've now got the Meeting Request AutoAccept script working OK, All I have to
do know is work out how to adapt it.

Any suggestions on sources of info on writing Exchange VBScripts ?
(Books, Websites, etc)

Tim.
