Is It possible to accept an Outlook Meeting Invite from ACT?

Ver 10

 

I have set up ACT to be the eMail client with Outlook. 

 

When I click on a meeting invite, I don't see where I can accept the meeting from the Act screen.  I have to go over to Outlook to accept it.  Am I missing something?

 

Thank you for your help.

Outlook meeting invites will not show up in ACT! and vice-versa as this invites are done internally through the respective programs.

That's what I was afraid of.  I'm hoping that the next version of ACT (2009) will have this feature built in, since they are focusing on Outlook integration.

 

Many thanks for taking the time to send a reply.

You might post a request for this feature to be considered for a future version here - http://www.act.com/community/feature

Has this been fixed in 2009?  I just had the first case of needing this functionality today and would like to know.  Please say "yes"!  If not, that's okay.  At least we'll have an answer...

 

What about 2010?  We haven't upgraded yet, but this may be a reason to do so if 2010 can do it.

They seem to have left this feature out of version 21 again.  I reported it back in January and was told it would be fixed in the next update.  It still has not been fixed this is starting to cause issues for our team as we receive a large number of invites for meetings and this is making the act calendar useless. Mistakes are being made when we have to manually enter the invite.
