Outlook will automatically delete meeting requests and notifications from the inbox after responding. You can prevent or stop this behavior. If an individual accepts declined or responded to a meeting request, it will automatically delete it from the inbox. If you are an individual who adds a meeting to the calendar, you can display the request by opening the calendar item, but if you are a person who does not use your Outlook calendar that much, you may find it challenging to locate the meeting details. In Outlook, you can change the settings, so that meeting requests are not deleted automatically.
