    I love my Nokia 920 and Windows Phone 8 but might have to give it up due to being unable to accept meeting requests. I have an IMAP account for work and every time someone sends me a meeting request from their Outlook desktop client I get this when I try to respond:

    Can't respond to meeting request

    This account either doesn't use a calendar or the calendar is not synching. So we'll send your response from Outlook account.
    Do you want to continue?

    I'm hoping there is something I can do to fix this because work isn't migrating to an exchange server any time soon, or likely ever. I don't see a way to associate my IMAP account with a calendar on the phone so I'm hoping someone has a creative solution. For some this may seem like a minor issue but I am finding that when I do allow it to send through my 'personal' Outlook account my business contacts start using that personal Outlook email account to send me work related emails, etc.

    My iPhone 5 doesn't have this issue but I'd rather keep the Nokia and sell the iPhone 5.

    Does your workplace use Outlook with Exchange or without Exchange? Sync your Outlook calendar to Windows Phone

    Curious. Mine works fine with 8.1, unfortunately.

    Try this:
    1) create a outlook.com account for work (as outlook.com supports push and you don't have to set a manual sync period) and forward work emails to that.
    2) go to add a send-only account and add your work account
    3) change the default "from" address to your work account, which would result in (first name, surname on behalf of workemail@workdomain)

    However you may want to check with your IT department before doing so as they may or may not prohibit you from doing so.

    Edit: I just noticed this thread is over 14 months old! looks like time to go to sleep.
