    i tried this and even though it creates the outlook meeting invite, the start time of the meeting invite cannot be set?

    "Appointment Item".StartUTC(TODAY) will only allow the setting of a DATE and not DATETIME

    Has anyone got any idea why we cannot set the time of the meeting using this Outlook automation variable?
