Stop automatic outlook opening

When i plan a new meeting in the calndar and hit the button save, my (uninstalled) outlook tries to install itself.

I use thunderbird as a mailing-service. (it is also set as standard application for emails)

I always have to close the automatically opend outlook-windows which can get a little annoying.

Any Idea how I can switch of the automatic outlook opening?

Thanks for your help!

Hi @Michael301 

Are you using the Windows calendar?

This could be searching as default to open the Outlook when an event alarm arises.

Best regards

Hi Vatsilidis,

Thanks for your fast reply. But no, I don't use windows calendar.

I use my calendar within Thunderbird.

I also postet a screenshot with the problem. every time when i am hitting "new meeting" i have this reaction.

Thanks again for helping me out.

Now it is a bit more clear.

Have you tried to turn off Outlook auto-accept of meeting invites?

This guide shows how to do it in an older version, but I assume there aren't much differences in your Outlook version.

Check and update, please.

Re: Stop automatic outlook opening

Hmmm... no, unfortunately it didn't work. I looked in Outlook (options, calendar, scheduling automatic. ) All options are unchecked (screenshot). I can't even uncheck the boxes.

When I klick on meeting (I asume) there has to be a procedure in the backround in the sense "open outlook calendar create a meeting with the following content...".

How can I forbid Blizz to communicate with outlook? How can I change the procedure?outlook problem2.jpg

Re: Stop automatic outlook opening

At this post says how to uninstall MS Office integration. I guess in the same way you can uninstall it!

Could you give it a try and update, please?

At the moment it is not even installed (screenshot)

To uninstall it I need to install it first. Should I do that? Outlook problem3.jpg

Well, it is a bit strange, but yes, try to install it, then restart the app and uninstall it.

If continues to happen, then I would suggest to you to uninstall completely the Blizz app, reboot the machine and reinstall it.
