A new task request, much like a meeting request, appears in your Inbox as a new e-mail message.
Figure 46. Task Request Example
When you open a task request you’ve received from someone else, the Task tab surprises you with a new group – Respond.
Figure 47. Respond Group
In the Respond group, all you need to do is choose the response you’d like Outlook to send back to the person who assigned the task.
