If you currently like the way your email is setup and don't want anything to happen to settings so that email would be presented differently let me suggest the following.....
Click on view......

Choose the setting as below but give your view a different name.  You can name it Tims view if you want but ..... nevermind

How to get Outlook to stop automatically adding Microsoft Teams invites
whenever you do a calendar invite/add an individual

From Outlook, open the File Tab and look for your personal link to access your account on a web browser
From here, look for the Settings Icon in the top right corner:

Click below where it shows  View All Outlook Settings

From here, go to Calendar, and to Events and Invitations  and Uncheck the box that shows Add online meeting to all meetings then SAVE the setting in the bottom right corner

Last, and most important part, close out all windows and restart your computer for the changes to take effect. From here on out, they shouldn’t auto-populate anymore 😊


If you still needed to make a Teams meeting though, the option is still available to do so on the Outlook app’s calendar tab (see below).
