At the end of this list there is also a Custom setting.
Specifically, the email was sent on the 18th, and responses from the 18th do update on the tracking tab; but responses received from the 19th on are not updated on the tracking tab I did some hunting around on the Microsoft site but could not find any relevant information Have you seen these (and do any apply to your situation)?

The Use Voting Buttons option is already selected by default within this dialog box, but the voting options are set to Approve; Reject.
For example, you might want to poll the department heads to see if Tuesday night is a good time to take a server down for maintenance. When the Untitled Message window opens, select the Options tab and then click on the Use Voting Buttons button. When you click on the Use Voting Buttons button you can choose from Approve / Reject, Yes / No or Yes / No / Maybe.Recipients do NOT need to be on the same server, or on Exchange.Edit: I know this doesn't answer the questions about failure to count tallies correctly.You might want to send a poll asking what kind of food everyone prefers, but Approve / Reject or Yes / No / Maybe would hardly generate appropriate responses to the question.In these types of situations Outlook gives you the option to create a custom poll.
