    I guess this solution does not solve the problem.
    The days are not alternate, as in Friday is followed by Tuesday when we exclude weekends.

    IMO, with MS Outlook such a case cannot be executed.

      If you want to do this, you can do it by:
      1. Set up a recurring M, W, F meeting for every other week.
      2. Set up a recurring T, Th meeting for every other week (specifically during the weeks when the M, W, F occurrence is skipped).

      I don't know why you would need to have these meetings occur every other day so strictly (as opposed to just having them M, W, F every week, for example), but if you need to do it that should work.
