users using OLK11 create meeting requests with a couple of attendees

for no reason that I can find, distibution group called "admin" receives an invitation to each meeting request without actually being invited.

Delegate somewhere is the usual cause.
See if you can track down which user being invited triggers the message to the group.


Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

the admin distibution group only has one user in it, and it's sole pupose is to bounce mail to admin@domain.com out to another external email address.

will try more isolation to determine who does it


for some reason the one member group causing this problem was improperly created (by me) as a security group.  Changed type of group to DIST and problem went away.
