Exchange 2003, Cluster of 2 servers running 2003 Server.  I am getting some Failure Audits in the Event Log that dont make much sense.  The event ID is 565.  Lets say I have Jim, Mark, and Zach.  I will see these failure audits from Jim on Jim's account.  Same for Mark and Zach.  What I found is that I have seen these same audits only they were on Mark and Zach's account but they were caused by Jim.  I could recreate the audit if I tried to open another persons mailbox so I thought that Jim might be trying to read other people's mail.  He tells me that they were probably caused by Meeting Requests that he sent out and surprisingly they match up.  But then I found some more of these audits only they dont match up with any Meeting Requests.  Here is an example of an audit I have seen.

To me it looks like Jim is trying to access Zach's account but there is no definitive statement to this effect.  Any help would be great.

It appears that Jim is trying to open Zach's mailbox.  He may be going to File>Open>Other User's folder or he simply may have his mail client incorrectly configured.

Is there an Event Log Error number associated with that log?

That is how I reproduced the event, using file>open...  I got the 565 Event when I tried to open a mailbox I was not allowed to.

Ok, well that should be normal.  If you aren't delegated access by the user then it will log an access error.

As for Meeting requests causing this it's hard to say.  Meeting Requests should be a simple email, however, when the user responds to it then it should be updating the requestor's Calander with the the new attendee.  Perhaps the users have remove everyone's access to Calander or the permissions somehow are not set to default so the replies are being blocked via bad permissions.

I spent over 4 hours on the phone with Microsoft and they are saying its a known issue\Bug in Windows and will be taken care of in the next SP.  I will split the points.  Thanks for the help.
