Calendar Items Disappear When They're Expired

We have a user that has her Calendar entries disappearing from her Calendar after the appointment time is over.  From all that I can tell there is no archiving that would be doing this.  Has anyone seen this before?  Is there a fix?  Thanks.

Exchange Server 2003 SP1, Outlook 2003 SP1.

Greetings, griffisblessing.

Have you checked to see if there's a filter that's keeping the items from being visible?

Cheers!

Great idea, but I have checked in to this and it isn't the issue.  It appears that any item entered directly in to the Calendar will be automatically deleted after it's appointment time.  However, Calendar items that are created from Tasks do not get removed.  Any other ideas?  Maybe a mailbox corruption on the Exchange server side?  Thanks.

Unless this is a result of archiving gone wild, then Outlook simply doesn't have the ability to automatically remove items.  Something is removing them.  Since this is on an Exchange server, do you have access to OWA?  If yes, then are the items also missing when you look at the calendar from OWA?  What software, if any, is in use that interfaces with Outlook?  Any Blackberrys or PDAs?  Outlook add-ins?  Macros or code?  Also, you mention "Calendar items that are created from Tasks do not get removed".  How are you creating calendar entries from tasks?  Drag and drop?

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I've had no luck in finding any software settings that would be causing these erasures.  Are there any tools from Microsoft that can scan a particular mailbox for errors?  I know there is eseutil, but my understanding is that only scans the entire Exchange database.

Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks.

Sorry, you're getting into the Exchange area now and I'm not as knowledgeable there.
