Meeting Request Sent to Wrong User

This question is similar to others posted but none of the solutions have worked so far.

I have a user A  whose meeting requests are being sent to User B. User B can accept the meeting requests and they will be put in User A's calendar.  User A does not have a rule forwarding meeting requests and delegation is not set for any user.  User B does not have any delegation set, but does have permission to view and edit User A's calendar.  User A is receiving all other commuication (Email, Tasks, etc) properly.

The exchange server message tracking instantly routes the meeting request to User B's mailbox.  It does not display any errors or show any rules processing before it gets processed for User B's inbox.  There are no rules that I can find in AD causing this and it was working properly as of yesterday morning.  I am the only Admin on the system and no one else has AD or Exchange server permissions.  I figured this was a simple fix, but apparently not.

User is running Outlook 2003 sp2 and server is Windows 2003 standard with Exchange 2003 sp2.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi jbmos2333,

Just to make sure I'm understanding correctly, are you saying that userA created and sent a meeting request and that user B received this request even though user A did not addres it to him/her?  If so, then is user B a delegate on one of the recipients mailboxes, or were they ever a delegate on a mailbox?  I know you said that user B doesn't have any delegations set (meaning that they have not delegated access to anyone), but I'm not clear on whether that means they are not a delegate on someone else's mailbox.

Anyone that sends a meeting request to User A is getting forwarded to User B.  I see no rules or delegations on User A's profile or User B's profile.  But the meeting requests can originate from anywhere.

Has there ever been a delegation on either account?  This typically happens when an account had been set up as a delegate and was later removed without cancelling the delegation.
