Hello. I have a user that when she creates a calendar event to user A and herself and user A accepts the message, user B receives a notification of the calendar event in his inbox, user B has nothing to do with the meeting. I looked at user B's permissions and he is not in any special groups and everything seems normal as far as i can tell. This is a very bizzarre error.

Take a look at User A's and also at the original users settings to see if User B is a delegate of either of them.  There is a checkbox in the Delegate tab in Tools/Options that will send meeting notifications to the delegate only, and not back to the person that created the meeting request.

Hi, the user did have that person as a delegate but they are still getting the notifications. I have had both users reboot since i made the change.

8eindustrial, also take a look at the Permissions tab in the Properties of the Calendar for the person that had given the delegate rights.  Delegate rights can be set there as well, and may still be affecting the user.

After the reboot did you create a new meeting request as a test, or are you using the original request?

Okay the user only has one delegate and no one else has any visible permissions to this persons mailbox. The person apparently still get's email notifications from other people that have not included him on the meeting.

Try creating a new mail profile for the person that is getting the notifications (and shouldn't be).

Double click the Mail icon in Control Panel, then click Show Profiles, then Add.  Once you've added the new profile remove the original one.
