We have small business 2003 server with exchange and recently when sending out meeting makers a person who has not been invited to the meeting receives the email. when I check the original email the persons email address is no where to be found. What is going wrong and how can I track this?

More than likely there is an old Delegate assignment configured Outlook.  Check for that in Tools > Options > Delegate Tab.

It could be either, but usually it's one of the recipients/invitees that has the errant delegate configured.  (Or it could be a valid delegate configuration if they wanted this other person to receive the meeting notice).

The other way that wrong users get meeting notices is if there is a Distribution Group which has the same email alias as the user.  But this is rare.
