Cannot delete public folder calendar entries set up by deleted user

Hi

We are using Exchange 2003 Sp2, Outlook 2003 and 2007 clients.

We have some calendars set up as public folders that various people can access. One of our users (UserA) created several entries but then left, and her account was deleted.

Another user (UserB) is trying to delete those entries, but cannot. UserB has Editor permissions on the Public Folder, but it says that she doesn't have rights to do this. She can create and delete her own entries fine.

Does anyone know how to get round this? UserA may still have Editor rights on the PF in a way, since there are some SID's I can see in the permissions list which indicates her permissions weren't removed before the account was deleted.

Can anyone help?

As the administrator of Exchange you should be able to delete those entries.

Hi and thanks for the comments.

Nope, I set up the user in question as an owner of the PF, but she still can't delete them.

Because there are quite a few, and we may encounter this issue again, I would prefer for a user to be able to delete these entries than get myself involved...although I guess I may have to as a last resort.

Any other ideas?
