User Accepts Meeting but it still shows as tentative

There are a handful of meetings that the Admin has created either on her calendar or on the VP's calendar that neither of them can accept.  We tried to go through the process to accept the meeting and selected "don't send a response" from her calendar, from his calendar which opens on her computer (set up under "open other user's calendar") and also from his computer logged in as him.  We do not get an error message, and it appears to go through correctly, but when we reopen Outlook, the meetings still show as tentative.  She is set up as his delegate and Editor on his calendar.

We have tried a repair on Outlook, until we found it was on two machines under both profiles.  The meetings were created from her machine. How do we get the meetings to show up as "Accepted"? THanks.

This may be a permissins issue with free/busy time.  On all computers with the issue open outloook, click calednar, right click the shared calendar (hopefully they only have one), click change sharing permissions, click the Default Entry that says Free/Busy time next to it, if you don't see this therein may lie the problem, so click add and add the user "default with the permissions level of free/busy time.  Also you could take this a step further and add the users trying to accept invitations to these permissions with permission level of free/busy.

I don't see any option for the "free/busy".  I am attaching a screen shot.  Thanks.

Free/Busy time is a permission level, so for Default User change the permission level to Free/Busy time, let me know if that helps or not

Thanks.  We also found that the user was accepting the meetings that she created and this was confusing Outlook unless she logged in as the other person to accept.

"Free/Busy time is a permission level, so for Default User change the permission level to Free/Busy time, let me know if that helps or not"
This is incorrect!  The only available permission levels to grant a user (including 'Default' and 'Anonymous') within Exchange 2003 calendar properties are:
None, Contributor, Reviewer, Nonediting Author, Author, Publishing Author, Editor, Publishing Editor, and Owner
Of these, Editor is the most common, granting Edit and Delete permissions for all items, as well as creating and reading items.
There is no 'free/busy' permission level.  Nor can access to free/busy be set from the delegation (calendar properties).

the free busy permission level option is only available on 2007 and newer versions of outlook...the older versions 2003 and older do not have this option..so was there ever a fix for this issue with 2003?

This issue may be caused due to iPhone sync. I do not know what the fix is. May be user can recreate that meeting which had the issue.
