I have a reoccuring meeting that was set up three years ago by a terminated employee.  The AD and Exchange accounts have been deleted for a couple of years.  I recently upgraded to Exchange 2007 and all clients are on Outlook 2007.  When trying to delete this meeting and send the cancellation notice I receive the errror: "You do not have the permssion to send the message on behalf of the specified user".  How can I delete this meeting when the account is no longer present?

This only shows me the contents of my account.  I double checked to make sure.  The problem I am facing is that I cannot access the meeting logged on as the creator becuase the AD account and Exchange account have been deleted.  Thanks for the suggestion and I look forward to using this tool.

I was able to use this to access the Public folders contents and delete the meetings from this location.  Sorry I jumped the gun on my comment before doing a little digging on my own.

You need to run it against an account for which the meeting resides.

All squared away, I just used it from my account across one of the Public folders for which she had set up a meeting and was able to delete it from there.  Thanks!
