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.

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

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!
