I have a small company on exchange 2003, about 15-20 staff.  There is a user setup for a meeting room.  When a meeting invite is sent out to most staff (this meeting room user is not included).  However, staff get 2 accepted invites from this uninvited meeting room user.  I have checked all users delegation settings and no one has the meeting room user listed.  I also ran a script on the server to detect any users with the meeting room user as a delegate.  Any ideas?  Thanks

This is known as a Ghost Delegate in 2003

Check that all Outlook clients are using the latest Office 2003 SP:

Then to remove the Ghost Delegate
Go to each user, In Outlook go to Tools>Options>Delegates>
Check the current Delegates and Their Permissions, Make note of them.
Add anyone as a delegate, doesnt matter who.
Close and Re-Open Outlook

Go back to Delegates, Delete all Delegates.

Close and Re-Open Outlook
GO back and re-add delegates that were originally in Outlook.

Once done, you should no longer have this Issue.
