I have three staff who having meetings they create for the future, the day comes for the meeting and they miss the meeting because it is not on their calendar, may or not be on their blackberry.  One person has an assistant who plans the meeting on behalf of. Could their missing meetings be a relationship between their blackberry and syncing with Outlook?  thanks for your help

How are they syncing the Blackberry?  Desktop or BES?  Check the calendar sync settings to be sure the Blackberry isn't set to override the desktop.

potentially if the conflict settings are such that the blackberry overwrite outlook/exchange the attendee could see the meeting removed, howerver, if that is the case they should get a conflict dialog and have the opportunity to manually resolve it.

I'll continue to research.

the desktop manager is set for Outlook to win.  However, there have been times the meeting is not in Outlook, but in the BB calendar and the reverse:  not in BB, but is Outlook.  No one has reported a conflict dialog box.

Are there any other syncing mechanisms in place?  Like Google Sync?  Or any other OTA syncing tools?  What you're describing sounds like the kind of thing that happens when the records are being updated from multiple sources.

Hi, it is very common for this issue to occur when a PA has delegate control of BlackBerry users mailbox.  Also if you accept an appointment on the BlackBerry and the PA changes it on the Desktop the changes will fail.  Here is just one example of a known issue:
