Outlook 2003 Calendar

Here is my issue. When one of our department heads invites attendees to a calendar appointment, evrytime you accept you get a bounce back message stating his past assistants email address cant be reached. Obviously his old assistant is tied to his calendar in some way but I cant see where. She is'nt listed in the Permissions tab of the Calendars properties, she is'nt set as a delegate locally or on the exchange server. Does anyone know where this would be setup?
Thanks for your help.

This is a common issue in Outlook 2003. Its called Ghost Delegates
Check that you have Office 2003 SP3 installed.

To stop this:

Go to Tools>Options>Delegates
Are there any other delegates listed?
If there are note who they are and what their permissions are.
Once this has been done, add another delegate. Can be anyone w/ any type of permissions.
Close and Re-Open Outlook

GO back to Delegates
Remove ALL Delegates.
Close and Re-open Outlook

Go Back to Delegates
Re-Add any of the delegates that were originally there.

Doing this will refresh/reset the Delegate List.
You should now no longer have this issue.
In outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Delegates tab, is she listed there?

There are no rules setup on his Outlook.
Tools-> Options -> Mail Setup -> Send/Receive, any group setup there that include the assistant's name?
tstarlinAuthor Commented:
The only group in there is the All Accounts group which, seeing as her account has been deleted, she is not in.
