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.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

The only group in there is the All Accounts group which, seeing as her account has been deleted, she is not in.

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.
