Running Exchange 2003 with a BES Server.
User has a delegate enabled in Outlook with request to send all invites "To My Delegate Only", however, the user who has this delegate set in his Outlook is receiving the meeting requests on his Blackberry & wants it to stop.

He does not have any type of rules configured in Outllook.  Is there a Blackberry setting to stop him from receiving these requests that are set in Outlook for him not to receive?

    One way to solve this is just to create a rule in outlook that for all meetings, etc... just have them go into another folder then the inbox.  The blackberry will not pick them up and that should eliminate the user from seeing them.

    but he doesn't receive any meeting requests in his inbox, they all go to his delegate...?

    I don't think you can stop this, at least not at the server level. That is because of where the Blackberry gets the message in the message flow. From memory, the meeting request is sent to the mailbox, and is then dealt with by the delegate system. However that is most likely AFTER the Blackberry has seen the message and sent it to the device.

    ended up contacting RIM and this is what they said...

    "RIM tech support stated that the invitee responses get forwarded to the Blackberry by design and it would not matter what was set in the Outlook delegate options.  RIM suggested a workaround by using a secretary mailbox or an org mailbox to send invitations."

    thank you both for the input
