Hi,

We're using OL 2007 on Excahnge 2003. When the boss send a meeting invite to one person, the invite goes to all six employees.  We only want the invite to go to the one person invited. All are employees are have Editor permissions for his calendar. Any ideas on how where to change this?

Thanks!

Ray

Yes it sounds like you have the options for delegates to receive meeting requests enabled.

Having Editor permission on the user's calendar will only give other people access to that user's calendar, it will not cause the meeting invite to be sent to those people.  To find out what is going on, you need to check a couple of things:

1. In that user's Outlook, see if there is any rule that does the auto forward
2. In the domain controller, look into the Active Directory Users and Computers for that user account, in the "Exchange general" tab, click the "delivery options" and check if any forwarding setting there.
3. If you have enabled the message tracking, in the Exchange server, run the System Manager, then go to the "tools" -> "message tracking center", run the tracking of the sent meeting invite and see how it gets other 6 recipients.  Once you have the results, double click them one by one, you will see more details of them.

And when you add a new person you have the option to check wether they can or cant receive your meeting invites.
