Hi there

I have a user that has a reocurring meeting setup by a user that left the company.

I have full access on the mailstore and can't delete the old item I get 'can't open this item'.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of this ?

Thanks

Arm

Ok I can probably fix this. Is this microsoft exchange?

What OS are you running? SBS or Server 2003?

Open microsoft web access (company website's remote email). Locate the event, highlight, open the series, minimise the opened window, hold shift key, press delete cross along the top of the calendar.
