Hi Experts,
I keep on receiving all the calendar invites that are made for another user on my exchange organization. I cannot figure why and it becomes anoying as it puts the appointements in my calendar.
This is not making any changes in the user calendar.
Does anyone knows how I could sort this out? It only happens for calendar entries
I am the admin of the exchange org.
Thank you

"dlan75", are you a delegate, or is the other user a delegate for you? To check, open Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Delegates tab. If so, UNCHECK "Delegate recieves copies of meeting-related messages...".

It sounds like you may be a delegate for them. If this is the case they most likely have the option so that delegates receive copies of meeting invitations. You will need to have this setting changed on their machine.

Your account might have added as a delegate that user? Check his/her outlook profile and verify the delegate permissions.

Since you are the admin for the exchange organization use that account to set up the persons mail profile you are receiving the calendar reminders for. This can be done in control panel, mail.

Once in their account go to tools, options, delegates, if you see yourself there click permissions. Under there you should see a check box for delegate recieves meeting reminders.

Have you configured the outlook profile the user where you are running mdbview? If you are using your credentials then you should have full access on user mailbox.

This is weird&
User A sends a meeting request to user B and user C receives it, In this scenario you need to do the above process in "user B"'s outlook profile.. Are we in same page?

If yes... are the meetings sent to multiple users?
