Receiveing Duplicate meeting request when I delete

I have Outlook 2007 on exchange 2003.

When I send a meeting request, say to 10 people, I also receive a copy of that request which is normal.  When I delete because I really dont need it, It send it to those 10 people again and to me. I tried testing it over and over even rebooting my computer, rebooting the exchange server, when i delete the request that I sent, I receive it again.  So if I delete it 10 times, those 10 people I sent the meeting request to receives it 10 times as well.

Please advise.

If you create a new meeting all users that you invited to this meeting will receive an invitation to the meeting request, normally if you change the meeting in any way all users that have accepted the request will get an update mail send to them, so this is by design..

Or am I missing something here and are you doing soemthing else??

Actually this is how it is.  I send an email to a Distribution group say, "sales"  and 10 people including me are in the distribution list email alias.  So I get a copy of this meeting request on my inbox.  When i delete it from my inbox (Not on my calendar), it sends it again to everyone including me.  Im not opening the calendar meeting request and then cancelling.  Im just merely deleting the copy on my inbox.  so freagin weird

Did you set up some sort of setting that the distribution list is being updated every time you do an action on it??
To be honest haven't seen this behaviour before..
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

No. Nothing like you mentioned above is set up to make it like this.

pff, to be honest i'm out of ideas without looking at the issue itself..
I do know of strange things happening with meeting request send to users, specially with delegates. This could trigger the weirdest kinds of things for sening mails..

This however i have not seen before.. Sorry i can't help you any further..
