We have a user who left our company and has been deleted from Active Directory and his mailbox has been purged from Exchange, however, he used to be on many different meeting schedules and his name is still on there. If anyone tries to cancel a meeting with his name on it, the person gets an undelivered message (this is logical since the deleted user no longer has a mailbox). I thought if you delete a user from AD and Exchange the calendar gets updated. Please help me resolve this issue. I tried Google and the majority of the websites mention "Outlook Delegates" but I don't beleive this is the case. I just need this deleted user not to appear on everyone's calendar.

Our environment is Windows 2003 with Exchange 2003.
