I think this is an issue with Outlook 2007.  We've had it happen before with a couple users, but when they sent the request through OWA or Outlook 2003 it would go through.

What error does the Non Delivery Report indicate?  Is it a timeout error that sits in the queue for 48 hours before rejecting?

I had this issue personally, but haven't been able to figure it out.

A friend has a "personalized" email address that gets redirected, through a hosting service, to their Yahoo email account.  I normally send Meeting Requests to the personalized email account, but occasionally (1 in 10) they get stuck in queue on my Exchange server and eventually time-out.  Other messages or meetings I send, go right through, which the problem meeting request stays in queue.  If I send the same meeting request directly to Yahoo, it works.  I believe the problem is a combination of certain characters / options in the meeting request and specific mail systems.  I have been using Outlook 2007, and never thought to try OWA or 2003.  The next time one gets stuck, I'll try that...

Hello Guys, Sorry for the delay. Unfortunately even after reinstalling office 2007 - meeting request getting stuck in queue. If the same user sends a meeting request to same persons from webmail - it went through...any more ideas?
