Outlook 2003 - sending invite goes to wrong people

Strange issue with Outlook 2003 on Exchange 2003 SBS server.
Sent invitation to another user, got a reply back it did not go through but after checking with the user it did go through. However it did state the invitation went to two other people who are no longer with the company.
Strange. Any ideas?

Hi,

Sounds like the one or more of the users who you send the invitation to have had in the past delegates setup to receive meeting notification sent to them.

A very common problem that causes an NDR when a meeting request is sent is due to someone having set the deleted user up as a delegate that had the option set to forward meeting requests to my delegate option.

If the user has left you need to clean up the delegate rule. Check the delegates for User1. This error is normally caused by duplicates being set to recieve meeting requests via Outlook > Tools > Options > Delegates.

The other thing I've read before that may work for you is to remove any delegates from the account. Restart outlook. Add a new delegate that was never a delegate before. Restart Outlook. Remove the newly assigned delegate again and restart Outlook. This might reset the delegate process and clear it up.

When you set up delegates a hidden rule in the Inbox that automatically forwards meeting requests to the delegate. If this gets corrupted you can use MFCMapi to clean them up - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924297.
