In my Exchange 2003 public folders i have a recurring event that was setup by an account that is no longer active. The account and mailbox were deleted.

If i recreate the users account and log onto the Exchange server i cannot delete the recurring appt, i get an access denied

If i connect to the server as myself (domain admin rights) i cannot delete or change appt either.

Suggestions?

Give your own account "Administer Information Store" (also called ms-Exch-Store-Admin on Exchange 2007+2010) and "Receive As" permissions on the Public Folder store and you will be able to remove this (and everything else for that matter). The permissions is not part of "Domain Admin" or any other admin group so you must set these permissions manually.
