Outlook Automatic Invite Acceptance No Longer Working

I am using OLK 2007on Exchange 2003.  
 
The user is the delegate with full privilages for the owners calendar.
 
Previously, when I would add an event and invite staff and  
 
invite myself, I would be prompted with "Do you want to update your calendar  
 
now?" and say yes. Now, I don't get the message. Instead, I ALSO get an  
 
emailed invitation.  
 
This is very annoying. Now only one event has happened - my password was changed.
 
Can anyone shed some light on what hotfixes or other setting changes may  
 
have caused this change in behavior? I'd really like it back the way it was!

First try this: Close Outlook, click Start->Run, type Outlook /cleanprofile
If that doesn't do the trick then recreate the Outlook profile. Profile corruption is the source of many strange behaviours in Outlook.
You may first want to save away the address cache (the .nk2 file) which contains the addresses the user has prevoiusly sent successfully. You find the .nk2 file here (XP):
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
(Vista / W7: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook)
If you do not know how to recreate a profile: http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/newprofile.htm
After recreating the profile you can restore the .nk2 file to the same location assuming you used the same name for the new Outlook profile.
