A user created a new Appointment in his Outlook 2010 calendar and sent an invitation to several other users. After getting a confirmation from the attendees, he received multiple Read Receipts from them as well.
The Read Receipts state, that the invitation message was deleted while it was unread.
The user had no configuration for Delivery or Read Receipts in Outlook.
Where do those receipts come from?

Exchange Server Version: Exchange Server 2010 SP1 RU1
Client Version: Outlook 2010

Does the user have an additional device that syncs with Outlook? Such as a smartphone? (Iphone, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, etc) I recently encountered a situation where a user was receiving the same Read Receipts over and over but it turned out that the cause was her Iphone.

I'm not proficient in blackberries, but you may want to ensure there are no Read Receipt settings enabled on said device.

The strange thing is, only the invitations were affected, no other mails.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

Hmm... I'll look through my outlook 2010 settings and see if there's something in there we could change. Is he continuously receiving the receipts?

No, not in the last few days.
It first occured after the Update Rollup 1 installation for Exchange.

I was informed that this is a known bug in Exchange 2010.
I hope it will be fixed in the next update rollup.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!
