Messages in Exchange queue

This one is crazy, before I dig in, I thought I'd see if anyone else had run across this.  When we set up an appointment in Exchange 2003 and invite attendess, all of them get the invite, regardless if they are internal or external addresses. The problem comes when the meeting organizer makes a change to the meeting; for some reason, all internal users get the update notification, but the notifications to any exteranl users get stuck in the outbound queue and just sit there.  Why would only update notifications get stuck?

A meeting update message or a meeting cancellation message from an Exchange 2003 user is not delivered to an Exchange 2007 user

Akhater - how do I check the last error status of each email?  Where do I look for that?
Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I go to the Exchange System Manager, and go to Queues.  There is nothing there at all that references "Last Error".  Can you post a screen shot of where you are seeing this?
