2010 calendar appointment opening as new email

Posted on 2011-04-25

I have a user using Outlook 2010 to open a share calendar of a user who is using Outlook 2003. Both users are in online mode and we are running exchange 2003. When he opens a recurring meeting on the share calendar, it opens up as new email instead of a meeting event. This does not happen on all the recurring meetings, just some particular ones. It happens on both outlook 2003 and 2010 (even if you load the profile from some other workstation). I tried outlook.exe /cleanprofile on the mailbox owner's computer but didn't resolve the issue. Any advise?

    Anybody know how to delete this meeting item? I tried to delete it in safe mode with no luck.

    Guessing the recurring meeting is quite an old one, One that existed before the 2010 upgrade, and has no end date.
    After a while such appointment can become corrupt
    Best way to fix them is to open the series.
    Set an end date of Today.
    Create a New Recurring appointment
    With same details as the corrupt appointment
    This time set an end date no more than a year from now.

    No when you open the appointment(s) should be fixed
