Problem with recurring appointments

I have a colleague who uses recurring daily appointments to manage where his engineers are (see screenshot)

If he renames it by typing something after the name, it turns the calendar appointment into an email when it is double clicked on rather than an appointment.

If you were to double click on a non-edited recurrence, it shows the date as being back in the past presumably when it was created. It is not possible to change the date without getting the error that two appointments for this object are not possible on the same day.

What could be causing the behaviour for these two things?

Depending on what version of Outlook Client is Used I would Check that they have the latest Office Service pack installed.

Otherwise, my gut feeling is that these recurring appointments have been created with no end date.
Creating recurring appointment with no end date makes them suseptible to corruption.
Even more so if they are regurally updated.

Best way to fix is to set the end date as today.
Create a NEW recurring appointment with an end date of no greater than 1 year
