Delegate deletes meeting request which causes item to delete from calendar

Environment: Exchange 2003, Outlook 2010

An Administrative Assistant gets meeting requests for her Director. The director gets them as well. The director wants to be able to accept/decline, but wants the AA to see the invites. If the AA deletes a meeting request that hasn't been acknowledged by the director, it deletes the item off of the directors calendar.

The AA would like to be able to accept or decline the meetings, but also be able to just delete the request without affecting the Directors calendar.

She says this didn't occur in Outlook 2007, but I cannot confirm that.

A delegate sees the same copy of the item in a mailbox (message, invite, etc.) that the principal sees. So, if a delegate deletes the item it cannot be viewed by anyone else - principal or otherwise. I would be interested to learn how this worked in Outlook 2007.
