Outlook 2007 Calendar meeting request Issue.

Hi All.
Hope you can assist.

I am running exchange server 2007 & Outlook 2007 clients. We have a situation where meeting requests are sent & then received as per normal, however sometimes recipients then become the owners / organizer of the meetings, which they were not as they did not organise the meeting.

This causes a lot of panic as when people want to delete the meeting out of their calendars as the owner they are afraid it may cancel the meetings out of everyone's calendar/diary.

Any Ideas?

Pretty sure this was a known issue resolved in SP2

I'm not sure if they have that service pack installed as yet but will be checking soon enough.
There is also a no of duplicate messages. It seems as if the BlackBerry copied all her old messages back to outlook when it resynched

You should find that SP2 fixes the issue Mentioned in the Original Post.

To be Fair, the duplicate issue is really a seperate issue and should be addressed in a New Question.

However, to remove duplicates you will need to use a 3rd party tool
here are some links to some
