Removing publicDelegates items from ADSI in AD doesn't update client

I removed all the people listed in this person's publicdelegates attributes from his AD account on all the servers but a day later they still show up when he goes to File > Account Settings > Delegates.

What other way can I remove them without user having to remove them? His client freezes when he tries but that is a separate issue with Citrix.

It might be worth scanning the following article:

It talks about adding AD permissions for things such as delegates but you can replace add-adpermissions with remove-adpermissions.

You don't say which version of Exchange, so I've gone with 2007 but there's a link to an updated version.

Have you checked your AD replication? Any event ID's that might suggest problems?

I'm not sure it's just weird because the users keep getting his appointment reminds and I can't seem to get it to stop.
Can't go into local Outlook delegates to remove the users because it freezes up the Outlook client.

Ok, it looks like after waiting about 10 mins, the Delegates list finally comes up.
Must be a domain or Exchange issue that causes it to retrieve the list so slowly. There's about 40 delegates in there I needed to remove for this person. Some of them had (Not Found) next to the mailbox names.

Yeah even selecting one delegate and clicking "Remove" just sits there clocking for a super long time.

And ADSI edit the publicDelegates only shows 2, however there's like 40 in there within the Outlook GUI. Just can't remove them due to Not Responding/locking up.

Wonder if there's a way to check through MFCMapi?

Well I was able to remove one Delegate after about 30 mins of waiting on the "Not responding" window  to began responding.

However, after I hit OK, I got this message:

---------------------------
Microsoft Outlook
---------------------------
The Delegates settings were not saved correctly.  Cannot activate send-on-behalf-of list.
The operation failed.
---------------------------
OK
