Outlook 2007 error for attachment size overlimit with no attachment

A user is receiving an error that "The attachment size exceeds the allowable limit" for a recurring meeting invitation which contains no attachment.  Others have seen this problem, and from what I can ascertain so far, there's no fix.  This meeting was in Outlook 2003 and ported over in the upgrade to Outlook 2007, so it occurs on updates to the invitation.  The user cannot cancel all occurrences of meeting either without same error.  Meeting is recurring with no end date.

Can the meeting be deleted completely and then rescheduled?

If the user logs into another pc, can the issue be duplicated?  If not, rebuild the user profile on the pc in question.

If it is duplicated, who handles the exchange server?  It will need to be resolved there.

Also, probably not the issue, but see what size the calendar folder is - may need to delete old calendar attachments to free up space.
