Delegates causing duplicate calendar events

Posted on 2012-08-15
Last Modified: 2013-03-13
I have two users (both on outlook 2010) that have delegated their calendars and tasks to each other, and they want their calendars to sync, so they have check marked the "Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me" option.
Now they have duplicated calendar events.  Any ideas?  There are no other delegates for these accounts.

    This may help:

    In Outook, select File > Info
    Click the Account Settings Button
    Choose Delegate Access
    Select the Delegates Name
    Change the option at the bottom to be one of the first two options instead of the last one.

    FYI...if these options are greyed out, click Permissions and check the "Delegates receives copies of meeting related items..." box

    I guess you can rather have one delegate the meeting and one user a Outlook rule .... as delegating can cause looping as you say send Meeting of UserA to UserB and than again you say send meeting of UserB to UserA ..... so its like a loop and that will surely cause a looping. If its between 2 users why not have a rule that says any meeting to UserA to send it to UserB as an attachment ?

    You can than create a folder in both users Outlook where in any email processed by this rule will be sent and can be checked by them.

    Let me know if this can be done if there is any issues you can point them out and we can try to work around them.
