Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 Ent
MS Exchange 2007

one of the users (user1) sent out an outlook invitation to the entire company (using everyone distribution group)

one of the recipients (user2) declined to attend.

now user1 that sent out the invite constantly receives declined confirmation from user2
so far about 10-15 declines.

it must be stuck in the queue somewhere... Where to look for it ?

Thanks !

Couple of places to check

1) Corrupt Rule in OL of user2 - check in their OL, if he/she has a corrupt rule (worst case, you'll need to work with MFCMApi)
2) Check Queues using Get-Queue and verify if the emails are stuck there.
3) Lastly, re-mount blank database of Transport server - this would ensure that you've got blank database and fresh start.

Here is the link for Transport database: link
