Exchange 2007 Shared Calendar Forwarding Updates to incorrect Users

I have a customer that has shared their calendar in Exchange 2007 and when another end user creates something on the calendar and invites attendees it works fine.  But when that person or another person updates the calendar entry it notifies people that are not involved with the original meeting at all and not the people who are attendees.

I've checked everything I can find but I can't see where it should be doing this anywhere.

Have you deleted the content in the Outlook folder on the PC where the user is making the changes. I had an issue similar and it wasn't until I deleted the .obi files, for example "calendar_name.xml.obi" after deleting calendar sharing started working correctly.

In WIN7 the profile path is: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

I will give that a try.

Does that just delete the "local/cached" copy of the calendar and then it re-syncs the calendar next time Outlook opens up?

Yes, it won't hurt anything. If you want to reset all of the Outlook files delete everything in the Outlook folder except the .pst files (if there are any). FYI the .ost file is the cached outlook file, make sure to turn off hiden files so you don't accidentally delete a pst file.

I have looked in that path and don't see a file name for the calendar involved or any calendar.

I checked several computers that have the calendar in their list and don't see the .obi file related to the calendar on any of them

did you find a ost file, if so delete it and open Outlook to rebuild.
