You may need to repair their PST files. The only time I saw this was with a POP3 setup and I had to delete the old calendar events and clear the rest with a PST editor.

First, try recreating their mail profile on their workstation and if that doesn't work do a scan PST. A new mail profile might clear the issues!

What happened when you used this?
Did you get an error?
If the above is the exact contect you used, I would suspect it didnt work

Try using
Start>Run> Outlook.exe /cleanreminders

"no error pops up other than the usual"

Whats the usual?

How many appointments or reminders are we talking about for these users?
Is this just for 1  meeting?

Is it a recurring meeting?

Can you just delete the meeting in their calendar and create a new one?
