After many years of me managing my own calendar, Outlook has decided I have a delegate. So far, has only happened with meetings organized by another person. I do not have any delegates. Anybody know what causes this and how to fix it.

"After many years of me managing my own calendar, Outlook has decided I have a delegate. "

This is really bit unclear.

Can you explain in detail?

How have you come up with this conclusion?

If you go into your delegate settings, you dont see any delegate there?

When someone send you a meeting request are they getting a response from your delegate?

When you send someone an email, are you getting a response from a delegate?

"So far, has only happened with meetings organized by another person"

Hi, Thank you for the quick response. When i set up a meeting I get a reply that says the meeting request has been sent to your delegates. your delegate has not responded to the meeting. I don't have any delegates.

This is when you create a meeting in your default calendar right?

You only get this after you send the meeting?

Could be a couple of things here

COuld be a ghost delegate.
You may not see any delegates in your OUtlook Profile, but possible the delegate cache is corrupt

To Fix this all you need to do is go to your delegate settings in Outlook
You should see no one listed

Now add a delegate, select anyone. Doesnt matter
(Just make sure you dont select send an email summarizing permissions)

Close and re-open outlook
Now go back to delegates
Remove the delegate

Restart Outlook

This will clear and recreate your delegate cache
Any ghost delegates will now be removed

Now test


If you complete the above and still get a returned message about an delegate
Its possible one of the persons you are including in your meeting has an issue with their delegates as well.

You may find they have you listted as a delegate and receives a copy of all meeting related messages ect ect

See if you can narrow it down to a specific user you invite to your meetings to get this messgae

Then have a look at their delegate settings


Something else that I have also heard that can cause odd delegate messages is when users sync their mailbox with a mobile device.

If you have active sync setup on a mobile device of yours
Turn it off and test
