Unable to Delete Recurring Calendar Appointments

We have a shared calendar  with a recurring appointment that a former employee had created. I have given the "Default" user "Author" permissions so we could delete the series for the appointment; but when we deleted it...it returns in a matter of 10 seconds. Then when we try and deleted it again we get the following message.

Could not complete the deletion. The items may have been already deleted or moved.

I've tried closing and going back into Outlook using the "/cleanfreebusy" switch; but this has not resolved the issue.

Any idea on how to resolve this issue?

I would attempt to recreate the outlook profile.

kissdacook87,

This is happening to everyone in the office; so it is definitely not a profile issue.

Found a solution. I've given the "Default" user the "Owner" permission through PowerShell temporarily and I was then able to delete the series of appointments. I used the following command.

Set-MailboxFolderPermission companyuser:\Calendar -User Default -AccessRights Owner

After the task was complete I set the permissions for the Default user back to "Reviewer" (without quotes) by running the same command again in PowerShell.
