Hidden Rule in Exchange 2013, How can I clear this?

I have an Users inbox that is forwarding ALL appointments sent to him to another mailbox.  It only happens when you send him a meeting request.  It does not do it with emails.

In turn he Gets the request and that is fine.  But the other user also gets the same request that doesn't have anything to do with them.

The Inbox that it was destined for does not have any rules or client rules set up.

Here is the Header of the email and indicates that it was Forwarded but cant find this rule!  I deleted out most the info.

JL sends meeting to BAD.
BAD receives Meeting.
Marketing Also receives message from JL


The reason I think there are some hidden rules are these in the header:

does the mailbox or the Outlook client have any rules to forward to Marketing?  I have seen where setting a rule to forward to another email address did not work for email but did it for meetings only. My solution was to delete the rule since it was not working for emails.

There are 0 Rules for that mailbox.  I logged into the users Mailbox via OWA and looked at the rules and there were 0.

I then remoted over to their machine to look at their Outlook client and there were 0.

Running the powershell command against his mailbox:

get-inboxrule -mailbox BAD

Yields zero results.

On Another Note the Mailbox receiving these "Forwarded" messages has blue circle I under the name of the sender of the meeting and states:

Received for (users name)

Why in the world is this mailbox receiving meetings intended for this other user.

I cant figure it out as again no rules in place.

Could be delegates. That would explain why it only occurs for meeting requests.
You may have a stale delegate entry which has to be removed using adsiedit.

That sounds very likely.  What is the category I need to look for when using asdiedit?

I looked under msexchdelegatelistlink but that is for the full access people and there is only myself listed in there.

The user had set up a delegate.  Wow I learned something new today.  Never have used that feature before.

Thanks Simon!  I didn't use adsiedit thought, I remoted to the client and had him remove it from within Outlook.
