Exchange 2010/Outlook 2013 user proposes new time for meeting - Other can't accept it - grayed out

Posted on 2014-08-05

We are running Exchange 2010 SP3.
The one user I will be refering to runs latest Office 2013 Pro.
Problem was happening in Office 2010 with that user.

I set up a meeting, that user proposes a new time, I am noticed that the meeting was cancelled and that the user proposes a new time, but I am unable to accept/decline the proposition, those buttons being grayed out.

The meeting shows in my agenda at the new proposed time, as I I had accepted it.
When I try to set up a test meeting with my fellow sysadmin, he can propose new time, and I am able to accept.
Seems to only be happenning with that account, with other people than me as well.

Any clue ?
I don't...
Been googling for a few days, nothing good came out...
This guy being a manager, I would love to correct this asap...

Thanks for your help, experts !

    Do you have access to his calendar? what is the permission set for anonymous and default users?

    Sorry for late reply, was sick yesterday and was locked out of the site this morning for billing/renewal issue.
    I will check the permissions to his calendar, sounds like this might be the problem.

    Thanks !
