Remove recurring calendar event created by account that no longer exists

We recently did a full network migration that included moving an off-line exchange database to a new exchange server using Lepide Exchange migration tool.  It read all the mail items in the old .edb file and moved the items into the new mailbox associated with that user.

Of course, the new AD and mail database has all new user accounts, so for the recurring events that were moved over the originator of the event no longer really exists in the database, and the user can not delete the meeting and can not send a cancellation notice because they aren't the 'original' creator, as far as AD is concerned.

Is there any 'easy' way to delete this recurring event?

Hello,

I recommend you setup the Calendar Repair Assistance to run on a schedule. This should eliminate these orphaned meetings.

Thanks, I will set that up.

I was able to remove the recurring event by giving myself full access to the mailbox, then opened the users calendar and removed the recurrence of the meeting.  I guess that since I 'took' full access it gave my account full rights to all the items in the mailbox even though the user of the mailbox didn't have rights to that calendar item because it wasn't created by their new account in the new domain.

Certainly a brute force method, but it worked.
