Calender Items Disappearing Before Invitees Can Accept

Hello--

We have a weird one here. One of our administrative assistants has Send on
Behalf Of permissions for several managers that she needs to schedule
meetings for in Outlook. In her Calender Options she has the 'Use this
response when you propose a new meeting times' selected to Tentative.

Here is the issue: When she tries to invite an attendee on behalf of one of
her managers, the calender item disappears right before her eyes. As a
consequence, the intended attendee doesn't have the details of the meeting
and of course the entry never gets into their calender.

We are running Exchange 2003 on Server 2003 and all users are on Windows XP
Pro.

There is another administrative assistant that has the same issue when she
tries to invite attendees too.

The client said she used this same procedure with the same settings at her
old company and it worked fine. Also, normal calender invites work fine for
her own calender.

I have no idea even where to begin looking for the cause of this issue. Any
help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this? There are no sync
issues reported in the clients Outlook folders.

1. this is a newsgroup, not a forum. Bump doesn't usually do much.

2. So she is inviting someone who has delegates? Where is it disappearing
from - her calendar, their calendar or ?

1. Good point, thank you.
2. The assistant schedules a meeting on behalf of her managers as well as
invites attendees (also on behalf of her managers). Before the intended
invitee can accept the meeting invitation, the meeting disappears from the
managers' calender (which is being viewed by the assistant as their calenders
are shared). When an invited attendee clicks accept to the invitation, they
get an error that says, "The function cannot be performed because the object
has been deleted"

Let me know if you need anything else. I appreciate your help.

Any PDA synching in the mix?

The managers have Blackberrys and we synchronize them via a Blackberry
Enterprise Server with Exchange. No PDAs though.

Blackberries are PDA, in my opinion. Blackberry synching is a big cause of
disappearing Outlook items.
