Delegate user gets meeting request, can't respond

I have Exchange 2000/Outlook 2000 on my Windows network. User A is sending
a meeting request to The Boss. The Boss is configured to automatically
accept all meeting requests, which works fine in sending a response to User
A. However, User B, who is a delegate of The Boss, gets a copy of the
meeting request in her inbox for some reason. When she tries to accept or
decline the meeting request she gets a message stating that she doesn't have
permission to do that, which is fine as that's what I prefer.

However, I'd like to stop User B from getting a copy of the meeting request
sent to The Boss. Many other users on my network have the same privileges
for The Boss's calendar as User B and they don't get copies of these meeting
requests. Both User A and User B have Author (read / create / edit own
items) privileges on The Boss's calendar as well as Send on Behalf privileges
in AD. Can anyone help?

You need to adjust the delegate settings from receiving copies of the
requests.

Open the Boss's calendar and look very closely at the one client in
question. Hi-lite the name in the delegate box and then look closely
at that 1st page. Make sure no check marks are turned on where they
should not be. Then click further to see other specific settings for that
delegate. You will find the answer if you look closer.

I have opened the properties of the Boss's calendar. Looking at the
permissions tab, I noticed that while Users A and B both have the exact same
permissions, User A is called an Editor while User B is an Author. I changed
User A's permission type to author, even though it still has the exact same
permissions. I can't find anything else different between these, they
otherwise have the same permissions. Is there a check box somewhere to
disable passing meeting requests on to the delegate? I have checked in AD
and Outlook's Calendar properties and the menu under Tools --> Options in
Outlook regarding delegates and can't find anything different about these
two.

As I mentioned before, you need to check on the DELEGATES tab
in the options menu. This is different than the properties of the calendar.

Just to make sure we're on the same page here, you are referring to the
Delgates tab on the Boss's Outlook client under Tools --> Options, correct?
That's where I've been looking, and both users have Author privileges on his
calendar, as they are supposed to. User A also has read/write permissions
on the Task List and read permissions on the Inbox, but User B does not need
those privileges so is not assigned them. Neither user has the check box
checked to have meeting requests forwarded to them. Is this making any sense?

Yes, that is correct.

You may try having the Exchange administrator remove the "Problem Child"
from the "Send As" in the Active Directory. Then confirm that it has been
removed from both the DELEGATES tab and for good measure check the
Calendar properties and remove the client from there.

Then when you are sure that everything is in sync, have the boss re-add
the "Problem Child" as a delegate (if that is your intention) making sure
that
all permissions are as you wish.
