Outlook 2007 ignoring "don't save changes" in calendar

HI,

I have a strange problem with Outlook 2007 and am hoping someone can assist.
It goes something like this:

- I create a meeting request for 3pm today (the time doesn't matter) and
send it to someone.
- I then open up that appointment/meeting in my calendar and change the time
to 5pm.
- Before saving or sending the update I decide that I actually don't want to
change the time of the meeting.
- I press the X button to close the window and I'm asked whether I want to
save the changes and send an update, or don't save changes.
- I click don't save changes and the window closes.

This is where it starts getting weird.
- I look in my calendar and can see the meeting showing up at 3pm, which is
right. However, if I double click the meeting to open it up it now shows it
with a start time of 5pm. To make things worse, when I close Outlook it seems
to decide that it needs to automatically send an update to the attendees with
a time of 5pm.

So basically it's saving changes to the meeting when I told it not to, and
then it's automatically sending updated invites when it shouldn't. I
reinstalled Outlook 2007 a couple of weeks ago and that seemed to fix the
problem. However, I noticed today that the exact same problem has come back
again. Can anyone please help.

Thanks.

Hi Diane,

Thanks for the response.

I removed a few plug-ins that I thought might be causing a problem. I'm now
left with the following and I'm not sure if it's safe to remove them:

Active App Add-ins:
Exchange Unified Messaging
MS office sharepoint server colleague import add-in
MS outlook mobile service

Inactive App Add-ins:
Calendar gadget for windows sideshow
MS Access outlook add-in for data collection
MS VBA for outlook addin.

Are any of these likely to be causing a problem?

Thanks,

Chris

Do you use Exchange server and/or sharepoint? forward messages to a mobile
device? if not, you can safely disable these:
Exchange Unified Messaging
MS office sharepoint server colleague import add-in
MS outlook mobile service

I don't think any of these would affect the calendar.
