I've got a user is trying to delete a recurring meeting off of her calendar but the meeting is showing her as the organizer when in fact the organizer is someone else. So if she deletes the meeting it would delete it off of everyone else's calendar. I've checked the other users calendars that are on the meeting and it does list another user as the organizer of the meeting. Has anyone seen this before or know how to correct it?

Thank you for your suggestion. I had the user delete the meeting request which did in fact delete it off of everyone else's calendar and then I had the real organizer recreate it. But your suggestion sounds like the way to got where I could have avoided the original owner recreate it. I found the below from MS about this issue fyi:

Microsoft has this issue documented in the following Knowledge Base article. Basically, your only recourse is to delete the damaged meeting from the affected user's calendar, and patch the Exchange Server to the referenced patch level for Exchange 2007 to prevent future issues.

Issue 1.2 - Attendee becomes meeting organizer

When you synchronize your iOS or Android device by using Exchange ActiveSync on an Exchange Server 2007 mailbox, you may unexpectedly become the organizer for a meeting that you were invited to. This does not change the meeting for all attendees.

Solution

This can occur if you change the reminder for a single occurrence of a recurring meeting on an iOS or Android device. There may be other property changes to meeting items that may result in the same symptom.

This issue is resolved in Rollup Update 4 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3. See the KB article below for additional information.

2521063 You are incorrectly displayed as a meeting organizer after you synchronize the meeting by using your mobile device in an Exchange Server 2007 environment

Note Affected meetings must be deleted and replacement meetings must be created after the servers are patched.

correct, to restore the rightful owner you need to recreate the meetings - the patch won't undo the damage.
