Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You are running Outlook 2003 in offline mode.
  • You use Outlook 2003 to delete the accepted meeting request.
  • When synchronization occurs between the Outlook 2003 client that is running in offline mode and the server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server, the accepted meeting request is deleted. Additionally, the meeting is removed from your Calendar.
