Outlook Appointments after account deleted RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have made many appointments with Outlook; there are room reservations that are needed in the future tied into the appointments.  I am about to resign and the Outlook account will be deleted. 

    1. What will happen to the appointments once my account is deleted?

    2. If I set up a delegate for Outlook Calendar, will appointments stay in place?

  • It's good that you're thinking about this.  Too few people do.

    1.  Nothing.  Which isn't a good thing.  Suggest that whomever is taking over for you recreate the future appointments under his or her own name, and then you can delete your versions, choosing to notify all other invitees.  That'll ensure that everyone's calendar will be cleaned up.

    2.  I don't think that will help.  The problem is that you're the organizer, which can't be changed as far as I know.
