Cannot delete attachments from 1 instances of a recurring event RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    My company is using Outlook 2007 connecting to Exchange server.

    We found that when we removed the attachment from 1 occurance of a recurring meeting event and then send update, it shown the update was sucessful. But when we open the updated calendar entry, the attachment remains in the occurance. Can anyone explain or resolve this issue? Many thanks!

  • You could remove the occurrence you want to change, then add it back without the attachment.

  • As I understand it, changing one occurrence separates that occurrence from the recurring event, and it becomes a separate entity.  So, you have two entities:

    1.  Original recurring meeting with attachment, and

    2. Individual meeting with no attachment.

  • No, it is not true for my case. The the occurence that I wanted the attachment to be removed from remains a recurring event. In fact, I can "ADD" another attachment to this single occurance ony, but when I was trying to "delete" ALL the attached file, the final result is, there is still at least 1 file left.

  • Have you tried editing the recurring event instead of a single instance?

  • Yes, when I removed the attachment for the recurring event, the attachments from all instances were removed. But that is not what I want. I only want to withdraw the files from specific instances.

    I would like to know if it is a normal result for recurring meetings. But I found it strange when I can Add, Update but cannot Delete the attachment from a single instance.

  • I am using Outlook 2016.

    There are 2 attachments in all occurrences of a recurring event. Deleting one attachment from one of the occurrences of the event is not happening. 2 attachments are seen always in that occurrence. Attachment table seen from Outlook spy shows 2 attachments after deleting an attachment.

    This issue is not seen with Outlook 2013.

  • Are you sure that you're connecting in online mode and what you're seeing isn't a stale cache?

  • Yes. It's online mode. 

    Exchange server is not used here.
    I can see the issue happening with an IMAP account. Without connecting to the server, this issue is seen with the local pst.

  • Then you are posting in the wrong forum, as this the name of this one is clearly "Previous Versions of Exchange > Exchange Previous Versions - Outlook, OWA, POP, and IMAP Clients".  Therefore, I recommend that you post this in the Outlook Forum:  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/outlook/threads
