Delegate gets invited to meetings on which manager was invited

    Question

  • Alice is the delegate for Bob. Delegate settings are the defaults.

    Cathy sends a meeting invite to Bob and Alice receives the invite as normal for a delegate, but Alice ALSO gets invited to the meeting too. Alice is not in the invite list. Both Alice and Bob have calendar entries with the invite.

    Have tried the following tshooting on both Alice and Bob's machines:

    01. New profiles

    02. Cached mode and online mode

    03. Repaired office

    04. Had Alice and Bob simultaneously logon into a clean Windows 10 VM (separate VMs) that neither Alice or Bob have ever logged into, so no "junk" to confound the results

    05. Deleted the "SCHEDULE+ EMS" rule with MFCMAPI on Bob's mailbox a la https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mahuynh/2012/06/27/using-mfcmapi-to-delete-the-hidden-forward-to-delegates-rule/

    06. Bob is connecting to his mailbox via both the native iOS mail app and Outlook for iOS

    Anyone got any idea what's going on? My next step is putting in a PSS case.

    Thanks!
